    Getting from the marketplace to the magic kingdom

    Hi Michele, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Disney Springs is one of my favorite places to spend time at the Walt Disney World Resort, especially if I'm attending a special ticketed event at Magic Kingdom Park later in that day, like Disney After Hours or Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

    In my opinion, the best and fastest transportation option to get from Disney Springs to Magic Kingdom Park is a Minnie Van that you can request by opening the Lyft App and selecting pick up and drop off locations inside the Walt Disney World Resort.

    If you'd rather use the complimentary transportation services provided to Guests staying at the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, your best option is to take a bus to Disney's Contemporary Resort and then walk to Magic Kingdom Park. Consider at least 40 minutes to that trip, as you may have to wait a little for the bus at Disney Springs. 

    To help you choose the best transportation option for you, the Walt Disney World Resort has recently rolled out a new feature on the My Disney Experience mobile app that enables Guests to check up-to-the-minute estimates for buses departing and arrival times. 

    If you need any more help or advice, stop by. The Disney Parks Moms Panel is here to help. 

    May the magic be with you!
