    Hey, Robert!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Your trip across the pond to the place "where dreams come true" will be a wonderful experience for your first Walt Disney World Resort vacation. The kids are going to love it.

    Easy accessibility is a relative term. For me, the ability to get to the Walt Disney World theme parks without much fanfare is paramount. You have several options but your best option, in my opinion, is to rent a car even is current prices (subject to change) for parking is $20.00/day. It will be the least expensive if you consider transportation time and convenience.

    If renting a car is not a possibility, then you may choose one or all of the following:

    1.Check to see if your hotel, resort, or rental property offers transportation service to Walt Disney World theme parks. They may take you to the Transportation and Ticket Center (parking lot for Magic Kingdom Park). From there you may catch a bus to any Walt Disney World theme park.

    2. Uber or taxi service will offer you comfortable transportation directly to the theme parks. You should expect to spend approximately $20-30 per trip each way.

    3. I Ride Trolley Service has stops along International Drive. Take the trolley to Sea World, then transfer to a Lynx bus ( destined for the Transportation and Ticket Center. Trolley fares are inexpensive but you sacrifice valuable theme park time with the different transfers.

    With your excited kids, my suggestion is to travel the least amount of time to enjoy the most theme park time.

    Disney Dad Tip: Traveling with little ones is very rewarding when planned just right. Please look at this information on how to plan your day at the theme parks.

    Robert, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
