Getting Around Orlando-Walt Disney World

The best way to get around Orlando is with a car, but the best way to experience Disney World is on foot. Orlando's top things to do, as well as its hotels, sprawl across the city's 101 square miles not to mention the fact that Disney World is actually in a different city, Lake Buena Vista. You can rent cars in Orlando, but you can also find them at Orlando International Airport (MCO).

If you do grow fatigued, Disney offers a host of free options for moving between the parks and hotels, including bus, monorail and ferry boat routes.
