Off site shuttle service

Does anyone know what the shuttle schedule typically looks like at the off site hotels near Disney? Going in October but unfortunately will have to stay off site and shuttle service to Epcot would come in handy. Is there a typical schedule that most hotels adhere to or does it vary from hotel to hotel? Thanks in advance for any insight!

I think most of them have shuttles running pretty regularly. They know who's bringing them guests and they don't want it to be too much of a hassle to stay off site.

I understand that the hotel shuttles are very expensive. Depending on where you are staying, the Lynx bus service is (last time I used it in 2009) only $2 per person per journey. iiirc the no.50 runs from opposite Seaworld to DTD and the TTC every 1/2 hour. From the TTC take the Monorail to Epcot.

Latest info is at


I can only please one person per day. Today isn't your day... tomorrow doesn't look good either.

Something to keep in mind with nearly all of the hotels near Walt Disney World and Universal Studios - virtually none of them offer free hotel shuttles from Orlando International Airport or Sanford International Airport.

Nearly all of them do offer free shuttles, on a schedule, to the major attractions, including Sea World too.

LYNX is cheap - but not very convenient - especially with lots of luggage - or if you don't want to spend your time on a slow city bus! Renting cars can be expensive - easily in excess of $250 for a long weekend and if you're like me, you might want to indulge a bit so you can't drive anyway so that car is of little use.

The best way to compare limo/shuttle/private-ride rates from the Orlando airport to your hotel is to visit to compare rates among more than 30 transportation companies, including Mears (the biggest). You can compare rates and book the best deal.

A side benefit of this service - they include all the fees in their rate, so you don't get surprise toll rates, luggage fees, etc. that many don't disclose directly on their site so you can really compare fairly what you'll spend. The rates and cheapest hotel shuttle will vary depending on your destination and the size of your group.

(As a general rule, bringing kids doesn't have a lower cost than additional adults in your party, FYI.)
