SOMEWHAT CONVENIENT WALT DISNEY WORLD RESORTS

11. Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter (M). Not as distant as it sometimes feels—within a mile of Epcot. Own Magic Kingdom bus, but usually shares other buses with Port Orleans Riverside and its 4 stops. (~2000 rooms served/bus)

12. Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort (M). Four bus stops. (~2000 rooms served/bus)

13. Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside (M). Four stops for Magic Kingdom bus; 5, including Port Orleans French Quarter, for remainder. (~2500 rooms served/bus)

14. Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort (M). Seven stops! (~2000 rooms served/bus)

15. Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort (V). Somewhat distant. Except for Magic Kingdom, during slower periods can share buses with other All-Stars. When sharing, longest ride of three All-Stars to parks other than Magic Kingdom; shortest ride back. (~4200 rooms served/bus)

16. Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort (V). Somewhat distant. Other than Magic Kingdom, during slower periods can share buses with other All- Stars. When sharing, shortest ride of three All-Stars to parks other than Magic Kingdom; longest ride back. (~4200 rooms served/bus)

17. Disney’s All-Star Music Resort (V). Somewhat distant. Other than Magic Kingdom, during slower periods can share buses with other All-Stars. (~4200 rooms served/bus)

18. Disney’s Old Key West Resort (DVC). 5 Stops. Somewhat distant, sometimes infrequent service during the day in slower periods. (~1100 rooms served/bus)

19. Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort (DVC). 5 stops. Most remote, many stops, sometimes infrequent service during the day in slower periods. (~1800 rooms served/bus).  The Treehouse section is even more inconvenient, as you take a bus from here to the main Saratoga resort to pick up theme park buses.

20. Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground (Other). All transport here is complicated by the need to take an internal bus with many stops to one of two main internal destinations, and then pick up yet another transportation mode—boat to Magic Kingdom, buses otherwise—to complete trip. (~2200 rooms served/bus)

Non-Disney Resorts on Site: The Swan and Dolphin have convenience similar to the Yacht and Beach Clubs and Boardwalk. Shades of Green is less convenient than the Wilderness Lodge—it has its own bus system, which is not so frequent nor convenient as the Disney system.

I don’t understand why CBR doesn’t receive more love for it’s transportation. Yes it has seven stops but it’s like pop century resort having a stop at each building. It would save a lot on walking and in the rain you could get back to the resort a lot sooner. It also has a internal bus to get you to old port royale. Last time I was there I was like a minute away from the stop.
