    Disney will only transport you within the Disney parameter and their magical express bus takes you to and from the airport if you are staying on-site.

    I don't think the local bus will go all the way to Tampa. That's more than an hour away. I know you can hire the Mears shuttle to take you.

    Yep, what Johnie said :yes:

    You can however get the special Busch gardens bus from the premium outlet mall just outside downtown disney. For just a very few $s (it really is cheap) you can get there and back no problem. It DOES take a while though!

    I didn't know about the shuttle from the outlet. Do you know who that is through Keith?

    yep! we've taken it a few times.

    It's operated by mears but it's a special Busch gardens shuttle bus service

    The fare for round trip transportation is only $10.00 per person (payable at the Busch Gardens Service Desk once you arrive). Transportation is complimentary with the purchase of the Orlando Flex Ticket Plus.

    Basically you just hop on at premium outlets and when you get to busch gardens you get dropped off by the ticket window and pay for that + return trip. I know it sounds a little weird but thats what you do :lol:

    It's very good value to get all the way there!

    Good info Keith! $10 is a bargain considering what gas is now costing!
