    What is the quickest way to get back to the Swan after the Pirates and Pals Fireworks Cruise is over? 1) Walk back to the Magic Kingdom and take the bus, 2) Monorail to TTC then drive back, 3) Monorail to Magic Kingdom then bus back to the Swan, 4) Other?

    Hi Douglas! Figuring out transportation between resorts can be difficult. I can see you have thought about all the different possibilities which is great as you won't be faced with surprises during your vacation.

    If you have your own car you will be able to park at the Contemporary Resort for your Pirates and Pals Fireworks cruise that night. Once the cruise is over you can get out quickly and head back to the Swan resort. If you are planning on spending the day before the cruise in the park then your next best option will be to take a taxi from the Contemporary to the Swan. The parking valet staff can call for a taxi and can request the size you need. Also if you need a car seat many cabs carry those with them and they can request that as well. The cost would be under $20 so it is money well spent to be able to get back to your resort quickly and with little hassle.

    Your third best choice is to walk back to the Magic Kingdom and hop on the Swan bus to return to your resort. Avoid the monorails at that time of night as once the fireworks are over the Disney transportation becomes crowded with long lines. Because of this I hope one of the options mentioned above will work best for you. Enjoy your Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage!
