You should allow plenty of time to reach your destination in case of traffic and be aware that it can be hard to find parking in some spots.

Several shuttles also operate around Orlando and there are lots of bus routes that cover downtown and beyond. The I-Ride Trolley connects many places of interest and can be useful for tourists who don’t have their own cars. You can buy one-day and multi-day passes in many locations.
