  • Have you experienced all forms of Transportation to get to the parks/resorts?

    I can say Yes to that question.... and I plan on doing that for my next trip as well. Most of my Disney trips either with my family or with my kids I never had to use the Ferry, we never rented a car. But in my trip in 2015 I made sure I did all Transportation.

    I love the boats, the monorail, the buses and the ferry.

    What about you, have you rode all of them too?

    Thank you for participating!

    I’ve done them all. I don’t really like the ferry at MK, but I’ve done it a few times.

    ETA: If you count Minnie Vans, I haven’t done them all. We probably will check that one off the list in July.

      You can count that. I haven't rode one, but I did see one. I don't remember the price, it seems to change frequently.

      I'm sure it will be more than I really want to spend, but we have a reservation at Artist Point for the Snow White dinner, plus another day for breakfast at Boma. I will probably drive to one of them but take the Minnie Van for the other. I'm thinking the Minnie Van will be convenient for breakfast, since I think we would have to take the bus to AK and then another bus to AK Lodge. I think in July, I wouldn't mind driving to the TTC and taking a boat over to Wilderness Lodge for dinner.

    Yes, we’ve experienced the monorail, buses, ferry, Friendship Boats, walking, and years ago a rental car to get to the parks.
    We have also used a taxi several times and Lyft once when it looked like the bus wasn’t going to get us to our ADR in time.

      Yep, we've done them all and, in terms of getting to Disney World, we've done DME, rented a car, used a town car, so we've got that pretty covered too. And yes, we've used a Minnie van!

        We've also done them all, including a rental car twice. Friendship Boats and monorail would be my favorites, though I don't mind the buses.

          If you count taxis/Uber/Lyft/Minnie Vans as part of the "all" then no. I've never used a taxi at Disney and we don't have smart phones so we can't use the other three forms either

          What we have used over the years:

          Golf carts at FW and the Treehouse Villas when we stayed there
          The bus system more so years ago than now - this includes the internal bus system at FW
          The monorail - all three "lines"
          The ferry from the TTC to the MK
          The launch from the MK to FW
          The launch from Epcot to the DHS
          The boats from POR to DTD and back
          We've walked from the Contemporary to the MK
          Years ago, we took whatever boat took you took Discovery Island
          We use DME to get to Disney
          We use Quicksilver to get back to the airport
          We use a rental car to drive around

          What else is there? Am I forgetting something?

            We have never rented a car ever for any vacation and we’ve never used a taxi, Uber or Lyft at WDW either. We depend on the buses most of the time but have also used the monorail, ferry and friendship boats.

              We’v used all modes of transportation. My favorite is the monorail and my least favorite is the Friendship Boats. We even took a few taxis when we transferred from one hotel to another.

              I know this isn’t a mode of transportation, yet, but I’m really looking forward to the gondolas.

                We have not used them all. Since we use DME and the buses we have never used the ferry to get to MK. We used the friendship boats at POR to get to Disney Springs. We used the monorail to get from Epcot to the Contemporary for dinner at California Grill and a taxi to get to MK for the train tour one morning. So, we have a ways to go yet.

                  I've done rental car, ferry, monorail, busses, friendship boats, taxi, and walking. Only one I haven't done is the Minnie van.

                      I'm with you on the gondolas. I am not interested in them at all.

                        I can’t wait for the Skyliner! Hopefully it’s open by the time we stay at Pop in September! 😊

                        We have done them all, except for the Minnie Van and renting a car. The Skyliner should be great.
                        That might sound boring, but I think the boring stuff is the stuff I remember the most.

                          Used all of them and most of the lines. The only one I haven't used is the boat launch at OKW but many of the others. Buses, monorail, ferry, walking, running through the rain, taxi and Lyft.
