View Full Version : Swan/Dolphin drive to MK?

About how long of a drive would it be to drive your own car from Swan to MK?
About 5 minutes if no line at the booth. But keep in mind you then have to walk/tram to the ferry/monorail to get to the MK.

Yeah, only 5-10 minutes. But like Scar said, you then have to park, take the tram, then the monorail or the ferry boat to get to the park. That's the only park that's really a pain to get to driving your own car. The bus drops you off right in front of the entrance.

Traveling between parks and resorts/other parks, Downtown Disney, and water parks, I usually recommend *at least* an hour's travel time.
From Swolphin to *the MK parking-lot toll plaza*, yes, it's only about 5 minutes. But that's *just* the drive time on EPCOT Resorts Blvd and World Drive; it's not counting the time walking out to the car from your room, waiting at and going through the toll plaza, walking to a tram or walking to the TTC (depending on where you're parked), waiting for and getting on either the ferry or monorail, travel time on said monorail/ferry, getting off of either one, *then* walking to the MK main entrance (and depending on lines *at* the turnstiles at the front of the park).
Give it at least an hour.

I have stayed at the Dolphin a few times and it has never taken more than at most 20-25 minutes to be at the Monorail/ferry station. This includes waiting for our car from the valet and for the times my Mom was with me, loading her wheelchair. Now, when we have Mom with us, we get to park in the handicap parking, so no tram, making it 15-20 minutes from hotel to the monorail station. The only time I could see it taking a longer than 15-20 minutes is if you are driving in at park opening.
