Downtown Disney question...

I will be tagging along on my husband's business trip to Orlando. One of the days he will drop me off at Downtown Disney before work. My question is...since I will have no car, can I board the buses and/or boats to visit other resorts during the day?

yes you can!!!

would suggest -- wl, akl, polyn (except a long ride - the bus stops at CR before Polyn and after the gf - before it goes back to dd)

bw, yc, bc - they all have nice lobbies

then (if you have the time) go to values - Pop is definitely on the cute side!

Thanks! We've resort hopped before...but we've always stayed on site. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't breaking any rules by using Disney transportation since we will not be resort guests this time.

no you would be surprised at the people who park at DD then ride the bus to the resorts - then change over to park buses - just to save a few dollars - not understanding that they are wasting the best times to be in the park - by all that bus riding....

We have dinner ressies at some of the resort restaurants after he is done working, but we will drive to those. Sadly there will be no park visits though. On the day hubby drops me off I was just going to shop, roam around, and grab a bite to eat. I wanted to make sure I could get to the Poly to enjoy a Dole Whip!
