    coming to visit in a few weeks... just wanted to make sure to park hop between park, other than mk and epcot, we would need to take a bus from the park to the trans center, or a hotel, and then take a bus to the park we want to go to?? not so easy to hop..

    Hi Jill!

    The Magic Kingdom and Epcot are connected via a monorail between the two.  Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios are connected via a boat that runs between the two.  Disney's Hollywood Studios is connected to the other theme parks by Disney buses.  Disney's Animal Kingdom is fairly isolated.  To get from it to another theme park, except Disney's Hollywood Studios, you would first go to a resort or the Transportation and Ticket Center.  You can also take taxis to get from one theme park to another theme park quickly.

    There is no doubt that park hopping takes some time using Disney transportation.  I definitely suggest that you visit at most two parks on the same day.  Where park hopping really comes in handy is if you spend the entire morning and afternoon in one park and then want to hop to another park for the evening; many guests also like park hopping to Epcot for dinner because it has so many great places to dine.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
