    We will be staying at a non-Disney hotel in Disney Springs, can we still use the Disney Water taxi's to get to the parks?

    Hi, Amy!

    You are in for a real treat staying near Disney Springs. The transformation of this area has been incredible. With so many shops, restaurants, and activities, you could make an entire vacation just visiting Disney Springs!

    All guests to Walt Disney World are welcome to use the transportation system of boats, monorails, or buses even if not staying at Walt Disney World resort hotel. However, remember that transportation from Disney Springs does not offer service directly to any of the theme parks. You would need to transfer at a resort.

    There is boat service in Disney Springs, but these simply shuttle guests to surrounding resorts and back; They do not go to any theme park. Boat service is available to Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios from the Boardwalk area hotels. Boat service is available to the Magic Kingdom at the monorail resorts or Wilderness Lodge.

    When staying off property, the best option is to use that hotel's bus service or take your own vehicle. There is a daily parking fee at the theme parks if you take your car, but it might be worth it for the time savings. It is up to you! Chat with your hotel about their transportation schedule to see what will work the best for your family.

    Happy travels!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
