    Hi Moms! We are headed back to Disney in October and I was wondering if we could take a Disney bus from Disney Springs straight to Magic Kingdom? We are staying at POR and planning to take the boat to DS, but have FP's at Magic that afternoon. Thanks!

    Hi Suzanne!

    I love your plan to enjoy some morning time at Disney Springs and then head to the parks for some attractions and shows during the afternoon. Taking the boat to Disney springs is also a great way to relax and enjoy that water route.

    Unfortunately, Disney Springs does not offer direct Bus Transportation to any of the Disney parks. But you have a few good options that will be quite easy.

    Your first option is to simply take a taxi or Uber car to the park. It is my least favorite option as it will drop you off across the Seven Seas Lagoon and you will still have to take time to ride the monorail or take the ferry to the park entrance.

    Your next option is to return to Port Orleans via boat and catch the Magic Kingdom bus from there. This will take time and not the best use of your afternoon especially when trying to get to some FastPass reservations.

    My choice for the best option is to take the Contemporary bus from Disney Springs and then simply walk to the entrance of the park. It is a short walk on sidewalks the entire way. This would be the quickest option of the three too. This trip could take you as short as 30 minutes or longer if you have to wait a while for a bus but it is still the way to go.

    Enjoy and don't miss those FastPass reservations!
