Disney Transport is a mass public transit system of the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista and Bay Lake, Florida which provides free service to guests of the resort. The transportation system consists of buses, a monorail system, a gondola lift system, watercraft, and parking lot trams. Most of the routes operated by Disney Transport are buses that run along the resort's public roads maintained by the Reedy Creek Improvement District and private roads. None of these modes of transportation charge a fare, which makes the entire network free to use.
Except where a transportation service exists or walking is practical, direct bus service is provided from every hotel to every park and Disney Springs, as well as between parks. The buses are fare-free for all visitors to Walt Disney World, which typically start 45 minutes before the park opens and end an hour after the park closes but run from Disney Springs to the resorts until 2 a.m. Bus stops are located near park entrances; near Disney Springs' Town Center entrance; and along roadways inside the resort or near the resort's entrance .
At the resorts, there are screens that sometimes indicate when the next bus to a given park will be arriving. This technology tracks the buses through GPS technology to give projected wait times, though buses usually run at intervals of no more than twenty minutes. On board the air-conditioned, ADA-accessible buses, announcements are played to indicate points of interest and bus stops. These announcements use GPS to determine which announcements should be played at which locations. All buses are ADA-accessible and can carry two wheelchairs or mobility scooters per vehicle which must be folded before boarding.
The four theme parks, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom, as well as Disney Springs, operate as the five primary hubs. Each of the four theme parks has service to the 22 resorts and the other parks. Disney Springs has service only to the resorts, except for one-way service from the theme parks to Disney Springs after 4 p.m. Bus service is not provided on some routes served by monorail or watercraft to resorts on their line.
