    We're staying at the Dolphin and going to Magic Kingdom. Is there an option besides the bus to get the park? Can the ferry take us to the monorail station?

    Hello Michelle! A visit to Magic Kingdom Park sounds like a great Disney Day! From Pirates of the Caribbean to Space Mountain, and the Haunted Mansion to Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, you are going to have such a magical time!

    The water taxis at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel take Guests to EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. But, they will not be able to sail you away to Magic Kingdom Park.

    The easiest and most convenient way to travel from the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel is to take the bus from the hotel to the Ticket and Transportation Center. From there you would board either the Monorail or the ferry to whisk you away to a wonderful day at Magic Kingdom Park!

    If you need an alternate form of transportation, you could hire a private vehicle to pick you up at the hotel and take you to Magic Kingdom Park. You can use common ride-share apps to request a ride via the app.

    If you decide that you’d rather have your own vehicle (or rental car) the price for parking your vehicle at Magic Kingdom Park is included in the price of your stay at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel! That’s a nice perk!

    Michelle, as a PRO TIP for you, keep in mind that the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel participates in BOTH Early Morning Theme Park Hours and Extended Evening Theme Park Hours! These are great benefits of staying at the hotel! I strongly encourage you to take advantage of that extra time while Magic Kingdom Park is still closed to other Guests!

    Happy Planning!
