I was on the #50 bus the other day, and I noticed that the bus stop is still there right in front of the Hilton. Walk out of Downtown Disney Marketplace, at the
corner of Hotel Plaza Blvd and cross the street so your back is to the Hilton. The # 50 bus will pick you up right there, and if it is on time, it should be there about 48 or 18 past the hour, so it is about a 20 minute trip. You should be at Sea World about 08 or 38 past the hour. Once you are dropped off, you will have a bit of a short walk to get to Sea World. Don't expect to be dropped off at the door. I think you must walk across the parking lot.



I'm not sure what Disney store or what mall you would like to go to.

I do know you can get off the #50 at Sea World and transfer (transfers are free) and catch a # 8 but to either the Orlando Premium Outlet Mall, or go the other way with the #8 bus to Orlando Premium Outlet International Drive. The Orlando Premium Outlet International Drive is a bit bigger, but both have Character outlet shops, for discounted Disney merchandise. If you have any questions, the bus driver is usually pretty good and helpful to help you transfer or tell you which stop to go to.

By the way, the Lynx bus is $2.00 each way, or $4.50 for an all day bus pass.

party of 8 with 2 carseats

We would really like to get to Sea World on our Oct. 2014 trip but we will have 8 people including 2 toddlers that still need car seats. We are not interested in taking the public bus. I called the cab company and we could take 2 vans but they can't guarantee availability of car seats. Has anyone had experience with this? Also, I thought I read a page or 2 back that someone had a van/shuttle service for a party of 10. Does anyone know which company does this?

Mears Transportation offers a "luxury van" which will accommodate your entire party. I just ran a quote (using a June Saturday for pricing purposes....I think October is too far away to reserve just yet) and it was $43 each way with no discount (there is currently a promo running for 10% off if you book online....not sure if that will still be offered when you reserve). There is a space that asks "do you need a car seat?" when you get to the "Travel Details" section of the booking page.

For pricing, I used the assumption of leaving from Downtown Disney. If you are planning on getting picked up from another location, the price may be slightly different.

The cost works out to $10.75 pp before tax and tip.

Yes, it's still available, we are arriving in a few weeks and plan a day at aquatica. The #50 bus runs around every 20 minutes from dtd and costs $2.00 one way. We did this 4 yrs ago and it was fine, only about a twenty minute ride. If you Google lynx bus transportation you'll find their website.

Oh great.. Yes, we will be there in little over a month. Now which side of DTD will the Lynx bus be on? Now will it be #50 from Seaworld back to DTD or another bus #? Trying to get my notebook all ready before we leave so I won't be losing any time trying to find out everything there.
