    What other transportation options are there on Disney property aside from boats, monorail, shuttle buses and trains?

    Welcome, Angela!

    The Walt Disney World Resort offers transportation options galore! My family and I usually fly in and take the Magical Express from the Orlando International Airport to our Disney Resort. Then, as you mentioned, there are boats, monorails and buses to take us anywhere else we'd like to visit, such as the parks and even other resorts. In Magic Kingdom, the Walt Disney World Railroad is not only a means of transportation from one part of the park to another, but an attraction in itself. Honestly, my kids love riding it all the way around the loop and getting off where we got on! If you've never taken a ride on it before, you absolutely must once it's back up from refurbishment!

    Disney also offers Minnie Van service. Set up through Lyft, you can request a Minnie Van to take your family anywhere on Disney property. We've used this option many times since it first started and find it super convenient even though it does carry an additional cost. When we don't want to wait around for the bus, or we have limited time to get to a reservation, the Minnie Vans make for easy, quick, private transportation. Plus, they're just fun! We get a picture by our Minnie Van each time because they are just so darn cute with those polka dots!

    Guests are also welcome to use outside transportation like Lyft without a Minnie Van, Uber, or taxis to get around property, and I find that the drivers of these other options tend to know the area pretty well too. So, you certainly have a plethora of options to get from one place to another and back if you're visiting the Walt Disney World Resort without a car, Angela!

    Have fun planning!
