OK I know I've been a bit skeptical when others have complained about Disney transportation. We've used it well since '88, had a few times at Christmas when we waited a longer time than usual for buses, but now I appreciate newer comppplaints about the logistics. We had always counted on the TTC to be able to re-group and help us get where we needed to be. Now it's almost impossible to go from resort to resort--instead of the recommended one hour, I think it can take close to two. In order to move from resort to resort you always have to have a theme park stop, and to get to another goal (like Downtown Disney or Blizzard Beach), you need to be at a resort. We tried something new--no rental car with just the two of us celebrating our anniversary. We arrived late on Saturday 8/17 and stayed at an airport hotel. We knew Mears was an option, but decided to take the Lynx bus to WDW Sunday morning. Our hotel had a Lynx stop right outside. It took us about an hour and a half to reach the TTC ($1.10 fee for each) with a transfer from route 11 to 50 at the downtown Orlando bus terminal, and then the confusion began. We asked at the transportation desk the best route to Old Key West -- were told just go to any theme park , "there's an MGM, take that one". Driver says "too full, wait for another. " DH and I decide to take monorail to MK, wait for bus. Bus arrives after 15 minutes, Hospitality House is last stop at resort. One hour from TTC to resort. Later that day we were at Epcot, near the front, and had tickets for the Peter Frampton concert at HOB. Since we were near the main gate, we decided to go the bus route, rather than walk back through Future World and take the International Gateway. We now knew there was no bus to Downtown Disney, and that we had to go to a resort first. We decided to take the monorail to MK and use the Polynesian for the Downtown Disney bus. It took us forever! We did not get to HOB for an hour and a half! We missed the opening act, but Frampton himself was wonderful. On another day we needed to get from Typhoon Lagoon to Downtown Disney. We again knew we could only go to a resort to get a bus to DD, even tho the same bus circles from resort to DD to TL, so picked Caribbean Beach as a resort close to DD. The bus goes around the resort twice! It takes a really long time! I'm not sure we will ever try WDW without a rental car again. Not having an option of directly going to DD from the parks, and always needing to go either to a theme park to get to a resort, or to go to a resort to get to a theme park or another destination is really a pain, and wastes that precious WDW time. Thanks for letting me vent.
