    What is the fastest way to get to the parks from your hotel?

    Hi, Kim!  Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    In my opinion, all of the convenient transportation options is one of the best things about staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.   Your best plan for traveling from your resort hotel to the theme parks really depends on which Walt Disney World Resort Hotel you have chosen and which theme park you are visiting.  For instance, some Walt Disney World Resort Hotels have access to the monorail system which quickly transports guests to Magic Kingdom Park and Epcot.  Some resort hotels also offer water transportation, and guests of all Walt Disney World Resort Hotels will have access to bus service.  Later this year, guests will have yet another transportation option with the opening of the Disney Skyliner.

    When planning to travel from place to place at the Walt Disney World Resort, it is always best to give yourself at least an hour to arrive.  While your travel time is often much quicker than this, factors such as crowd levels and traffic can affect travel time, so it is best to allow for plenty of time to arrive at your destination.

    Another option that you may want to look into is the Minnie Van Service which you can request using the Lyft app on your phone.  While there is a fee to use the Minnie Van Service, it is often the quickest way to travel around the Walt Disney World Resort.  Plus, those red and white polka dot cars are adorable!

    If you would like to let us know which Walt Disney World Resort Hotel you are staying at so that we can give you a better idea of your best transportation options, please stop by and visit us again.  Have a magical day!
