The Expert Guide to EPCOT Transportation Options

by Leap on September 10, 2020 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, 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 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 recently opened 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 monorail to get from EPCOT to Magic Kingdom, and a boat from EPCOT to Disney's Hollywood Studios ... but we'll get into that below. (Currently, transportation options may be limited due to park hopping being temporarily unavailable 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.

*Note: Most areas throughout Walt Disney World, 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 Disney's Hollywood Studios, but we love the new Skyliner option. What's your favorite way to hop around the parks? Tell us in the comments!
