How do you get from All-Star Sports to Disney Springs?
If you are staying at Disney’s All-Star Sports or planning a future visit, you probably want to know the best ways to get to Disney Springs from the resort.
Below I will detail THREE specific ways you can make this journey. 🙂
Option #1: Take the bus!
Did you know that Disney World provides FREE bus transportation from All-Star Sports to Disney Springs? And the best part is that the bus stop is right outside the main entrance (Stadium Hall). When you walk out of Stadium Hall, just turn right.
At the bus stop, look for the Disney Springs sign so you board the correct bus.
Once you are on the bus, the ride usually takes around 15 minutes to get to Disney Springs. But, there is a possibility that your bus will NOT go directly to Disney Springs. At certain times of the day, your bus may stop to pick up guests at the other two All-Star Resorts (Music and Movies). Obviously, your trip will take longer if the bus makes additional stops.
So how do you know if your bus is going straight to Disney Springs or if it will make additional stops?
Unfortunately, there is no way to know for sure, as Disney changes the bus schedule based on how busy it is. Typically, there will be a separate bus just for All-Star Sports later in the afternoon and evenings, when demand for transportation to Disney Springs is highest. But when it’s slower earlier in the day, buses tend to be shared between the three All-Star Resorts.
Bus service to Disney Springs operates when they are open and ends 1 hour after closing. Once they start, the buses run continuously throughout the day. I have found that you can typically expect a bus to arrive around every 20 minutes.
At the bus stop, you will find a sign showing when the next bus that goes to Disney Springs is expected to arrive. As you can see, when I took this picture, Disney Springs wasn’t open yet, so no bus was scheduled!
As you can imagine, since this does not cost anything extra, it’s the most popular way to travel. However, at certain times of the day, such as around dinner, you might experience a bit of a line to board the bus. So make sure to give yourself plenty of time if you need to arrive at Disney Springs for a reservation or show. Our family usually leaves our room about an hour before we want to arrive, just to be safe.
Option #2: Take an Uber, Lyft, or MINNIE Van
If you don’t want to wait for the bus, it’s very easy to take a taxi from All-Star Sports to Disney Springs. Using this option can save a lot of time, especially earlier in the day when the three All-Star resorts are sharing buses or if there is a LONG line for the buses at dinnertime.
The easiest place to meet your taxi driver is outside near the front lobby of Stadium Hall, as there are plenty of spots for them to stop and for you to get in the car.
The total distance from All-Star Sports to Disney Springs is 5 miles (8 km), and the drive should take about 15 minutes, depending on the amount of traffic.
TWO rideshare companies operate in Disney World – Uber and Lyft. Between them both, there are a lot of drivers cruising around. Almost every time I’ve used a taxi to go to the parks, I’ve had to wait less than ten minutes to get picked up.
One neat thing about using Lyft is that they have partnered with Disney World to provide MINNIE VANS, which are Minnie Mouse-themed mini-vans!
While using the Lyft app inside the resort, choose Disney Springs as your destination. Then order the Minnie Van to come and pick you up!
While using this option is fun, it is more expensive, as you can see above!
Option #3: Drive yourself!
Getting in your car and driving yourself is an often overlooked way to go from All-Star Sports to Disney Springs. It’s probably the fastest way to travel since you don’t have to wait for someone else to pick you up. 🙂
The distance between these two locations is 5 miles (8 km). The drive should take around 15 minutes unless traffic is heavy.
One nice thing about Disney Springs is that parking is FREE! Seriously, it’s rare for anything to be free at Disney World. 🙂
There are multiple parking lots and garages when you arrive at Disney Springs. Make sure you pay attention to where you park, as some of these lots are HUGE, and it can be hard to find your car again.
