    We will be staying at the Swan. How long will it take us to get from the Swan to Chef Mickey's, Crystal Palace, and Tusker's House if we utilize the complimentary Disney transportation? How long would it take if we used a taxi? Thanks!

    Hello there Vincent!

    I was able to ride from EPCOT over to Disney's Hollywood Studios on a boat and I got to see the magnificent architecture of the Swan up close. That is a very impressive looking resort!

    Disney's transportation system is first class! All of the buses are run with precision and make getting to your destinations rather easy. From the Swan you can take direct buses to Disney's Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom so getting to the restaurants is just a matter of going through the gate and into the park. Chef Mickey's on the other hand takes a little bit of maneuvering. From the Swan you can take a bus to Magic Kingdom and then transfer to a Monorail or walk to the Contemporary resort.

    While the buses are very efficient, the distance, traffic, schedule, and any other problem you may face on the road makes it so that you should try to leave for your destination at LEAST and hour and a half prior to your reservation. There are taxis at all areas of the park and they definitely are the quickest option to get where you need to be quickly but they tend to be a little pricey and I would rather spend that money on dinner... I hope this information helps you with your planning and if you have more questions, please ask away, we are always here to help! Have a Magical Time at the Walt Disney World Resort! Thanks so much for asking the Moms Panel!
