    Do Disney buses run from park to park after the park hopping window opens? I’m finding conflicting information, and I just want to be sure I am planning accordingly! For example, can I take a bus from Hollywood Studios to Animal Kingdom and vice versa?

    Hey there, Miranda, and welcome back to planDisney! It’s almost time for your Disney Vacation, and I suggest that you let Disney do all of the driving! We’re a road warrior family, so by the time we arrive at our Disney vacation I’m ready to let someone else man the wheel. Luckily, Disney transportation has never let us down!

    Miranda, I looked into your question and was able to find that Walt Disney World Bus Transportation does provide park-to-park service once the park hopping window opens. And thankfully, the My Disney Experience app is a handy skipper and has the perfect navigational tool to help you get from Hollywood Studios to Animal Kingdom once you are ready to park hop. I recommend searching for your destination in the My Disney Experience app to see if the buses are running yet. The app will map out the quickest way to reach your destination with the available transportation options. The app will also tell you your anticipated travel time so you can see if there’s enough time to sneak in a quick (air-conditioned) bus nap! 

    You can follow the steps below to find directions in the app:
    - Open the My Disney Experience App on your mobile device
    - Select the Magnifying Glass icon at the bottom of the screen 
    - Search for your destination
    - Click “Get Directions”
    - Enter your starting location, and the app will display your travel options

    I hope this helps, Miranda! Let me know if you have more questions while planning your vacation.

    You’ve got a friend in me,
