Luke here. Fallon covered the free transport.  Of which there is a lot. If you’re looking to stay off site, or should you need/choose to get from Point A to Point B – there are options too.

Mears Taxi – A Taxi company. They do Taxi stuff.  Classic. Tried Tested and True. Their rates aren’t bad. But it’s  the 2017/2018 season – who uses cabs anymore?

The easiest, quickets and most convenient non-free way to get around is via Uber or Lyft – for those unfamiliar, they’re both apps on your phone. You set up an account, attach a credit card, and whenever you need a ride just open the app. Punch in where you want to go and it’ll tell you the exact cost of the trip up front. It’ll give you the make/model of he vehicle picking you up, the license plate # and a timeline on when the ride will be there. You can watch on the app’s generated map as the ride approaches. It’s the best. Use it to get from park to park, to your dining reservations, to go to the grocery store and buy bananas for less than $1.69US apiece – whatever.

Also – if you want to get from park to park Disney World offers an express transit bus for an upcharge. It’s $19/day or $29 for a multi-day ticket.  We haven’t used it yet. But if you’re at Epcot and need to get to Magic Kingdom in a jiffy – this seems super handy.
