Walt Disney World Resort “Express Bus Service” Discontinued 8/2017

Express Service

Disney offers a service that transports Walt Disney World Resort visitors from one park to another, its called Express Bus Service. If you’re willing to pay the additional cost and you currently have an Annual Pass or Park Hopper tickets it just might fit your touring style. The cost is $19 per person for a single day of service and $29 per person for a seven day pass (prices may vary). They do not yet have a length of stay pass, so keep your eyes and ears open for that. If you’re interested the bus comes every thirty minutes beginning at 10am.

If you like to Park Hop, this is a faster option of doing so. You will go straight from one Disney Theme Park to another Disney Theme Park; instead of going to a Disney Resort Hotel then jumping onto another bus to go to the Theme Park. You will go through one security entry process at the beginning of your day and when you’re ready to go to another Theme Park, the Express Bus Service will pick you up inside the Theme Park and take you directly inside another Theme Park. Example- Your first Theme Park of the day is Magic Kingdom, you go through the security entry process and into the park, you spend a few hours and now want to go to Animal Kingdom Park, you go to the Express Bus Service clearly marked kiosk, they scan your MagicBand to make sure you have an Annual Pass and/or Park Hopper and you wait till they escort you onto the bus for Animal Kingdom Park.

Express1As of now they are only going to the four main Disney Theme Parks and vice versa. Remember the Express Bus Service is still fairly new and it could change at the drop of Mickey Ears! TIP– Not to burst you or your child’s Disney bubble, but you will see backstage areas while loading and unloading the Express Bus. If it’s extremely busy at the parks and this fits your budget and your family’s touring style, I suggest you try this service out. This upgrade can be purchased when you purchase your Theme Park tickets, Front Desk at your Disney Resort Hotel or at Guest Relations. Have a magical day!
