    Going to Disneyworld resort in Sept with the kids (1st time!) When travelling around Disney, will buses, etc. be well marked so we will know which one we need to take or do we ask at our resort desk? Thanks, love your panel!

    Hi Bonnie!

    First trips are extra magical!  Congratulations on booking yours!  Be sure to pick up some free "First Visit" pins at Guest Relations at whichever park you visit first, and wear them proudly throughout your vacation!

    I think that you will find that Disney transportation is very "user friendly" and easy to access.  I have been accused of being "directionally challenged" (seriously, I can't get to my local grocery store without a GPS device!) and I've never had a problem figuring out which buses, boats or monorails are going where at Disney.  The bus stops, buses, monorail platforms and boat launches are all clearly marked at each of the parks, Downtown Disney and the resorts.   When you check in at your Disney resort, the Cast Member will likely tell you where the closest bus stop to the parks is to your room, however, feel free to ask.  Once you get to the stop, figuring out which bus to catch is simple. 

    The only time getting from location to location can get a bit confusing is some times when you try to go from resort to resort (for dinner reservations, for example) and need to "connect" at a theme park or the Ticket and Transportation Center.  The best thing to do in this case is simply to ask a Cast Member at the front desk or concierge at your resort for directions on what the shortest and simplest route to take is.

    Have a wonderful trip!
