    Hello Mom's Panel! We will be staying at the Contemporary in October and plan on traveling to the parks by bus. Are there certain buses that go to certain parks? How does the system work exactly?

    Hi Hillary!

    You're going to absolutely LOVE Disney's Contemporary Resort!
    It's in one of the best possible locations on the property and has so many extra amenities available on site.

    You have several different complimentary Disney Transportation options available to you from this fabulous resort. Outside the Main Lobby on the ground floor, you'll exit to the right out to the Bus Depot area. Each bus that pulls in will display the location they are headed to on their digital screen. From your resort, you'll see buses arrive regularly for Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom,  Downtown Disney and the Disney Water Parks.

    To get to Epcot, you'll proceed through the Contemporary Lobby up to the monorail platform. Board the monorail and exit at the next stop - the Transportation and Ticket Center. Here you'll transfer over to the Epcot Monorail and be on your way directly to the park gates in no time!

    Magic Kingdom is about a 10 minute walk down the pathway past the bus depot. If you prefer not to walk to Magic Kingdom, the same monorail from the Contemporary will take you around the Seven Seas Lagoon and over to the Magic Kingdom gate. The Magic Kingdom Monorail will stop at the Transportation and Ticket Center, Disney's Polynesian Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and then Magic Kingdom.

    You'll return to Disney's Contemporary Resort via these same methods at the end of your fun-filled days!

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel with your great question Hillary!
    I hope you'll write me back again soon.

    Wishing you a simply Magical time on your Walt Disney World vacation!
