    Hi, we are planning to come to Disney but are not staying at a Disney hotel. Can we use the Disney transportation and buses with our magic tickets?

    Hi Megan, welcome to planDisney!

    Aladdin has a magic carpet and Peter Pan has pixie dust. Magical transportation options open to all Guests visiting Walt Disney World Resort include buses, water taxis, monorails, and the Disney Skyliner. No Disney Resorts Collection hotel reservation or ticket is required to enjoy these complimentary modes of transport.

    My recommendation? Hop on the Resort Monorail at Magic Kingdom Park and shop at Disney's Contemporary Resort. Take the Disney Skyliner from Disney's Hollywood Studios to Disney's Riviera Resort for dinner with a view. Catch a bus from Disney's Animal Kingdom Park to EPCOT after 1:30 p.m. to take full advantage of the Park Hopping benefits included with your Magic Tickets, which begin at 2:00 p.m. The magical possibilities provided by Disney's transportation network are endless and I know you'll end up right where you belong.

    As a general rule, transportation operates 45 minutes before park opening until 1 hour after park closing. If you're ever unsure how to get from Point A to Point B, check out the location services feature in the My Disney Experience mobile app (location icon on the bottom of the home screen --> select "Transportation" from the middle dropdown menu). You can filter by Location or Transportation Type, or click a desired transportation departure/arrival area on the map and "Get Directions."

    Aladdin has a magic lamp and Peter Pan has Tinker Bell. You have planDisney, Megan, and we hope to see you again real soon!

    Choose magic,
