Hello everyone! It’s me here with another Disney related post. I have been loving writing these posts and sharing my love of Disney with all of you, so today I wanted to share some tips I have regarding Disney Transportation. Whether you’re brand new at traveling to Disney, or a every year visitor, I feel like we all have our preferred ways of transportation. Here is how I rank Disney’s transportation.
(1) Rental Car
I believe rental car’s are the BEST way you can get around Disney in my experience. Let’s go through the pro’s and con’s of getting a rental car
- Don’t have to share with others – I love having my own rental car for the simple fact I don’t have to share it with a bunch of other random people. Like a bus.. on a bus obviously you have to share with others. In your own rental car, you don’t have that problem what so ever.
- More space – Sometimes those monorails and buses can be jam packed and super uncomfortable. In your own rental car, you have enough space for yourself and the rest of your family.
- They can be pricey – If you’re staying on Disney Property, a rental car can be a pretty big expense on top of your already pretty pricey vacation stay. If you’re trying to go to Disney on a budget, between paying for the rental car and the parking at each park, you can run up a pretty large bill.
- Very quick – This is not one of those slow ski slope rides. The new Disney Skyliner is pretty quick and definitely great if you’re looking to get somewhere in a hurry seeing as it never stops unless for handicap boarding.
- Beautiful scenery – There are some pretty great views you can get from these skyliners. Some views you wouldn’t be able to see unless you took the skyliner and the skyliner only.
- Relaxing – When I went on these I really thought that it would be rocky and a tense ride, but it’s actually really smooth! It definitely relaxed me pretty well.
- Doesn’t go to every park – It doesn’t reach Magic Kingdom or Animal Kingdom, and it doesn’t reach all of the hotels. Some hotels like the Contemporary, the Grand Floridian and the Polynesian, have better ways of transportation anyways.
- Is it totally trustworthy? – I think so, but a lot of people don’t trust it yet since it’s so new.
- Fear of heights – If you have a fear of heights this is definitely not for you.
Also known as ‘Minnie Vans’.
- Cheaper alternative to rental car
- Drops you off right at the front entrance to the parks
- You may have to wait about 5-10 mins for these.
- You may get a horrible driver
- Not many forms of transportation like it
- Nice if you’re staying at: Polynesian, Grand Floridian and Contemporary resorts
- Doesn’t reach all 4 parks
- Getting to be too old
- Can take a long time to arrive
- Very jam packed
(5) Disney Buses
- Available at every resort/park
- Long wait times
- Doesn’t fit too many people
- Can be a rough ride
- May take several stops until your destination is reached
