Disney Transport


Disney Transport
Bus at Walt Disney World Resort

Disney Transport is the privately operated transportation system at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Most movements are made using buses that run along the resort's public roads maintained by the Reedy Creek Improvement District and private roads. Other transportation is provided by the Walt Disney World Monorail System and ferry.

Bus Services

Except where monorail or ferry service exists or walking is practical, direct bus service is provided from every hotel to every attraction, and between attractions. This contrasts with most public transportation systems, which use a hub-and-spoke system. Disney's approach avoids transfers for most movements, but leads to longer wait times. However, Disney tries to keep wait times below twenty minutes. Direct transportation between hotels is not provided, unless they happen to be on the same bus route.

No service is provided between Downtown Disney and other attractions, except Typhoon Lagoon which lies on the same route. When this was offered, guests parked for free at Downtown Disney to avoid paying for parking at the theme parks.

Disney Transport buses also bring cast members, around the resort; these buses are marked 'Special' or 'VIP Cast Member'.

Disney Transport operates a fleet of TMC RTS, Nova Bus LFS, and Gillig Advantage bus models. They have approximately 300 buses in their fleet.[citation needed]

Watercraft Services

The resort also maintains a fleet of watercraft providing additional access between various Disney resorts and parks. While some route duplication does take place, the watercraft provide an alternative way to travel from one location to another. The most notable of these boats are the large ferries that traverse the Seven Seas Lagoon between the Transportation and Ticket Center and the Magic Kingdom. However, there are several other routes, including:

Other Services

At the resort's theme parks, Disney operates parking lot trams within their expansive parking lots. In the Magic Kingdom, the Walt Disney World Railroad encircles the park and various vehicles operate along Main Street, U.S.A. In Disney's Animal Kingdom, the Wildlife Express Train operates between Africa and Rafiki's Planet Watch.
