    If I am staying outside of AOA resorts, can I still take the shuttle to the theme parks?

    Hi Victor. Welcome to planDisney. I'm so happy to answer your question today!

    One of my favorite parts of the Walt Disney World Resort is all of the different transportation options. There is the Walt Disney World Bus Service, Water Transportation, Monorail, the Disney Skyliner, and even the Minnie Van Service! These are attractions and experiences in and of themselves and bring some exciting kinetic energy to the resort!

    The Walt Disney World Bus Service to the theme parks from a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel is available exclusively to Guests staying at these hotels, so you will be unable to use this service if you are staying at different accommodations.  However, if you have theme park tickets with the Park Hopper Option and want to hop from one park to another, you are more than welcome to use the bus service to get you to another park. You can also use the monorail, water transportation, and the Disney Skyliner for the same purpose. Furthermore, you can hire a Minnie Van through the Lyft app to help you get to your destination within the resort.

    These transportation options are not the only cool vehicles at the resort. Many different attractions have their own unique and innovative ride vehicles. Take the brand-new TRON Lightcycle / Run presented by Enterprise at Magic Kingdom Park for example. You'll travel through the digital frontier, the Grid, on a lightcycle! And how about the classic Doom Buggies at the Haunted Mansion? Or the swaying mine carts of Seven Dwarfs Mine Train? And that's just the tip of the iceberg in Magic Kingdom Park alone. I didn't even get to the other three theme parks!

    Victor, I hope you have a wonderful visit to the resort. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to reach out. We love to help Guests make magic!
