    If I take the bus to Downtown Disney from my resort, can I then go from Downtown Disney to the Disney Theme Park or do I need to go back to my resort, and catch the bus? How do I have a transportation schedule.

    Hi Mitzi! The Disney buses run between Downtown Disney and the resort hotels, but there is no direct bus transportation from Downtown Disney to the parks. If you wish to visit a park after a trip to Downtown Disney, you're right that you'll need to first take a bus to a resort and then transfer to a bus heading to one of the parks. You can choose to return to your own resort, or you can take a bus to a resort that's close to the park you wish to visit, and then hop on a bus, boat, or monorail from there. When you check in to your resort, you'll receive information on transportation at Walt Disney World. It's really quite easy to get around! If you'd like to see your transportation options before your trip, the unofficial site has a fun "Transportation Wizard" on its site that lets you see routes to and from various destinations in Walt Disney World. 

    If you're in a hurry to hit the parks, taxis are also readily available at Downtown Disney and they can take you directly to one of the parks.

    Have a magical vacation! Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We're happy to help!
