    Hi, how often are the shuttles to and from the parks when staying at the swan and dolphin / swan reserve as mears transport? I would especially like to know when going to the magic kingdom and animal kingdom park as not walkable.

    Hello there, Michael!

    I love staying at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels. I’ve never stayed at the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve, but I’ve heard wonderful things. You can’t beat the location along Crescent Lake and next to Disney’s BoardWalk. Did you know that you could walk from the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels to EPCOT’s International Gateway or Disney’s Hollywood Studios entrance? It’s only about a 10-minute walk. 

    Now, shuttle buses arrive at the main entrance of the Walt Disney World Swan, Dolphin, and Swan Reserve Hotels approximately every 20-25 minutes to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Magic Kingdom Park, and Disney Springs

    I know you mentioned the Mears Connect transport. This shuttle goes to and from the Orlando International Airport to your Walt Disney World hotel and leaves the airport about every 20 to 30 minutes. Of course, the time to your destination will depend on which Resort you stay at. 

    I love that these Hotels can take advantage of the 30-minute early entry into Walt Disney World theme parks every day. You can ride so many attractions with these extra 30 minutes. 

    May the magic be with you!
