    Ok. If we decided to stay at a hotel by downtown Disney, are there buses we can catch to get to the parks?

    Hey Howdy Hey Regina,

    Thanks for stopping back to see us at planDisney. It looks like you are in serious planning mode for your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation. One of the hardest decisions can be where to stay during your magical adventure. 

    While I always prefer to stay at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, there are a number of wonderful hotel options located near Disney Springs. This includes 7 Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels that provides Guests a number of the same perks provided to Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. While the Resort Transportation buses do not stop at these specific hotels, each resort provides their own transportation option to the theme parks. You will want to be sure to check the schedule for your specific hotel as the buses may only operate during certain hours. Depending on which hotel you select, another option throughout the day is to use the Disney buses that run from the Disney Resorts to Disney Springs and then walk over to your specific hotel. Most hotels are just a short walk over a pedestrian bridge that can be found near Once Upon a Toy. As a reminder, buses do not begin running to Disney Springs until approximately 30 minutes before it opens, but you could use this option later in the day if you miss your resort bus or want to spend a little time enjoying Disney Springs.  

    Bonus suggestion: we have cashed in our Hilton points and stayed at Hilton Lake Buena Vista Palace a few times. It is a great resort with a really fun pool area but the best part it is just over the walkway from Disney Springs. I hope this helps with your plans. If I can answer any additional questions, please stop back and see me.

    Hope to see ya real soon,
