    I find it excellent. You enter through the front doors, pay you fare, turn around and park. I find very often I have to instruct the driver how to strap down the WC, but then I remind myself it isn't WDW so I can't expect WDW service. :goodvibes We use Lynx every time we leave WDW property for shopping, sight seeing, Old town etc.

    Thank you for the info, we are staying at Sea World for a few nights before we head to Disney. We were looking for transportation from Sea World to Disney. This is a huge help. :thumbsup2

    All you have to do is say something to the driver when you get on - they are very helpful. But they usually make the announcements very clear to the stop points.

    I few years ago we tryed the leave Disney to spend two nights in cheap motel down by Univerisal...mistake! Rather have spent the money on the cab fare to and from Disney. Crowded in the area! The Swan and Dolphin Resorts on DIsney have car rentals available for the day or two.

    If you are taking your own car is it better to take International Drive or I4 West?

    oh I am so glad I saw this thread! Taking public transportation had never even occurred to me as an option! It will cost us 1/2 the price and we won't have to worry about directions.
    Does anyone know if we can just pay the fare when we step on the bus or do we have to go somewhere ahead of time to purchase a pass?

    If you are only taking a few trips on Lynx, just pay your fare (exact cash only) when you get on the bus. Just drop your fare into the box. You will have to feed your paper money into the slot. You can also get an all day pass from the driver. If you plan on using Lynx for most of your travels, you might want to get a weekly pass, but I believe you have to go downtown to get it.

    I think you can get Lynx passes 7 day and 30 day at the Orlando Visitors Center on I -drive -I ride trolly stop 20 - at least I have purchased the 30 day pass there a few times - they are very helpful too and have Lynx route maps plus advice on how to get where you want to go using the Lynx bus and I ride trolly - very helpful!

    Just visited Sea World today with the family. We had originally planned on taking the Lynx bus, however last night my brother in law checked with the concierge. We were able to take 2 seven passenger vans for $19.00 each way from Saratoga Springs. We were picked up in front of our building ( in the Springs) at 9:00am and were dropped of at the gate to Sea World at 9:20. Called the cab company as we were leaving and they were there within 10 minutes to bring us back.

    For my family of 6, it was well worth the extra $10 of cab fare and tip versus the bus!!!

    We had a van service pick up\drop us off. It was reasonably priced for 10 of us. If it was just my family, I'd probably just get a taxi.

    Took a cab from French Quarter to Sea World on Jan 25, 2013. The fare was $25 on the way there, and $35 coming back due to traffic. Very easy.

    Does anyone known if the current price for Lynx to Seaworld is still $2/adult and $1/child? Also, is a 12 year old considered a child?

    This was copied from the Lynx website.








    Reduced Fares Application


    LYNX requires any eligible passenger the opportunity to travel on local bus service or NeighborLink to use a discounted fare. Upon boarding a bus, eligible riders must present a LYNX issued ID to use the discounted fare. Failure to do so will result in you having to pay the full fare.

    Passengers wishing to obtain an ID may visit the LYNX Central Station Terminal Lost & Found Window Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

    To receive a Youth ID (ages 10 - 18 or still in high school) you must present a birth certificate or government issued ID (e.g., driver’s license, state ID card or passport). Riders age six and under may still ride free when accompanied by an adult (full or discounted fare). No more than three children may ride free per adult. Children six and under must pay $1 when not accompanied by an adult.


    It sounds to me like the 12 year old would have to go to the Lynx station to get Youth ID to get a discount. If you are only using the busses for a day or so, in my opinion you are better off paying the adult fare.

    Can you pay cash for the fares - 2 one dollar bills, or do you need to buy tokens?

    Cash. When you board, use your exact change, sliding your paper money into the feeder, and dropping the coins into the box. The system will count it as you feed it. If you need a transfer, ask the driver. Transfers are free.

    So take the bus from AOA to DD then the public transportation to sea world for $2 seems pretty easy to me! That's where we are staying at
