Travel times from resorts

Is there any site or link that lists approximate travel times from resorts to the parks and DD. I am particularly interested in POFQ.

Yes, I believe it is on the Our Laughing Place site. Just Google WDW transportation calculator. It will show different ways to get from point A to point B with approximate times. Hope that helps.

That's a great site. I wish I had seen it before we went on our trip.

I hate to break it to you all, but that site is woefully out of date and not very accurate.

It is well known on the Transportation Board to take the OLP time estimates with a grain of salt.

I was wondering. It didn't even list the boat as an option from POR.

We've used the iPhone app from OLP for years. It will give you an estimate. Of course, some say that it isn't accurate but we always leave plenty of time for transportation.

The problem is, some of the estimates don't make any sense. No way does it take the same time to get from POR to Epcot that it does to get from POR to the Animal Kingdom. No way! And it is certainly not quicker to get to MK than Epcot from POR, but that is what it tells you.

Leaving plenty of time for transportation is great advice. But I would never suggest someone look at OLP and use those travel times as a guide. They are way off!

Use OLP traval wizard as a 'suggestion', but don't make any firm plans on it based on it's info.
For instance...when I plug in AK to Fantasia Gardens, one of the suggestions is bus from AK to Fantasia Gardens!!! Um, no bus there. But it does list, further down, a bus to the Dolphin and walk over to FG!!
Or bus to DHS and boat to S/D and walk over!!!
Seriously??? Bus from AK to S/D, and then walk over...that's pretty much the best way to go..if using Disney transportation!!!

DTD to MK??? Easiest method is still bus to CR and then walk over to MK. That's not even listed!!!
