    Do buses go from park to park? And how much time should we allow to meet our reservations. HS to Epcot? AK to HS? and MK to Epcot? Thanks

    Hey, Paulette!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Your trip is right around the corner and I am so excited for you...please take me with you!

    Yes, the convenient and complimentary Walt Disney World Bus Service and other Disney transportation run between theme parks. You will head to the bus stop outside each theme park where a sign will direct you to the appropriate pick-up corral.

    We have never needed more than 50 minutes, including wait time, to travel between theme parks. Disney recommends that you allow 90 minutes between destinations. I budget 60 just to be safe.

    Disney's Hollywood Studios to Epcot is a simple walk (30 minutes) through the Disney's BoardWalk Area or take a FriendShip Boat (30 minutes) from the launch outside the each theme park. The launch outside Epcot in at the International Gateway. A bus (15 minutes) is also available outside Epcot's main entrance.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park to Disney's Hollywood Studios is 25 minutes by bus.

    Magic Kingdom Park to Epcot should be done by using the "highway in the sky," the Walt Disney World Monorail. This takes about 35 minutes. You will need to transfer to the Epcot Monorail at the Transportation and Ticket Center (parking lot for Magic Kingdom Park).

    Disney Dad Tip: Use the "Get Directions" feature on the My Disney Experience Mobile App for the most up-to-date transportation options.

    Paulette, enjoy making many Magical Memories at Walt Disney World Resort.
