    I have enjoyed reading your answers! My family is visiting 12/20 through 12/24. We are not staying on a WD Resort. What is the best solution forgetting from park to park and how long does it take?


    I am assuming you are driving to the parks, or perhaps taking a resort shuttle? Either way, the directions to theme park parking are pretty clear. What is important, especially if you are park hopping, is to know the easy ways to move between parks. Here are a few that I particularly like to use;

    Epcot-to-Hollywood Studios
    There is a boat that links these parks, from the International Gateway at Epcot (commonly known as the 'back door' of the park, by the World Showcase side), to the front gate of Hollywood Studios. The ride hits several resorts, but it doesn't take a full hour, and is a nice, relaxing, and scenic way to move from park to park.

    Magic Kingdom-to-Epcot
    Using monorails, you do have to make a transfer, but it is still the coolest, most stylish way to travel at Walt Disney World!

    Otherwise, you just need to hop on buses to get to where you need to go. If you have a car, it is better to use that, but for many it is more relaxing to park the car at wherever they plan on ending their day, and then using the Disney transportation to move around. I prefer moving my car for both speed and convenience, but either plan makes sense.

    I hope that this helps?

    Have a magical vacation!
