By Bus

• Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach are also serviced by the Downtown Disney and Animal Kingdom routes respectively.

By monorail

• Walt Disney World’s monorail system is one of its signature attractions, and it’s not even inside one of the parks. They do a great job of getting large numbers of guests from place to place, but they’re also quite comfortable and fun to ride.
• There are three monorail lines. The one you want to take is:
• The Resort Line: This route stops at all the resorts it passes. Polynesian, Grand Floridian and Contemporary. This route is used by resort guests to get to the Magic Kingdom or Epcot, and by guests visiting one of the resorts.

By boat

• Walt Disney World also has several waterways which are serviced by ferryboats.
• From the Magic Kingdom, ferries transport guests to the Contemporary, Grand Floridian, Polynesian, Fort Wilderness Campground, and Wilderness Lodge.
• From Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, service is to the Swan/Dolphin, Yacht/Beach Club, and Boardwalk.
