Getting where you want to go is easy when riding aboard Walt Disney World Water Transportation—including water launch, boat and ferryboat service to Magic Kingdom park and select Walt Disney World Resort hotels.
Simply wait at one of the convenient and well-marked pickup points throughout Walt Disney World Resort. Your ride will then arrive—usually within minutes—ready to transport you to a variety of destinations. Keep in mind that certain destinations are not direct; you may be required to take a connecting mode of transportation to reach your destination.
We are so glad to see this service return to Disney Resort hotel Guests. The boats are a quick and convenient way to travel from your resort to the theme parks. We highly recommended you use the water transportation option during your stay at Disney World, as we believe you will find it a relaxing and pleasant journey!
