Exciting Transportation Coming to Disney

One of the big perks of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel is the complimentary Disney World transportation. Disney provides buses, boats, a Disney monorail, and the Disney skyliner throughout the Walt Disney World Resort Property. This makes getting around on a vacation easy and magical. A mode of Disney transportation is coming back for guests. This will make getting around Walt Disney World more convenient for guests.

Transportation Coming

If you have visited Walt Disney World in the past few years, you might have noticed that some transportation needed to be included. Guests wishing to sail on Bay Lake between Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Wilderness Resort, and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground couldn’t do so.

Instead of having a quick boat ride between these Disney resorts, guests would need to head to Magic Kingdom and then take Disney transportation (monorail, walk, or boat) to the other Disney resort they wished to visit. This made visiting between these resorts complicated and time-consuming.

Although guests could also order a Minnie Van or a ride-share, those options are not complimentary.

Disney announced that guests will once again be able to set sail between these resorts starting on October 1, 2023.

Disney has stated that the watercraft will run afternoon and evening voyages, making it easier for guests to enjoy meals at these three resorts.

We are grateful that this transportation is coming back. Moving between these three Bay Lake-focused resorts quickly is a huge perk to staying at them during a Walt Disney World vacation. The quick boat ride opens up even more entertainment and dining options.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
