    hi can we get from magic kingdom to ESPN .using Disney transportation.without going to a hotel? thank you

    Hi, Heather! Thanks so much for stopping by with your question. I stayed at Disney's Pop Century this past week and decided on a whim to hop on the bus to ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. I was absolutely amazed by it! On my quick tour of the complex, I spoke with a Cast Member about transportation options for Guests headed that way. 

    Heather, there are currently no buses that travel to ESPN Wide World of Sports from any of the parks or from Disney Springs. On the day you mentioned, you will need to first head to one of the Resort hotels that do offer bus service to the complex: Disney's Pop Century Resort, Disney's All-Star Sports Resort, and Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. You should be able to catch a bus at one of these Resort hotels each Thursday through Monday, 5:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m., with an arrival at the sports complex approximately on the hour and half-hour. There are occasionally special events going on at the complex outside of this schedule. In these cases, buses will run to/from those three Resort hotels from one hour prior to opening until 11:00 p.m. or later, if the complex does stay open later for the event. I recommend you check with Concierge at your Disney Resort hotel during your visit to see if there are indeed special events going on so you can be more familiar with the transportation schedule.

    If you do not want to travel to one of the noted Resort hotels, Heather, there are two other options I utilize when I need to save time. You can walk or ride the monorail over to Disney's Contemporary Resort and either hail a cab or Uber to ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. In my experience, the cab fare between any points within Walt Disney World Resort is usually less than $20.

    I hope this information helps you plan your day a little easier, Heather. Please let us know if we can help you with any other questions you may have.
