WDW Trip Part Four: Transportation

Note: this post ("WDW Trip") has Four Parts:
POR boat to DTD
WDW Transportation:
Port Orleans Riverside is owned by WDW so we will have free transportation throughout our stay.  Buses will take us where we need to go each day, but there is a boat option to get to Downtown Disney, which we will definitely take advantage of!

The Swan & Dolphin are located in a primo spot for getting around WDW. We can walk or take a short boat ride to EPCOT and Hollywood Studios. To get to MK we like to stroll through EPCOT and hop on the Monorail, but there are buses too.  For AK there are no options except the bus, but that park is always a half-day for us so it’s no biggie.

Magic Express - Free is good!
Airport Transportation: 
Magic Express: Love this free airport service. Since we’re staying at POR for the first half of our trip we can use ME Service to get from Orlando Airport to the resort.  Totally stress-free is the way to be!

Mears Shuttle: Since we’re staying at the Swan (on Disney property but not Disney owned) through our departure date, we will use the Mears shuttle service to get back to the airport, which looks like it will be $21 per person for the one way trip.

Cost: Mears Shuttle to Airport $21 x 2 = $42 (plus tip)
