The Expert Guide to Epcot Complimentary Transportation

by Leap on September 10, 2019 Orlando

The Expert Guide to 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, 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 hop around.

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 just opened up 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 free Epcot transportation options.

The Expert Guide to Epcot Transportation

Epcot Transportation - Skyliner Station

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 make 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 Walt Disney World Resort guests ... there are tons of other benefits, too! Check out our favorite reasons to stay on-site at Disney World.

From Epcot to Other Disney Theme Parks

To Magic Kingdom: Take the Epcot monorail to the Transportation and Ticket Center, then transfer to monorail or ferry boat to Magic Kingdom.

To Disney's Hollywood Studios: Take the boat or the walkway (from International Gateway entrance). You could use Skyliner, but you would need to take it to Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort and transfer to the Hollywood Studios line.

To Disney's Animal Kingdom: Take the bus.

Epcot Transportation - Monorail

*Note: Most areas throughout Walt Disney World Resort, including Disney theme parks, Disney water parks, Resort hotels and the Disney Springs area, are accessible by bus. Some bus routes may require transfer from one bus to another.

You see, everything at Disney World is only a hop, skip and a jump away with all of its great transportation options. We love that you can simply take a boat from Epcot to Hollywood Studios, but we love the new Skyliner option. What's your favorite way to hop around the parks? Tell us in the comments!
