WDW Transportation "Calculator"

Hi Everyone,

It has been a few years since I have been to Disney and I am planning a trip with my hubby only (Whoo Hoo)!

Anyway, I thought there used to be a website that would let you put in the name of a Disney place you are starting at then the end place .... and it would tell you the best way to get there. (ie. Bus to Epcot, then boat or monarail to GF)

I could be losing my mind and there really might not be a website like this .... but I thought you guys might be able to help me if it does exist! LOL!

Thanks for the help!

Yes, it is OLP. BUT...be careful. There are still some inaccuracies on that site. You can use it to get a genera idea of how to get from point A to point B. You really are better off coming here and asking.

Doesn't exist. OLP pretends to offer it. The site as numerous errors. The site chooses not correct said errors. If you know enough to catch the errors then you don't need the site.

A recent poster, knowledgeable about Disney, recently posted a couple of routes from OLP, in response to a question. One of the two routes required taking a bus route which hasn't run in years.

The site is less then useless.

There's an app for that- for iPhone anyway it's called TWiz (WDW Transportation Wizard). I've never checked its absolute accuracy but it is very good for laying out all the options for your needs.
