Always allow 1 hour and 1/2 to get to your ADR reservation.

For a standard minimum...there are some transfers that might take longer.

1. Polynesian
2. Grand Floridian
3. Contemporary

Thanks!

buses do not go from resort to resort or from theme park to theme park.

In essence you will need to take a mode of transportation to the theme park closest to you destination and then catch a bus/monorail/boat to where you want to go.

For example, to get to Poly, take your bus to MK then either take another bus to get to Poly or you could go by boat (take the boat).

I would plan plenty of time since you don't know when exactly you will get picked up at your transfer point.

OR you can pay for a taxi to take you.

Quite honestly for resort to resort transportation I usually take a cab unless I'm not concerned about time. Otherwise there is too much time wasted in transit.

Oh, there is transportation directly from theme park to theme park although for Magic Kingdom these trips end at the front of the parking lot (Ticket & Transportation Center). Add a leg via monorail or ferry to get to MK proper.

Ok...looks like getting a taxi will be the best bet but can someone tell me how to get to the resorts if we decide not to take the taxi? TIA!

1. Bus to MK, boat or monorail over to the Polynesian
2. Bus to MK, boat or monorail over to the GF
3. Bus to MK, walk to CR...get off the bus, follow the crowd until you get to the end of the bus stop area. Then, go right and follow the sidewalk that runs beneath the monorail line, cross the street (using the pedestrian light), and the CR is there..takes under 10 mins.
Leave about an hour for each trip. I say either boat or monorail, but the boat is faster if it's there. And in most cases, the boat is going to be faster to the GF since it is the first stop before going to the Polynesian.
Reverse all that to return to the AoA.

Let me correct a few errors here. There is most certainly theme park to theme park transportation. It is very well marked at each park. At the MK you have to go to the TTC and transfer to a bus to AK and to DHS. Monorail to Epcot....for instance.
In addition, there are no buses, at normal park times, running between MK and the Polynesian or GF...you take either the monorail or a boat.

Very simple.... From your resort bus to nearest park and then get in the bus or boat line for the resort you're interested in...

Say Poly, GF or CR..... Bus to MK then take boat or monorail to any of the 3 resorts on the monorail/boat route.....
