    Which resorts are the most convenient to the parks? We have stayed at the Caribbean Beach and had to ride the bus 45 minutes whenever we wanted to go somewhere. We were hoping to eliminate the long bus rides and bus lines!

    Hi Amy,

    The Grand Floridian, Polynesian and Contemporary are closest to the Magic Kingdom. The Yacht and Beach Clubs, Boardwalk Inn and the Swan & Dolphin are the closest to Epcot (via the International Gateway). In addition, they are a boat ride away from Hollywood Studios.

    I must point out though that all Resorts are a bus ride away from some of the Parks. For example, we just returned from staying at the Grand Floridian and had a significant bus ride to the Animal Kingdom Park, Hollywood Studios and Downtown Disney. The sheer size of Disney World makes it necessary to spend some time traveling. To cut down on that, choosing a Deluxe Resort will get you closer to the Magic.

    Hope this helps and have a wonderful vacation,
