Transportation from Miami to Orlando?
I'll be going on vacation visiting some family in Miami in a couple weeks, and I'll be making my first ever visit to Disney World while I'm in Florida. But I was wondering, BESIDES renting a car, what transportation options I have to get to Orlando from
Miami (bus, train, etc.) Any help/advice is appreciated! :)
Re: Transportation from Miami to Orlando?
You can do a shuttle bus, I think it will cost you around $50 to get from Miami to WDW for the trip down, the trip back would be another $30-50 depending on where and how you got back to the shuttle pickup points in Orlando. The down side of that is that you would be having to leave before 5:00am and would still only arrive at WDW around noon... so if you were planning on doing it as a quick day trip you've lost some prime park time in the process.

I would lean towards a rental car if at all possible, by car its about a 4 hour drive which isn't that bad. Using public transportation will add quite a bit of time and inconvenience to your trip.
