    Do you have to be staying at a hotel with water transportation to be able to ride the ferry?

    Hello Maria! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I have always said that in terms of convenience and efficiency, there is no better way to get around Walt Disney World Resort property than using the Complimentary Resort Transportation.

    Whether traveling through the "highway-in-the-sky" on the monorail, taking a boat to Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort for Advanced Dining Reservations at Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, or taking advantage of the amazing dropoff locations for bus transportation, it is the most magical way to get from one point to another.

    In terms of using Disney Resort Transportation, it is complimentary for all Guests regardless of whether they stay at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel or not. Using the ferry from the Ticket and Transportation Center to get to the Main Gates of Magic Kingdom is complimentary as well.

    Once you are on Walt Disney World Resort property, all transportation options are available to you. the only exception is Disney's Magical Express which operates as a shuttle for Guests staying at a Disney Resort Hotel to Orlando International Airport. 

    Have a Magical Trip!
