    Jennifer from LA Asked

    I’m looking for convenience for transformation to and from parks to hotel. Which hotel is closest to parks and has no stops in between on the busses?

    Hello Jennifer!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question!

    One of the many benefits of staying at a Disney Resort hotel is being able to use Disney complimentary transportation. Certain hotels are closer to some parks, and it is definitely an amazing idea to stay close to the action and have quick and easy access to your room for those afternoon naps!

    In my opinion, the most convenient hotels are located on the monorail line: Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. They are also the ones closest to Magic Kingdom Park, but because of easy access to the monorail, you can easily visit Epcot, and will only need to take a bus to visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. However, if you are a big fan of Epcot, I recommend staying at one of the Epcot area hotels such as Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts and Disney’s BoardWalk Inn. You will be within walking distance of Epcot and just a short water taxi ride from Disney’s Hollywood Studios. If you stay at a Disney Resort hotel that is served by bus transportation, you will notice that buses are usually not shared and make no stops to and from theme parks. Please notice that this is subject to change without notice.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Jennifer! Please stop by if you have more questions!

    Best magical wishes,
