  1. I understand that bus transportation is provided to Disney Springs from Disney Resorts, but you don’t specify if transportation is provided to return to the resort. I know this probably seemsike a stupid question, but I just want to make sure. Does Disney provide bus transportation from Disney Springs to the Disney Resorts?

    1. Hi, no your question is understandable. Buses travel from Disney Springs to the Disney Resorts. There’s a huge bus stop in front of the Town Center area at Disney Springs. It’s next to the same area where they drop you off. There are signs that indicate the bus stop number for each individual resort.

  2. Just a bus warning for leaving Disney Springs. One year we took Disney Spring bus to Boardwalk Resort which is 5-10 minutes straight down highway. It took 65 minutes w/ stops at every Epcot hotel & resort first lol.

  3. I have read that an option for the quickest way to get from Disney Springs to EPCOT is by taking the Disney bus back to the Swan Hotel, and then walking to EPCOT, with a walk of little less than a mile (0.7 miles), and is then about a 15 minute walk, which I don’t mind
    Is this still an option?
    Are these buses still located at the Marketplace Bus Loop, on the east side of Disney Springs and if so are they easy to find?
    Will the bus simply say Swan Hotel on the front of it, or is there something else to look out for on the front of the bus?

    1. Hi, you would want to take the bus from Disney Springs back to Beach Club. It’s a much shorter walk. We recently left Epcot one day to have a late lunch at Disney Springs. We walked out of Epcot at the International Gateway and took a bus from the Beach Club to Disney Springs, and then returned to Epcot the same way. It’s about a 5-minute walk from Beach Club’s lobby to Epcot.

    It sounds like the Disney Resort buses that go to/from Disney Springs are available to anyone, regardless if you are staying on/off the property? Is this correct? Also, it appears Lynx has buses at Disney Springs that go near offsite Marriott properties? Where would I find more information on Lynx? Thank you!

    1. Yes anyone visiting Walt Disney World can take advantage of the transportation options offered at the resorts or theme parks. Unfortunately, I don’t have any information for Lynx. However, the Marriott hotels will have any options for transportation listed on their individual websites. It really depends on which hotel you choose. Have a fun trip!

        Hi Amber, thank you for your response. So If I am wanting to save $$ on transportation I could take Lynx to Disney Springs, then take the Disney bus to the Beach Club Resort (for free), then take the water taxi (for free) to Hollywood Studios?? I know it will involve more time, but being by myself there is no hurry… BTW, what time do the Disney Resort buses start running FROM Disney Springs? Thx!

        1. You are welcome. It sounds like you enjoy traveling at your leisure, as do I. As far as resort buses from Disney Springs, they will be slower to pick up from the venue than drop off first thing in the morning. I would imagine there aren’t many people leaving at opening time, so you might have to alter your route a little bit.

    Hi Resorts Gal,
    Thanks for this thorough transportation article! Our vacation starts next Monday.
    Is this a good plan?… we are staying the Hilton Buena Vista Palace, which is right across from Disney Spring. It’s an official Disney hotel with a shuttle to all the parks. We want to have lunch at Gyser Point. Should we take our shuttle straight to Ticket and Transportation ctr. then take the ferry to Wilderness Lodge ? Or is there a better option?

    1. If it were me, I would probably walk to the bus stop at Disney Springs and catch a direct bus to the Wilderness Lodge. However, it is a bit of a walk from your hotel to the Disney Springs bus stop. (I think I touched on this in our Hilton Buena Vista Palace Review.)

      If you take the shuttle you’ll get dropped off at the TTC. Then you’ll have to take the ferry or monorail to Magic Kingdom, go through security, and then take a boat to the Wilderness Lodge. So this isn’t a terrible option, but make sure to give yourself plenty of time to do either.

      Have fun!

    Thanks so much!! We’ll do your first option.

    1. You are welcome. You might consider how early you leave too. If Disney Springs hasn’t been open long, there might not be a ton of buses returning to the resorts yet.

  7. We are planning a trip and I’m
    Trying to figure out transportation via Disney bus. We are staying at POP Century and have dinner reservations at Splitsville dining room afterward we were looking to go to Winter Summerland Mini golf which I believe is outside of Blizzard beach ( temporarily closed) is there a bus that will take us from
    Disney Springs to the mini golf place and the back to POP Century from the mini golf area?

    1. Hi, to my knowledge when Blizzard Beach is closed, bus transportation is not available to Winter Summerland. You would likely need to take a taxi, Minnie Van, or car service from the West Side of Disney Springs to Winter Summerland. Or you could take a bus from Disney Springs to Coronado Springs, and then take a taxi or car service to Blizzard Beach, which might save you a few extra dollars (but not time).
