    Aleska from TX Asked

    Turns out I booked a hotel in Disney Springs that is not a Disney resort and we have tickets to Magic Kingdom. Will it be difficult for my family and I to get to and from the hotel and park since our hotel is not on the shuttle route? Any suggestions?

    Hi, Aleska!

    Hakuna Matata, No Worries! There will be a way to get the Magic Kingdom regardless of where you stay. Start by calling your hotel directly. Many hotels in the area offer their own shuttle service to the Disney theme parks. Find out what services they offer. Make sure to ask if there is a cost to use their shuttles so you do not have any surprise fees.

    You also have the option of driving to the theme parks. Whether you drove in from your hometown or rented a car, there is ample parking at any of the parks. There is a daily parking fee for guests at the theme parks, and you will also want to ask your hotel if they charge overnight parking for your car. 

    There is also the option of car services that you can book on your smartphone apps. Taxis are also very popular in the Orlando area, so you can always hire a taxi (the cost for taxis can add up, so plan accordingly!)

    Remember that if you are flying into the Orlando Airport, you will need transportation to your hotel. If this is the case, you might want to look into a car rental so you can zoom around during your vacation. Disney's Magical Express is only available for guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel. 

    However you get to all the magical locations in Walt Disney World, I wish you safe and happy travels!
