    If I drive myself to Animal Kingdom, then take a bus to Hollywood Studios, is there another but to take me back to AK at the end of the day?

    Welcome to planDisney, Montana.

    It's wonderful to see a Guest from the great state of Washington! Along with Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, and Space Mountain, Mount Rainier is on my list of all-time favorite mountains. I'm actually hoping to camp there with my family this summer. "The mountains are calling and I must go!" 

    Anyway, in the words of The March Hare, "I have an excellent idea! Let's change the subject." If you're planning on parking your car at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, then when it comes time to "hop" to Disney's Hollywood Studios, I personally wouldn't use the Disney Bus Transporation Service. Here's why: Disney's Animal Kingdom closes at 7:00 p.m on the day of your planned visit. Since the Disney buses generally run until about an hour after the Theme Parks close, you'll likely have trouble getting back to Disney's Animal Kingdom if you stay at Disney's Hollywood Studious until the park closes (9:00 p.m.).

    But here's the good news: Guests pay one fee for a parking pass. And that pass is good all day at all four Theme Parks. You'll just need to keep your receipt and show it to a Cast Member when you park at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Hakuna Matata, Montana!

    One more thing: just make sure you make Theme Park reservations for Disney's Animal Kingdom on the day of your visit. You'll also want to have the Park Hopper Option on your ticket if you want to visit more than one park on the same day.

    There are so many incredible rides at Disney's Hollywood Studios. My family really enjoy Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway last summer. And of course, you simply must experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. I'm sure you'll have a magical time.

    See ya real soon!
