Transportation Between Parks

“But how do we GET to Neverland?”

Well I’ll tell ya

Ya got FOUR options:

  1. Bus
  2. Boat
  3. Monorail
  4. Car

With a bonus future 5th option:

Skyway!

(I suppose it’s really called the ‘Skyliner’ but that’s a stupid name…)

Which one is best?

So that depends on what park you’re at, and to which park you’re going. Time of day is also an important factor. Monorail from Magic kingdom to Epcot around 4ish? Probably a good idea! Epcot monorail to Magic Kingdom around 7-8? Hell hath no fury!

What I can tell you is that you should avoid travelling to a park within an hour of a ‘Nighttime Spectacular.’ Those include Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom and Fantasmic at Hollywood Studios. Everyone and their mother is going to be going there, so if you need to go then you’ve missed your chance to make it peacefully.

Let’s pretend there are no crowds

To Epcot:

  • From Magic Kingdom, the Monorail is the most fun, quick, and spacious option. It also is much less rough than a bus. Busses are just as frequent, but carry less people and are rough to stand in. They also take longer to get from MK to Epcot than monorails do.
  • From Animal Kingdom, your only option is a bus.
  • From Hollywood Studios, you can take a bus OR a boat. The boat rides can be hot in the summer, but are generally not too crowded and are a very scenic trip with a peek at some high end resorts.

To Magic Kingdom:

  • From Epcot, the Monorail is once again the most fun, quick, and spacious option. It also is much less rough than a bus. Busses are just as frequent, but carry less people and are rough to stand in. They also take longer to get from Epcot to MK than monorails do.
  • From Animal Kingdom: busses only :(
  • From Hollywood Studios: again, your only option is busses.

To Hollywood Studios:

  • From Magic Kingdom: busses only :(
  • From Animal Kingdom: busses only :(
  • From Epcot: you can take a bus OR a boat. As stated previously, the boat rides can be hot in the summer, but are generally not too crowded and are a very scenic trip with a peek at some high end resorts.

To Animal Kingdom:

  • The only way to get to Animal Kingdom is by bus or car.
  • Driving is also a valid option for each park. Save your parking pass to gain free entry to the next park you visit right up until midnight of that day. This is not a sneaky workaround, Disney promotes this.

So now that we’ve gone over how it looks with no crowds, let’s sprinkle some in.

Busses: crowded, rough, slow. Avoid at all costs especially during peak travel times to corresponding parks.

  • Any transport to epcot around lunch time is crowded, but busses are especially bad.
  • Busses to parks that are showing a Nighttime Spectacular within an hour or two of your bus ride are going to be packed out.
  • You will be expected by other guests to give up your seat if you aren’t obviously and visibly disabled.
  • Guests will walk halfway down the isle and stop, preventing further boarding, so you may not make the bus you waited 20 minutes for.

Monorails: fast, smooth, typically not too crowded even when busy

  • Monorails are the fastest way to travel between Magic Kingdom and Epcot.
  • They’re the most fun way too.
  • Their load stations are typically not sweltering hot.
  • Aim for a car that has wheelchairs or strollers. You’ll have more room that way. Trust me.
  • Again, NS’s (Nighttime Spectaculars) are going to make it incredibly crowded a few hours before the show.
  • High likelihood of not making a monorail due to popularity during peak hours.

Boats: they may be few, but we stan the Friendship boats

  • Epcot and Hollywood studios are connected by boat.
  • They’re the fastest and prettiest way to get from one to the other, in my opinion.
  • Rarely crowded, you’ll almost always get a seat unless you ride at peak hours like opening, closing, or before/after a NS.

Driving yourself: reliable, if slow

  • Driving yourself is valid, and if you save your parking pass Disney will allow you to enter the next park’s parking area for free. Up until midnight of the date you purchased the pass.
  • Driving yourself takes the longest out of any transport. You have to leave the park and walk or take a tram to your car, get out of the park the long way along with other guests, drive to the next park, and wait for a tram or walk to th entrance.
  • A great break from the crowds and the noise!

We can also look at times and events that are likely to make transport slow!

Run Disney

  • Busses and cars are slowed by marathoners on the roads
  • Monorails and boats are slowed by higher park attendance

Nighttime Spectaculars

  • Busses, monorails, and boats will be slowed by increased traffic to the parks starting an hour or two before the show begins
  • Cars may not be as effected, must experiment further

New lands opening

  • All methods of transport to a park that has a new land will be slow for months, if said land isnt a total flop (coughtoystorylandcough)
  • Best bet is to arrive before the park opens

That’s about all I have on transportation between parks! I dont really follow any schedule or rules when I go, I just avoid switching parks when a Nighttime Spectacular is coming on and it’s been fine. I just wanted to post this one because I’ve seen lots of people in groups asking about transportation.

Salvaging of the troopship SS Onward (probably 1918).

SS Onward was built in 1905 for the South Eastern and Chatham Railway for their Folkestone-Boulogne route.  During WW1, she was mostly used as a troop transport along her regular route.

On September 24th, 1918, the ship caught fire in Folkestone Harbour, which could only be controlled by scuttling her. Her seacocks were opened to stop the pier from catching on fire, and she turned over on her port side; five steam locomotives in harness were needed to haul her back upright.

In 1920, the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company bought the hull, and rebuilt the ship as the SS Mona’s Isle (1905).

During WW2, the SS Mona’s Isle evacuated 2,634 troops from Dunkirk in two trips, despite being damaged by German shore batteries and from the air. She was recorded as the first ship to complete a round trip during the evacuation.

On Board [23/30]

We met at a train station.
I was scared,
rocking nervously on the platform
and you were a kind stranger
that helped me step through the door.
I wanted to talk to you
so I sat next to you
and tried to enjoy the silence.
When I worked up the nerve to speak
it was so easy
and comfortable with you.
Now, we’ve been on this train for days
and I’m realizing that I don’t know
the final destination or
where I’m headed but I figure
I’ll go along with you.
When you get off,
I’ll get off too.
Until then,
I’m just going to keep close to you.

A Denver and Rio Grande train passes through the Marshall Past in the west (Colorado, 1882 – 97).

A Denver and Rio Grande passenger train stopped on tracks, and a freight train going in the opposite direction, in the Marshall Pass (Colorado, 1882 – 97).  This photo was taken in the region of the San Luis Valley and Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

In the early morning of 1 September 1939 the exercise to ‘get the children away’ began.  Police in loudhailer vans directed the 'great trek’ to and from assembly points.  Helpers – teachers, local authority officials and railway staff, plus members of voluntary organizations including 17,000 Women’s Voluntary Service (WVS) members – wearing armbands that denoted the party they were with, and usually carrying banners so they could be identified in a crowd, set out to accomplish 'war task number one’.  The children went by underground, bus, or other forms of hastily-assembled road transport to their designated 'entraining station’, either a main terminus or a suburban station, and were marshalled on to trains clutching gas masks, luggage, food and drink for the journey – and a favourite toy if the school allowed that, though not all did.

But it was soon apparent that nothing like the expected number had turned up.  A total of 3.5 million had been planned for: less than half that number – 1.5 million schoolchildren, teachers, mothers with small children, the disabled and their helpers – travelled under the scheme, though this shortfall was not admitted at the time.  The rate of take-up varied widely among the various places scheduled for evacuation…Richard Titmuss, who wrote a humane official history of the problems of social policy in the Second World War, suggested that parents from the poorest districts, who were likely to have the least education, were more likely to accept that those in authority – teachers and the government – in some way 'knew best’, and that they had little say in such matters as the evacuation of their children.

In theory, this shortfall meant that the exercise should have been easier to achieve than had been anticipated: in fact, it led to problems.  When it was clear that only half the number expected needed transport, train timetables and destinations were hurriedly rescheduled to get the evacuees away as fast as possible, but that meant that the evacuees who finally 'detrained’, in the official language, at towns and villages in the reception areas, were often quite different from those who had been expected and prepared for.

Today, I searched the database for potential objects to put on display in our upcoming transportation exhibit. I don’t know if these glasses will make the cut, but they certainly sparked my interest when I came across their record. After almost 8 years here, I have never seen them before. I guess that’s the fun of having 20,000+ objects in storage.

Google's first auto accessory is like a Home Mini for the car
A $50 way to get Assistant in your car.

One way to get Google Assistant into your car is to simply buy a car with Android Auto. Of course, that’s not exactly practical, and it doesn’t help if you’re looking for something a little older. You can also install the Android Auto app on your phone, which works well if you have a car mount. A few months ago, however, Google announced another possible solution: a line of aftermarket auto accessories that will offer yet another way to bring Assistant into the car. It’s partnering with third-party manufacturers to do so, and the first is Anker’s $50 Roav Bolt. We gave it a brief spin recently, and though it has a few issues, it does appear to be an easy and affordable way to get Google Assistant in your ride.
