    We are staying at Shades of Green, and are only visiting Magic Kingdom for a day. We think that is the most our 2 year old and 5 month old can handle. If we take the bus from Shades of Green to the park, do we need to get on the monorail? Also, are there a


    Thanks for visiting the Mom's Panel.

    The buses from Shades of Green run on the hour and half-hour and are very prompt. The buses that go to Magic Kingdom actually let you off at the Ticket & Transportation Center, not the bus terminal outside of the gates of the park, and from the TTC, you can either get on the monorail or the ferry for the final leg to the Magic Kingdom.

    You may find that it is easier to ask for the resort's "Shady Shuttle" to take you down to the front of the resort and walk over to the Polynesian. From there, it's a 5-minute stroll through the resort and up its lobby stairs to get on the monorail to the Magic Kingdom.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
