Unique ways to get around Disney


Disney california adventure

During any given visit to Disney you have the opportunity to ride several modes of transportation, probably even more than you realize.  It's pretty guaranteed that we will be on a bus, a monorail, and depending on which resort we are staying at or visiting, perhaps even a boat.

The next time you visit Disney, look around you. There are so many ways people are getting from here to there.

We first got to ride the WDW Jitney after the WDW Marathon in 2013. I can't believe I never noticed this ride before.  The Jitney can be found in Magic Kingdom. It takes you from the hub on Main Street to Cinderella's Castle. We were among the first people at the castle and the driver even asked if we wanted him to take a picture of us with it!



The horse drawn trolley is the one thing I have always wanted to ride but have never seen it during my visit at Disney World. I finally got to ride it last month during our visit to Disneyland. It picks riders up at the hub on Main Street and drops them off in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle.

I would have loved to rode this Cable Car at Disney's California Adventure but I didn't get a chance. I'm pretty sure this vehicle makes a loop through the hub on Buena Vista Street to Hollywood land and back.

Now this may be the most luxurious ride in all of Disney World. Cinderella's Glass Carriage only comes out for special occasions, like for weddings. This was probably my favorite mode of Disney transportation. You can see the glass carriage  en route from the Grand Floridian to the wedding pavilion. They use to allow it on the Boardwalk for weddings but I don't know if they do that any more. If you are lucky enough to be a guest at a ceremony inside the Magic Kingdom, you may see it there too!


What is your favorite mode of transportation at Disney?

  1. Cute post. We took all the different main street vehicles back when Christine was young, but have not riden them in years. I actually loved the cable car (like ski lift type) that was in MK many years ago but was removed due to small capacity per hour. You got a great view of the park from above!.

  3. Disneyland no longer has this but they used to have the Skyway. You could ride it from Fantasyland to Tomorrowland. It would even pass through the Matterhorn.

  4. I remember the sky lift in magic kingdom many moons ago. That was back in the day whe you got a booklet with the coveted E tickets too. Thankfully you could purchase additional E tickets.

  5. I love the Main Street vehicles too! My favorite is a lot unconventional, but I love riding in a golf cart around Fort Wilderness during the holidays to check out all the decorations!

  10. I missed out, I only ever rode the bus while there- not even a monorail ride lol

  11. I've never ridden any of the ones on your list. My favourite way to get around at WDW is usually via monorail. I love it!

  13. Fun post! The Monorail was my friend there, that and the bus that took me to the race start:) But seriously, if I could live out my Cinderella fantasy, I would so be taken everywhere in the horse drawn carriage:) Ya, I'd even go from ride to ride of course in a full gown, LOL

  14. As a child, I loved the monorail. They used to let you ride up front with the drivers. Of course, that's all changed now, but I still love the monorail!

  15. So many choices! The Cinderella Coach would be my dream ride and my favorite way to get around is the monorail. Thanks for sharing and for joining in the blog hop fun!

  16. We used to just run from one end of the park to another! Of course I'd be all over Cinderella's carraige

  17. I love taking the train around the park at Disneyland. It's so archaic but that makes it entertaining.

  18. I love riding the train around the outside and also the monorail. Neither are unconventional, but still like them. Loved the skyway when I was kid. Cinderella's carriage is the real way to travel Disney in style though, I must admit.
