We normally hire a care, however the last time we went we were staying on Disney Property and decided to see what it would be like without using a car.

I was a bit apprehensive at first as I'm not someone who usually uses Bus transport. It turned out to be quite a pleasant experience. Catching the Disney Bus in the mornings wasn't a problem and there was very little wait. Catching the Bus in the evenings had a longer wait but it still wasn't too bad.

The buses can be crowded at peak times, standing room only, but the journey's are short, so again not a problem.

Overall I would definitely consider not hiring a car for future trips.

We used Disney Buses most of the time with the occasional Taxi ride to the Malls, Seaworld and Universal. The money we spent on the Taxis was far less than we would have spent on car hire.

Not having a car also meant I could very easily Park hop using the Disney Buses or even the Disney Boats. We had a very pleasant trip from Magic Kingdom to Boardwalk then to Epcot one day.

As it was the Food and Wine festival at EPCOT it was also nice for us to be able to enjoy some wine with our meal without having to worry about driving.

Having found this on the DIBB earlier, i thought i would share the experience our group had recently & update you on what is now included.

well we went to a guest relations office ... in this instance the EPCOT guest relations. Very helpfull and helped us throught to getting hold of a cast member that could deal with our query. We booked when we were offered a tour the next day !

Well we met Kristen at the town hall at the magic kingdom guest relations, and we all set off on a main street tour and a brief history tour of the walt empire & how it was put together. with our earpiece sets and special passes, you got the sense that people were looking at you ! " Oh yes ... we are VIP's".
Well a tour of the back stage areas first & its amazing on really how BIG it really is.
This followed onto us going into some rides via a system better than fast pass... yup thats right its an instant pass ! the safri ride & haunted house... and short cut stright onto a ride that had a 90 minute wait ! .
Well a lunch courtesy of disney upstairs with outher cast members & of course asking as many questions as you liked ! .
We were presented with special tie pins with keys to the magic kingdom ' a very nice touch' on a unique presentation card.
This followed a tour of the utilidoors and some special walt disney memorbilia... not found anywhere else on the site.
All in All this tour is well worth the money and i must admit more geared to the adult, that has already done the park ... but wants more of how its done & run.

well worth it & well recomended
