Even for experienced visitors, knowing how to travel from each Disney property to the other can get a bit overwhelming.

    1. Walk to the Boardwalk And Take the Disney Bus

    The best free way to travel from EPCOT to Disney Springs is by walking to Disney's Boardwalk Inn Resort which is about a 7-minute walk (0.3 miles), and then taking a Disney Springs Bus from the Boardwalk Inn Resort to Disney Springs.

    What to Know About the Boardwalk Walking Path

    After exiting the EPCOT park from the EPCOT International Gateway (under the Skyliner station between the United Kingdom and France), you'll make a left, and follow the path down until you reach the Boardwalk Resort.

    The best part of this route is that you'll pass delicious places along the way, more specifically Boardwalk Ice Cream on your left-hand side, and the beautiful Crescent Lake on your right.

    Once you arrive at the Boardwalk Inn Resort, you'll look for the Disney Bus loop, and then take a look at the bus directory to find the bus headed to Disney Springs.

    Disney Buses are complimentary for all guests and allow visitors the ability to travel in comfort (and AC) as they transition from one park to the other.

    In general, you can use any Disney Bus at a resort to take you to and from Disney Springs.

    Unfortunately, there is no direct transportation from Disney Springs to the theme parks, or vice versa, meaning that you'll have to take a connecting transportation to the resort first.

    2. Take the Ferry Boat From EPCOT to Disney Springs

    If you love being on the water and don't mind moving at a slower pace (30-35 minutes in total), the Ferry Boat may be another alternative for you.

    The Ferry Boat takes visitors through a unique lens, allowing them to see all of the Disney Resorts on the way to Disney Springs. 

    The best parts of this ride are sailing near beautiful Swan/Dolphin Resorts and the boardwalk.

    3. Consider Booking the Minnie Van Service

    Another (paid) option to consider is taking the unique Minnie Van Service car!

    The Minnie Van Service is a Disney-themed car driven by Disney Cast members that can take guests to their designated Disney park in style and comfort.

    Each vehicle accommodates up to 6 Guests.

    Guests will simply use the Lyft app to schedule their rides as they normally would with one specific change.

    They will select 'Minnie Van Service' over the other options (Lyft, Lyft XL, etc).

    How to Book the Minnie Van Service

    Minnie Van Service operates from 6:30 AM to 12:30 AM daily.

    To request a ride through the Lyft app:

    • Open the app and select Disney Springs as the drop-off location. 
      • It makes no difference whether you choose the Eastside Bus Loop or West Side Bus Loop. It will just drop you off on a different side of Disney Springs.
      • drop off location animal kingdom
    • Confirm your pick-up location (EPCOT) and tap “Select Minnie Van”
    • The app will then show a map with available Minnie Van drivers tracking the vehicle en route—along with an identifying vehicle number to help you spot your car
