    What is my best course of action to get from Pop Century to AKL to AbracadaBar on the Boardwalk and back to Pop Century? What is the best way to get from Hollywood Studios to ESPN and then to Pop Century?

    Hiya, Brittany! Welcome to planDisney! Let's take a trip around the "World" at the Walt Disney World Resort! 

    I used to work in transportation, so you could say I have an affinity for all things that drive, float, and fly. After all, the journey can be almost as fun as the destination, especially when we're talking about Disney!

    Before digging into the details of Disney transportation, I should note that the quickest way to travel to all of these points of interest will undoubtedly be a ride share service like Lyft or Uber. But if you want to keep it free and travel Disney-style, here we go!

    The first leg of our trip, from Disney's Pop Century Resort to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, will be by bus. Since buses don't travel directly between Resort hotels, however, you'll need to take the bus to Disney's Animal Kingdom Park first, then transfer to another bus that will take you to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. If you're trying to make it for a dining reservation, be sure to build a little extra time into your itinerary. 

    Next, it looks like we're heading from Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge to Disney's BoardWalk. Again, this is going to mean hopping to Disney's Animal Kingdom Park, and then catching another bus to the BoardWalk.

    It gets a lot easier going back "home" to Pop Century! From AbracadaBar, just walk over to the Disney Skyliner station right outside the International Gateway entrance to EPCOT. There, you'll take flight aboard a gondola back to Disney's Pop Century Resort. Be sure to keep an eye on the time, though, since the Disney Skyliner only runs for about 90 minutes or so after EPCOT closes for the night.

    The ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex is very close to your Resort hotel, but buses usually only run there when an event is going on. You'll probably want to chat with a Cast Member at the front desk to see what may be available.

    Brittany, with your trip only a few weeks away, you must be getting so excited! I hope you have fun exploring the Walt Disney World Resort, and do come see us again if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
