    We have an upcoming trip in Jan 2020. We are staying at the CBR and have a breakfast reservation at the Grand Floridian at 8:30am. What is the best mode of transportation to get from CBR to GF? Will the new gondola system help at all? Is the bus best? Thx!

    Hi D Leah,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited to hEAR you will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort in January!

    You are going to love the relaxing atmosphere and colorful, island-themed villages at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort! Being able to easily travel to Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios on the Disney Skyliner will be such an added treat. Unfortunately, the gondola system does not connect your Disney Resort hotel to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, which is located in the Magic Kingdom Resort Area. 

    From Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, your quickest and most efficient route of transportation to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa will be by car. If you don't mind the added cost, traveling between the two resorts by Minnie Van Service, taxi or another ride-sharing service will be your best mode of transportation if you don't have access to a car during your trip. If you prefer to utilize Disney's complimentary transportation, you can catch a bus bound for Magic Kingdom Park and then transfer to the Resort Monorail or motor launch (water taxi) bound for Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. I would allow 60 minutes for your travel time if using Disney's complimentary transportation since you will have to make the transfer at Magic Kingdom Park.

    I hope this information is helpful! Please stop by again with any new questions. We would love to assist you further in planning a magical trip!

    Happy Travels,
