Went with a good friend who also grew up in Orlando in the 1970’s and 1980’s. It was a trip back in time to see the old Orlando that we used to know and loved.

You should take an Uber because the Lynx is the bus system, however because Orlando is spread out and downtown is about 30 minutes distance from Disney area, you will spend possibly hours getting from there to downtown.
