Official 'how to get from point A to point B while at WDW' thread.

Okay guys...lets see if we can organize any and all quetions pertaining to transportation within WDW here. It may help others to know exactly where to go to get the best info.
I expect to see lots of good info here everyone. But, not looking for debates on rental car vs buses. Basically how to get around using Disney transportation only.
Thanks..and have at it!!!

I'll start with this one.....(thanks MagicBus)

Bus & Monorail Park to Park Transportation

From MK to:
AK, bus at MK bus stop
DHS, bus at MK bus stop
Epcot, Monorail from TTC

From Epcot to:
AK, bus stop #5
DHS, bus stop #9
TTC/MK, Monorail

From DHS to:
AK, bus stop #7
Epcot, bus stop #7 in the Charter lot
MK, bus stop #? (maybe 11)

From AK to:
DHS, bus stop #15
Epcot bus stop #13
MK, bus stop #?(maybe 14)

There is also boat transportation between DHS & Epcot.

Okay, since I'm the first one here, I might as well just ask the question I'm sure is on everyone's mind...

What is the best way to get to O'hana's for breakfast from Port Orleans Riverside? I have a 7:30 am ressie, and I'm not scared to get up early

Hi. I'm new here, although I have been lurking for a while.

My family is going in late January. We're going to be at the MK for the day and then go to Tutto Italia for dinner. Should we take the monorail over to Epcot and walk through FW to the WS or should we take a bus from MK to the Beach Club and then take a bus or walk?

The benefit to the Monorail I can see is that we will have at least one stroller and you can roll those things right on the monorail as opposed to folding them up like you do on the bus.

Be at the bus stop by 6:30
Board the MK-bound bus
Once at the park, walk past the park entrance toward the monorail
Board the resorts monorail
Exit at the Polynesian
Enter the resort, head to your left, go past the coffee counter and Kona Cafe, check in at 'Ohana
Or take a taxi.

Advantage to Plan B: simplification. Yes, you'll have to fold the stroller - but you will board one mode of transportation, the bus. With the monorail, you need to board one monorail (or the ferry) from the park to the TTC, then transfer at the TTC, then board another monorail, then still get all the way through the park. Using the bus alternative, you fold the stroller once, board the bus, exit at BC, walk from there to the IG to your dinner.

Good point. And one less thing to "wait" for. I think we'll go with option B. :lol Thanks.

ETA: I meant take a boat (not bus) from Beach Club to the WS. I know it's close but I don't know if my Mom would be up for walking. It hardly seems worth waiting for a boat, though, so if we have enough time we could just slowly walk.

It really is only a 5 minute walk from BC to Epcot - up a slight incline and then back down - it's very close. I'm sure it's closer than walking from the Epcot IG entrance to Italy, and you're going to have to do that regardless since the boat only drops you off at the IG entrance way.

[QUOTE=nytimez;38537247]There's also axxxxxx
That transportation calculator is less then worthless.

Look up the suggested routes from the Contemporary to DTD. Which one would you suggest?

Now look up CSR to Boardwalk Inn. The direct bus from CSR to Boardwalk was discontinued more then 10 years ago. EPCOT requires park admission and a long walk through EPCOT. The correct transfer point, DHS isn't listed.

There are other examples.

Only suggest the wizard to people you don't like. Haven't you read previous posts regarding the wizard?

edit to add several of us have brought sent OLP messages regarding the erros. We were thanked for bringing the errors to their attention. Were told they'd be making corrections. The site shows Bay Lake Towers. It updated the name of the Studios to DHS. The wizard has the appearance of being updated. I have to assume the person responsible for the wizard is a sadistic person who takes delight in giving wrong information.

No, I'm afraid haven't read every post on the Dis! If it doesn't work for you, fine -- but no need to be condescending about it.
