The Expert Guide to Epcot Transportation

by Leap on September 20, 2018 Orlando

A 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, dance parade or live show. 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 get everywhere! Read on for our expert guide to Epcot transportation.

Epcot Transportation - Monorail over Water

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 is in the process of building its Skyliner, a sky-high gondola system that will feature a stop at Epcot's World Gateway. We'll update this post with the most efficient routes when the Skyliner opens, but for now, here are the ins and outs of free Epcot transportation.

The Expert Guide to Epcot Transportation

You can get between almost any two points within the Walt Disney World Resort with complimentary transportation, especially if 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 take the leap from park to park. For example, you can take the monorail to get from Epcot to Magic Kingdom, and a boat from Epcot to Hollywood Studios ... but we'll get into that below.

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