Transportation (Disney Springs) Question


#1

CM told me I can take a bus directly from DS to AK (around 6:00 PM). Is this correct? Looking for fastest way to get from DS to AK in the early evening. Thanks!


#2

I thought DS buses only went to resorts, but I may be wrong.


#3

One thing that can be done as far as I know is to take a Bus from DS to AKL and then bus from AKL to AK. But this will take forever. I would recommend Taxi.


#4

You can take a bus directly from AK to DS after 4:00 but you cannot take a bus from DS to any park at any time of the day. What CM said that? The call center?


#5

Yes. I didn't think that was correct based on what I read in the Unofficial Guide. She also told me I can choose FP's anytime after the parks close (after midnight) on my 60th day (for me 4/22). I thought the window won't open until 7:00 AM, right?


#6

You are correct! The CM is wrong.


#7

Based on your experience, given that I have to take a bus to AKL and transfer to AK, how much time would you allow (at 6:00PM, 6/27) before booking a FP at AKL?


#8

That is a long ride! If you are planning on being at the AKL bus stop at 6/00 I would not start my FP window until 7:00 or 7:15.


#9

I would guess it would take somewhere between an hour to 1.5 hours. But a Taxi should only take about 15 minutes or so.


#10

Here is a website that is pretty accurate:

Be careful with that website! It has not been updated and does not list the direct from park to DS option or the latest water park transportation issues among other things!


#12

It looks like your best bet would be to take a boat to Saratoga Springs, and then take a bus from there. That should take about an hour.


#13

Good to know.


#14

Knowing that FPPs reseve a 60 minute window (plus a 15 min grace period), I would probably make my first one for 7:00. I would probably even go for 6:30, if that was all that was available...

But to answer the basic question, a cab or Uber would definitely be the fastest was to get there...

Thanks everyone!

If you decide to use Uber, this info may be helpful to you:
