Disney World Cast Members are some of the most special people on Earth — they go out of their way to make sure that each guest has a magical time while at the resort.
Unless you’re coming from one of the Magic Kingdom area resorts, your MK day will likely be starting at the Ticket and Transportation Center. From here, you can grab one of the two iconic forms of Disney transportation — the monorail or the ferry boat — and make your way across Seven Seas Lagoon. However, there’s another way you can get to Magic Kingdom that people tend to sleeping on.
Thinking of going to Disney World for the VERY first time?
There are SO many things to consider and learn. Where do you stay? What’s the dining situation like? What types of tickets are there? It can all be a bit (OK, a LOT) overwhelming. Don’t worry, you do NOT have to figure this all out on your own. We’re here to help!! Today we’re breaking down everything you need to know about planning your very first trip to Disney World with lots of info, links, and videos that will make the process so much easier for you.
The thing we found today definitely looks like it has spent some time in Westview and has been trying to break out!
Planning on going on a Disney Cruise that departs from or arrives back at Port Canaveral in Florida?
Previously, a lot of guests would just hop directly on a Disney bus to get from their hotel or Orlando International Airport to Port Canaveral and then start their Disney cruise adventure. With the announcement that Disney’s Magical Express will be discontinued in 2022, you might be wondering if you’ll still be able to take Disney transportation to and from the airport and Port Canaveral, or between your Disney hotel and Port Canaveral. And now we’ve got an update.
With the New Year comes the return of park hopping at Disney World!
And even though this is a new park hopping process than it was before, we’re taking a look at park to park transportation! Today is the first day this transportation option is available since Disney World’s closure in March of 2020, so we couldn’t wait to see what changed (or didn’t) with the new park hopping system!
We’ve seen quite a few changes in Disney World recently! LOTS of festive decorations have gone up recently, and holiday snacks are popping up around the parks and resorts (one of which wasn’t even sure what holiday it was celebrating!), and the Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance morning boarding group sign-up process has changed.
But that’s not all! Check out the 7 newest changes in Disney World that you’ll want to know about and prepare for in advance of your next Disney trip.
We had a few of our team members arrive at Magic Kingdom this morning to attend the special Annual Passholder preview that’s happening today!
And just about all of us took a different method of transportation to get here! See what our team experienced driving their own cars to Disney World today as well as riding the monorail and using the Disney World buses to get to the gates of Magic Kingdom! We also checked out the ferryboats on our way out of the park today too!
Now that we’ve used Disney World’s new Mobile Dine Check-In and experienced our first character meal (all while navigating Disney’s new Park Pass Reservation System which launched today) we’ve had a little time to go diggin’ around for more details regarding Disney World’s phased reopening!
The Disney World parks will be closed from the end of the day on Sunday, March 15th through at least the end of the month. While Disney Springs and Disney Resort Hotels are scheduled to remain open at press time, it appears there will likely be reduced transportation options available. PLEASE NOTE: This post has been updated with NEW information regarding Walt Disney World transportation as of March 16, 2020.
