Guest Review: Express Transportation At Walt Disney World Parks

Disney is offering a new service to get you quickly from park to park called Express Transportation. My husband and I had the chance to try it out over the weekend and loved it!

UPDATE 2018! Alas - Walt Disney World no longer offers Express Transportation service between Parks.


New Express Transportation at Walt Disney WorldNew Express Transportation at Walt Disney World


To use this service, you will need to have the Park Hopper option on your ticket or an Annual Pass. Also, keep in mind these busses do not take you to your Resort or Disney Springs. You still must exit the parks to get to those locations. Tickets can be purchased at the check-in locations with credit card or MagicBand only. If you would like to pay with cash you can go to all 4 theme park ticket windows and guest relations, the Disney Springs ticket window, your resort concierge or the Swan and Dolphin ticket desks.

Check in locations are as follows:

  • Hollywood Studios the courtyard in front of Rock 'n' Roller Coaster
  • Animal Kingdom near the entrance of Kilimanjaro Safaris
  • Epcot The East side of Spaceship Earth (between Guest Services and Gateway Gifts)
  • Magic Kingdom Near the exit of Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin

We started our day in Hollywood Studios, when we got to Rock n Roller Coaster for our FastPass we saw the signs and the check-in stand. We took a peek the check in area then got in line for our limo ride to the Aerosmith Concert. We were planning on getting in the car to head to Epcot but decided to try out the new system. We walked back to the check in stand and the Cast Member got us all signed up. It is $15 per guest for the day or you can purchase 7 consecutive days pass for $24 per guest. We went for just one day.

We had to wait about 20 minutes for the bus as it had just recently left. The busses run every 30 minutes on the hour and they ask that you check in about 10 minutes prior to departure. Each park has different times so you need to be sure you check each time for the park you are going to. While we were there the Epcot bus was leaving at 10 and 40 minutes on the hour and Animal Kingdom 20 and 50 minutes on the hour. So 1:10, 1:40, 2:10, 2:40 etc.

You are going "backstage" when you board the bus and there are signs that state "No Photography". We saw a few cool things but I don't think it is anything that will break the magic for small ones. However, we did not go to Magic Kingdom but I am sure they keep it "kid friendly"

A couple of our favorite things about the Express Transport:

Going thru Bag Check and Security only once: This saved so much time! Once you are "in" your first park of the day you are essentially "in" all 4 parks for the rest of the day.

Thanks so much for sharing your experience with us JMed! This sounds like a fantastic option for folks that are Park Hopping.

Seems pretty reasonably priced if you go with the $24 for a full week option, and a real time-saver over hoofing it to the parking lot or the park-to-park buses.

JMed, do you know what time this starts in the morning? I'm wondering if I could either take advantage of the new early Main St, opening at MK or mornings EMH at AK and still make it to Epcot at some time that is rope-drop-adjacent or if I'll be to early to get express transportation at that point. I have one day and I was thinking about going to MK to check out the new pre-opening breakfast options before I hop to Epcot for Festival of the Arts. I feel like this is a thing that would start at like 10am, so my plan would have to involve the dreaded two-park security check.

Alicemouse, it starts at 10 until park closing. So I don't think you could make it close to rope drop. Although how awesome would it be to catch 2 in one day???
