    Will be at the AK on 1/30. Is there an opening parade event at the AK? Also is it possible to walk from Hollywood Studio to Epcot through the International Gateway entrance? If not, is there any direct transportation from these 2 locations? Luv the panel!!

    Hi Denise!

    I have to admit I've not seen the Animal Kingdom opening ceremony in quite a while, so the specifics may have changed.  It used to be called 'Let the Adventure Begin' and The 'Fab Four' characters put on a little song and dance show from vehicles in front of the Tree of Life.  It might have a different theme now, but there is still an official opening of some sort.

    You can certainly walk between Hollywood Studios and Epcot; in fact, it's a very nice 15-20 minute stroll that we really enjoy taking.  It will bring you alongside the Boardwalk resort and you will walk down the Boardwalk and over the bridge into the International Gateway.  If you prefer, there is boat transportation as well.

    Have a great vacation!
