    Default Disney outpricing me!

    Staying at Wyndham Gardens in May! First time not staying in Disney. Is it easy to grab a bus from Disney Springs to a park or is it even possible? Anyone stay here before? About 600.00 cheaper than Art of Anim. after cost from airport for 7 nights.

    I'm pretty sure that buses from Disney Springs don't go to a park. You can take a bus from the Springs to a resort and then from there take a bus to the park, or walk over to Saratoga Springs and take a bus.

    One-way bus service from the 4 Disney theme parks operates daily from 4:00 PM until 11:00 PM or 2 hours after theme parks close, whichever is earlier.

    The above was directly from Disney's website. I would take it to mean you can get Disney transportation from any of the 4 parks TO Disney Springs (during the prescribed times) but that buses do not run from Disney Springs to the theme parks, only to the hotels (see below, again from Disney's site).

    Bus service from Disney Resort hotels operates from 45 minutes before opening until 1:00 AM.
    Return service to Disney Resort hotels ends at 2:00 AM

    I have. The location is right across the street from downtown disney. There is a walkway over the road at the corner. Walk to the bus is maybe 10 min. I thought it was easy.

    Wyndham Gardens?? Is this hotel on Hotel Plaza Blvd??? Is it a partner hotel??? If it is, they may have bus service from the hotel to the parks...

    TRICIA JONES: I heard that you were going to propose to Brandi Svenning at some theme park. When are men going to learn that women want ROMANCE, not Mr. Toad's Wild Ride...

    BRODIE: Hey, now, be fair. EVERYONE wants Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.

    If you didn’t want to drive I would bus it to the closest resort from Disney springs to the park your visiting and switch buses. Leaving the parks they go straight to Disney springs
    Too many trips to keep track of now! Vacation WDW twice a year so any questions ask freely ☺️

    We've stayed at several of the Disney partner hotels on Hotel Plaza Blvd. We've walked to the Wyndham from Disney Springs and its a very easy walk. We rented a car from that hotel while staying off-property and I thought it was nice. I didn't see inside a hotel room, but the lobby area is nice and everyone was very friendly. We've stayed at the Hilton Buena Vista Palace which is right across the street from DS and there is a shuttle bus that goes to the parks that services all the Hotel Plaza/ Disney partner hotels. Be sure to check the schedule as they run less frequently than Disney buses, but we found it to be very convenient and also very convenient to walk to DS. Another option is always to walk to the DS bus stop and head to a Disney resort...if you head to the Contemporary its a 5 minute walk to MK. For the money, we love the Disney partner hotels. It is so much more reasonable than Disney hotels, and they all have Disney gift shops and shuttle buses. I think the Wyndham even has a Disney character brunch.

    To clarify- we did a split stay at POR and Hilton GVC Sea World. It worked out great- we took the Magic Express from the airport to POR, then the next day took the DS bus and walked over to the Wyndham to pick up a rental car. It was super convenient and very close to DS. We didn't stay at the Wyndham, but the lobby and landscaping was very nice. I'll have to say the Hilton GVC Sea World was very nice...it was a 12 minute drive to Epcot, and we had a 2 bedroom villa with a full kitchen, 2 bathrooms and a laundry room. And decorated beautifully- granite and marble everywhere. It was about $275 a night for 6 of us. Not quite as close, but so convenient and huge for the price.

    Busing would be better than that of trying to drive and look for a parking space if you drove a car.
