    Do buses run from one park to another, for example Animal Kingdom to Epcot, or do you have to take a bus from the 1st park to a resort and then get on another bus to go to the next park?

    There is plentiful, free transportation between all the Disney parks. The mode of transportation between each of the parks is a bit different, but it's simple once you get the hang of it. There are info stands near the transportation areas of the parks, so if you need help, don't hesitate to ask.

    Here's a summary of how to get around:

    - Magic Kingdom to Epcot: monorail or boat to the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC), then transfer to the Epcot monorail line
    - MK to Animal Kingdom: monorail or boat to TTC, then bus
    - MK to Disney's Hollywood Studios: monorail or boat to TTC, then bus
    - Epcot to MK: monorail to TTC, then transfer to MK monorail
    - Epcot to Animal Kingdom: bus
    - Epcot to DHS: bus (from the front entrance), boat (from the back entrance), walk (from the back entrance)
    - AK to MK: bus to TTC, then monorail or boat
    - AK to Epcot: bus
    - AK to DHS: bus
    - DHS to MK: bus to TTC, then monorail or boat
    - DHS to AK: bus
    - DHS to Epcot: bus, boat or walk

    All the buses and boat are clearly marked as to where they are going.

    I think the parks are all equally easy to get to from each other, but a few of the "commutes" are more interesting than the others. The monorail ride is fun (so the MK/Epcot commute is entertaining). And the boat between Epcot/DHS is very pleasant and fairly quick.

    Getting from the parks to Downtown Disney is more complicated. For that, you do need to take transportation to a resort and then transfer to a DD bus.

    Have a great trip!
