Why you should take the Disney Water Taxi

I am sharing with you Why you should take the Disney Water Taxi. It is one of our favorite modes of transportation at Walt Disney World and it is FREE! You know you don’t get a lot of freebies at Walt Disney World, but this is one.

If you haven’t taken a water taxi at Disney World you are really missing out! You can easily get where you’re going in grand Disney style and enjoy a leisurely cruise on a charming water launch or stately ferryboat.

Turn your travel into a treat on our fleet of boats that’s an attraction in itself. I always tell people THIS is one of the best attractions at Walt Disney World. We always take one while we are on property and forget how amazing it is until we step aboard.

We lucked out because we were the only four on our water taxi besides our driver. You can take in the scenery and relax with the welcome breezes as you sail around Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake. Feel the wind in your hair and the magic in the air as you enjoy your cruise. Water taxis and ferries sail to and from Magic Kingdom Park. Most routes run on 15- to 30-minute intervals.

How to Use Walt Disney World Water Transportation

Simply wait at one of the convenient and well-marked pickup points throughout Walt Disney World Resort. Your ride will then arrive—usually within minutes—ready to transport you to a variety of destinations. Keep in mind that certain destinations are not direct; you may be required to take a connecting mode of transportation to reach your destination.

On our recent trip we took the Water Taxi from Disney Springs to Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter so we could enjoy the delicious gluten free beignets.
