    Hi! We are staying at the Dolphin for an upcoming trip. Love the location and walking distance to EPCOT and Hollywood Studios--but is there Disney bus transportation to the other theme parks and Disney Springs? thanks!

    Hi Katie! The Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort is a great hotel for your vacation! My family stayed there during a Christmastime visit a few years ago. We really enjoyed it! The price was perfect for our budget while still staying at a very nice resort! Great choice! 

    Complimentary transportation to the Disney Parks and Disney Springs is included with your resort stay! You are correct that both EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios are within walking distance. Water transportation is also provided to those locations. When traveling to Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Disney Springs, you can board a bus at the resort and go directly to those destinations!

    When traveling from the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort to Magic Kingdom Park, you will board a bus at the resort hotel. You will then be driven to the Ticket and Transportation Center (TTC). From the TTC, you can board either a boat or the Monorail. Both will take you to Magic Kingdom Park. 

    A nice perk of the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort is that all the transportation is complimentary! Disney’s Boardwalk is also within walking distance from the resort hotel. When we arrived on Christmas night a few years back, we were so hungry! We went right to Pizza Window at Disney’s Boardwalk and had a late-night Christmas pizza dinner! It’s a memory we still love to this day!

    Dreams do come true!
