    Do any of the parks have buses (or boats) straight to Downtown Disney? If not, which is the easiest way to get there from each park? Thank you!! Love this panel :)

    Hi Stephanie,

    Thank you for the kind words! We love helping guests plan their Walt Disney World vacations.

    Historically, Saratoga Springs Resort was always the best "stop" to get from the Parks to Downtown Disney, given it is in walking distance of Downtown Disney. With the new construction of Disney Springs, however, the walkways are currently under construction. I hear the walking bridge is almost complete, so depending on when you're traveling, Saratoga Springs would be your best route between the parks and Downtown Disney. There is also a boat from Saratoga to DD, which to my knowledge, is still open. 

    Your alternate route outside of Saratoga Springs is to first travel by bus to Disney's Pop Century and then by bus to Downtown Disney. You will not find direct transportation from the theme parks to Downtown Disney.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions, Stephanie. You can always check back with me prior to your arrival and I can provide you the most recently reported information about the construction near Saratoga Springs.

    Enjoy your vacation!
