    We will be staying at Saratoga Springs in July for a dance competition that will be held at the Swan and Dolphin. What transportation options are available outside of driving your own car?

    Hi, Jennifer, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you so much for stopping by with your question. I always enjoy the chance to chat with another Sunshine Stater!

    Sounds like you have a jam-packed visit to the Walt Disney World Resort in store! I imagine you'll be traveling between your Resort hotel and the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels quite often during your stay. And of course, you'll want to check out the Theme Parks and Disney Springs while you're there, too! So let's start there - you're in a perfect spot to explore Disney Springs from Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. Depending on your room location, you can either hop aboard a boat or take a short walk to all the shopping and dining of Disney Springs. To get to the Theme Parks, Disney bus transportation is your magic carpet to all the fun. You'll find several bus stops around the Resort hotel grounds.

    When it comes time to hit the road for the competition, you have a couple of options. Disney bus transportation doesn't provide direct service between Resort hotels, so you can't take a bus straight to the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin. However, you could hop over to Disney Springs and then take a bus to the Swan and Dolphin from there. Another option that may work better for you if time is a concern is Disney's Minnie Van Service. The Minnie Vans operate through the Lyft app and can provide direct service pretty much anywhere on Walt Disney World property. There's an extra charge for this service, but I think adding a few Minnie Van trips into the mix along with bus service will help you get where you need to go when the competition calls.

    Jennifer, I hope your dance contestant has all the right moves and waltzes away with a winning performance! Please stop by and see us again if you have any more questions. Helping Guests is our jam!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
