The Expert Guide to EPCOT Transportation Options

by Leap on February 10, 2021 2 Orlando

Epcot Transportation - PinterestA little mermaid once said, "How many wonders can one cavern hold?" and that's essentially how we feel about Walt Disney World. So much to explore, so many exciting places to see! Walt Disney World is vast, and it can be tough tackling where and how to get to your next thrill ride, character experience or delicious meal.

Not to worry! Our Frog Family knows how to get around! Our froggy legs can only leap so far, so we use the complimentary EPCOT transportation to hop around property.

EPCOT transportation may just be the most versatile of all the parks. Options include boats, monorails and buses. But wait, there's more! Disney World offers Skyliner, a sky-high gondola system that features a stop at EPCOT's International Gateway, making EPCOT the most accessible by Disney transportation. Here are the ins and outs of all of the free EPCOT transportation options.

The Expert Guide to EPCOT Transportation

EPCOT Transportation - Skyliner Station

You can get between almost any two points within Walt Disney using complimentary transportation, especially if you're staying on-site at a Disney Resort hotel. Even if you're staying off-site and have a Park Hopper ticket, you can utilize the free buses, monorails and more to make the leap from park to park. For example, you can take the Skyliner from EPCOT to Hollywood Studios ... but we'll get into that below. (Transportation options may be limited during Disney World's initial reopening phase. For more information about what you need to know when visiting EPCOT, hop to our full guide here!)

The perks don't stop at free transportation for Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests ... there are tons of other benefits too! Check out our favorite reasons to stay on-site at Disney World.

Can I park at a resort (not a guest) & use transportation to a park? I’m disabled & retired in fixed income- the $25 parking fee is a huge expense

Hi Melissa,

Unfrogtunately, guests who are not staying at the hotels may not use resort parking. Security is stationed at the entrance of each resort and they check to make sure that you have a reservation or a dining reservation in order to park.

Keep hopping!
