When you visit Walt Disney World, one of the biggest perks for families is that you do not need a car. Disney World has transit options from buses to the monorail to the Disney Skyliner that can transport Guests magically to their next destination.

If you stay at a Disney Resort, hopping on the Disney bus to Disney Springs is a perfect way to spend your day when you are not at the parks, wanting to shop, or just want to have a delicious meal. Guests have unfortunately not had the opportunity to pop on over to Disney Springs whenever they wanted due to different restrictions in the Disney Springs bus schedule. But now, it looks like the schedule is changing.

On the Walt Disney World website, we can now see that Disney Springs transport between there and each Disney Resort will run on the same schedule as the Disney Springs operating hours. The site states: 

Beginning November 29, 2020, bus service between Disney Resort hotels and Disney Springs will be available during Disney Springs operating hours—and will end one hour after closing. Bus service between Disney Resort hotels and Disney theme parks begins 45 minutes prior to opening and ends one hour after closing.

We of course knew that Disney was running their buses to the theme parks, as long lines have been reported of waits for over an hour to get a spot on the socially distanced Disney buses. The buses will be running off Disney Springs hours which means that the bus will start running at 10:00 AM and end at midnight since Disney Springs closes at 11:00 PM.

It is great to see that as time passes, little bits of the Disney magic are returning to normal. I mean, we even get to see some baby fireworks (or at Disney has been calling them “special effects”) on Cinderella Castle in the evenings at Magic Kingdom, which isn’t back to normal — but it sure is a step in the right direction!

Until everything is back to normal, at least we can hop on a Disney bus right over to Disney Springs to enjoy some mac and cheese at Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’.

Do you like using Disney transport, or would you rather drive?
