Disney World Water Transportation runs complimentary Disney boats that connect Magic Kingdom to Magic Kingdom resorts and the Transportation & Ticket Center; and Epcot resorts to Hollywood Studios, Disney's BoardWalk and Epcot.
Water launches (water taxis) circulate directly between Magic Kingdom and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Disney's Polynesian Resort; a second route connects Magic Kingdom to Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground and Disney's Wilderness Lodge; and a third route, utilizing 600-passenger ferries, connects Magic Kingdom to the Transportation & Ticket Center.
Boats also loop between Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Disney's BoardWalk, Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts, and Walt Disney World® Swan & Dolphin Resorts.
Finally, boats connect Disney Springs to Disney Springs resort hotels.
Everything at Disney World is accessible by a free bus, but not all destinations are directly connected. Buses from Disney Springs, for example, do not connect directly to any theme parks. To this end, some routes may involve a combination of bus, monorail or boat. So-called 'cast members' (that is, staff) are willing to assist.
Three separate monorail routes service select locations within Walt Disney World®. The Resort Monorail loops between the Transportation & Ticket Center, Disney's Polynesian Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, Magic Kingdom and Disney's Contemporary Resort. A second monorail route connects the Transportation & Ticket Center directly to Magic Kingdom; and a third route connects the Transportation & Ticket Center directly to Epcot.
