    I am staying at a Disney Springs resort in April 2021, I know right now the hotel buses to the parks are not operational. If we walk to Disney Springs can we take a bus to the parks? Will buses be operational early so we can get there before park opening?

    Hi there, Mia! Thanks so much for stopping by with this great question. 

    Mia, my family stayed at a hotel in the Disney Springs area last year. I was shocked at how convenient it was to access the theme parks, not to mention we were within walking distance to all of the amazing dining and shopping options at Disney Springs like The BOATHOUSE and the World of Disney Store.

    Mia, busses do not run directly to the theme parks from Disney Springs. In order to get to a theme park from Disney Springs using Walt Disney World Resort transportation, you would need to take a bus to a Walt Disney World Resort hotel and then take to a bus, monorail, or Disney Skyliner to the theme park. 

    Additionally, busses from Disney Springs to the hotels do not start running until late morning or mid-afternoon, making it impossible to get to the theme parks in time for an opening. So I would suggest that you rent a car for this trip, or take advantage of a taxi or ride-share service. 

    I hope that this answered your question, Mia. Please come back here to planDisney if we can help answer any other questions for your April vacation. 

    Wishing you the most magical vacation!
