    Just 5 days to go from cold MN to WDW !! We are staying a few days at Lake Buena Vista Plaza before going to Yacht Club. Does Disney offer the complimentary shuttle to and from these properties? Thanks.

    Hi Tom!

    I'm not sure exactly which hotel you're staying at, but I'm going to assume it is a Downtown Disney resort.  My guess is you're staying in the Buena Vista Plaza Hotel & Spa or the Best Western Lake Buena Vista .

    Disney Transportation does not run between the Downtown Disney resorts and the theme parks or Disney resort hotels.  The independent resorts at Downtown Disney provide their own shuttle buses.  You could take one of their buses to a theme park and then transfer to a Disney bus going to the Yacht Club.  Another option is to take their shuttle or walk to Downtown Disney and then catch a Disney bus going to the Yacht Club; however, based on my experience, their shuttle buses don't start running to Downtown Disney until late afternoon / early evening.

    The most convenient mode of transportation would be a taxi.  I have found taxis to be very fast and inexpensive when traveling anywhere on Disney property.

    You can get more information on all of the independent Downtown Disney resort hotels at

    Have a magical vacation and enjoy the weather!
