Hi - question about driving to Disney Springs I am hoping someone can answer. We've always parked at the Orange Garage (don't think Lime was open yet on our last trip). Is it easy to access the Orange garage when coming from the west (traveling from Windsor Hills). It is hard to tell from maps whether there is a turn lane or how to get in - I love the off ramp/entrance to the Orange garage - makes that very easy to access but we'd rather park closer to the Marketplace side when we go on our first night. I do all the driving and my navigators are not always great and I know maps on my phone doesn't always take into consideration where you can't make a left turn.

Staying at the Towers at CS this month.
We will have our own vehicle but is it easier to take the bus to and from MK and the resort? I hate dealing with the ttc.

    Notification since this is transportation board:

    Buses are now running hourly from Skyliner Resorts to Epcot and DHS when Skyliner is running.
    How much do you think a Lyft/Uber costs in early morning or late night from/to Pop to Epcot, BC or DHS?

    Hi Everyone. Our non-Disney hotel shuttle will drop us off at the TTC. How do we get from there to Animal Kingdom?

    Walk 0.4 mi. or take Resort Monorail to Poly bus stop, then take a bus to AK.

    You could also take monorail or ferryboat to MK or Epcot and get bus there, but those buses may not start running until the park opens.

    We are staying in the campground and daughter is staying at Old Key West resort. What is the best way for her to come to us? Would an Uber be able to take her to Pioneer Hall without a dinner reservation?

    No, even with a dinner ressie, Uber/Lyft cannot get to Pioneer Hall. Minnie Vans can, if you;re willing to pay the outrageous (imho) cost.

    Uber can go to either WL or the Outpost (FtW check-in), and then she must take a bus. Or you could pick her up at Outpost if you have a car or a cart.

    Using Disney Transport, best route is bus to MK, then boat to FtW, which docks near Pioneer Hall.

    So, a Minnie Van would be able to enter the campground. Would she need a reservation to enter? Could they bring her to our site? Thanks for the info!

    They can go to Pioneer Hall; no ressie required. I don't know whether they will drop off at a campsite. I would expect they can, but I haven't heard one way or the other. You could search for posts containing Minnie Van on the camping board.

    So, we are thinking of leving MK early on our second day as it is a Villain's party night and instead going for a late dinner at Yachtsman. Best way to get from CBR to Yatchsman OR MK to Yachtsman?

    From MK, take bus to Yacht Club

    From CBR, Skyliner to Epcot IG, then walk.

    Going back to CBR, if Skyliner has closed, you'd have to take bus to MK or DS and transfer to a 2nd bus. Better choice would be Uber, Lyft, or taxi.

    Thinking of starting our morning at MK and heading to AK around 11. - We've never taken park-park buses. - Is there a bus stop for AK like the regular resorts at MK or would we have to go to TTC? Any experiences with how often the park-park buses run? TIA!

    Yes, there is an AK bus stop at the MK. You can take a bus directly from the MK to AK.

    I would take the boat to BC, unless you just miss a boat or the line at the DHS dock is long, in which case take the Skyliner. Then Skyliner back to DHS from Epcot IG, unless you rode Skyliner to BC and you see a boat approaching BW from Epcot. Or you could just walk from BW to DHS, especially if you're at the end of BW closer to DHS.

    Leaving DHS, the boats stop at YC/BC before BW. Conversely, boats leaving BW stop at YC/BC on the way to DHS.

    Would it be better to just drive to beach club and then drive to HS?? Trying to factor in parking and security time also ???
