    What perks are there , other than the magical express when using disney travel?

    Hi, Douglas!

    The best part about using Disney transportation exclusively is that you do not have to drive! Just hop on a bus/boat/monorail and let someone else chauffer you around Disney property. Here are some highlights of NOT having a car:

    -No asking for directions or using your GPS
    -No getting gas in the car or paying fees on the toll roads
    -You won't lose your car in the sprawling parking lots (OK, we lost our car once - but that is a another story!)
    -No rental car costs
    -You get to experience the fun of all the different modes of transportation at WDW.
    -**Bonus: you will learn some Spanish on the monorail: "por favor mantengase alejado de las puertas!"  Believe me, that will be MUCH funnier after you have ridden the monorail for the tenth time!

    So now the downside of not having a car...Waiting! Be prepared to wait up to 20 minutes for a bus to pick you up. Honestly, the wait is usually much less, but no guarantees. Most bus stops now have a "wait time" board so you know how long your estimated time is.

    Good luck deciding, but if you want  a relaxing vacation, just sit back and let the wonderful cast members take care of you!
