We've stayed at the Swan a number of times during Halloween season and will be there again this October. I've not seen anything Halloween at the S&D Resorts.

Bus to MK

Hi everyone. I will be staying at the Swan for the first time. Does anyone know what resorts share the Disney bus to the MK? How long will it take to get to MK by bus?

Thanks!

Welcome to the dis, hoglund.

Depending on the time of day and crowds, the Swan can be by itself, share with the Dolphin, or the Dolphin, Yacht and Beach and Boardwalk. Most common is just the Dolphin. I am generally at MK within 15 minutes of pickup.

During my stays (which were in Sept and Oct), the MK bus pickup route was Boardwalk, Swan, Dolphin. Took about 15-20 minutes to get to the MK.

I just booked with Tiffany Towncars and they were pleasant and efficient!

We are going the last week of Nov-first week of December. Does anyone know if the weather would usually allow pool time?

Thanks!

We were there 7/30-8/4. The bus route was Swan, Dolphin, BW, YC, BC. I can't remember the sequence for BW, YC, BC. I know that the Swan was first then Dolphin then the other 3 resorts.

We historically have our vacations that last week of July into early August. This is the first time the bus route included the other 3 all time we were there. I only remember Disney including BW on previous year's trips but that was not often.

Even with the other 3 resort stops, we were at MK in about 20 minutes.

My experience has usually been Boardwalk, Swan, and Dolphin to the MK. However, there's a thread on the resorts board about a disappointing stay at the Beach Club. Much of the discussion is about the bus service from the Epcot resorts: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2979782

Smile early transportation to MK

We will be staying at the Dolphin in Dec. We are scheduled for the train tour at the MK. We need to be there at 7am. Any recommendations on how to get there? Thanks

Taxi - unless you have a car.

We were there in June and the Dolphin was the last pick up on the way to the MK. Good that we didn't have to stop at all the other resorts, but it was usually bad because by the time the bus got to us it was PACKED (or in a few cases, it couldn't even pick us up because it was so full!)

Going to DTD was the worst. The order was Swan, Dolphin, Yacht Club, Beach Club, Boardwalk, and then DTD. It took FOREVER!

We just retuned from the Dolphin yesterday, and the bus to MK picked up at the Boardwalk, Swan and then the Dolphin. There was one day when it took over an hour for a bus to come, because they would fill up at the other 2 hotels and go straight to MK. A lot of people were complaining and this didn't happen again during our 10 days, but we did have to stand a lot. Being able to walk to the other 2 parks makes waiting for a bus all worth it! Have a great trip!
