Disney World is one of the most magical places on Earth, but navigating such a large complex can be overwhelming, especially for first-time visitors. To make things easier, I have designed a subway-style transportation map of Walt Disney World Resort that will help you get around quickly and easily. This map includes all modes of transportation, such as monorails, boats, buses, and the new Skyliner.
With this user-friendly subway-style transportation map of Walt Disney World Resort, your vacation is going to be even smoother. And guess what? The map is designed in Harry Beck’s style! If you’re wondering what that means, let me fill you in: Harry Beck was the creator of the London Underground’s iconic modernist map. Beck realized that passengers were not trying to follow representations of the geographic world above ground, but rather navigate from stop to stop relatively speaking. And that idea completely transformed how underground transit maps are designed today.
Read on to learn more about the different modes of transportation and how this map can make your vacation even smoother.
