    Gregg from DC Asked

    Is scheduled ground transportation from the Kissimmee or Orlando Amtrak stations to Lake Buena Vista available?

    Greetings, Gregg! Welcome aboard planDisney. Thanks for stopping by en route to your destination, the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Did you know that Walt Disney had an interest in trains? The Carolwood Pacific Railroad, a 1/8 scale steam-powered locomotive encircled his property. When it's operational again, I can't wait to kick back on the Walt Disney World Railroad in the Magic Kingdom Park and think about Walt Disney's incredible legacy. 

    Both the Orlando and Kissimmee Amtrak stations have a Hertz rental car company onsite, so one option would be to reserve a car in advance. If you will be a guest at a hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection and do not need a vehicle for the duration of your stay, you could book a one-way rental, return the car to Orlando International Airport, and take Disney's Magical Express® to your resort. 

    If you are more keen to sit back and let someone else do the driving, rideshare services like Uber and Lyft and taxis are available at both Amtrak stations and can be reserved online in advance of your planned arrival. 

    I hope this is helpful as you prepare to go full steam ahead to your magical vacation! If you're looking for something to pass the time on the rails, check out the Disney Parks Blog and follow planDisney on social media. There's so much excitement happening in the Walt Disney World Resort this year, and you won't want to miss any of it. Thanks again for stopping by, Gregg, and we'll see ya real soon!
