Gettingthere.....surely you dont mean that your OH was refused entry into the USA????????? Oh my goodness...if that is correct..how awful for you...

Im afraid I cant help with the bus timetable (if any)...and feel that probably taxis are going to be your only option (as from most villa communities). But thoughts are with you...keep in touch with us and let us know how you are getting on.

Oh my goodness, that is so awful for you all.

I have looked up on this site page and it says that shuttles are available, I haven't delved into the site, but hope there is a contact number where you can book the shuttle. Hope you are able to sort this out very soon. Thinking of you and your family..

I found this information on another site and it has no date, so may be obselete- but perhaps you can see if it still is available:

How does the Windsor Hills Resort daily shuttle service work/operate/etc?

In the sundry shop in the Windsor Hills Resort clubhouse you can find schedules and make arrangements. Shuttle cost is $10 per person round trip to Magic Kingdom, Epcot, MGM, or Animal Kingdom. $14 per person round trip to universal, seaworld, and shopping areas. There is an information sheet at the clubhouse with the time schedule. The shuttle company is MAINGATE TRANSPORTATION. They can be called at # 407-390-0000. A taxi cab to Disney is $20 one way.. cab to Universal is $32 one way.... Don't forget it costs $11 per day for parking at Disney and Universal if you drive, although you can come and go freely from various parks, it's pay just once per day for parking at all of the Disney parks.

Windsor Hills is, as far as I can tell, about 1/2 mile south of US192 in Kissimmee to the west of the World Drive/I4 intersection.

Assuming you are prepared for the 10 minutes or so walk to US192 you can get to/from Disney for $2 each (one way price); or $16 for a week's unlimited use. LYNX buses operate on US192 in this area. The trip to Disney involves a change (transfer).

You can also use LYNX to travel along US192 if you want to go to WalMart or other supermarkets - and to the restaurants and flea markets and so on that populate this strip. The latest buses passing the area where your resort is are in the mid-evening - 8ish - so if you are out late you are going to need a cab. Buses are every 30 minutes.

There is more detail on directions and route numbers and passes and so on, and links to the timetables (schedules) here: tripadvisor.com/Travel-g34515-c125141/Orland…

Hope you get on OK.

What a crappy start to your Holiday. Im glad you got some useful travel info from everyone on here.Using the hotel shuttles is a matter of adjusting as you are used to driving but it will just take a little longer. Hope things get sorted for you and your Hubby joins you asap

I am really shocked as you have visited before. Keep your chin up. We are all thinking of you. At least you have got some info regrading transportation.
