    Is it faster or easier to get From Hollywood Studios to the Animal Kingdom by taking your own car or the Disney bus-Plan is to do DHS in the AM,then head over to AK in PM, so if bus we would have to take it back to pick up car-maybe easier to just drive?

    Hey there Lynda and welcome to planDisney!

    Park Hopping always makes for an exciting time at the Walt Disney World Resort. There are so many ways to make your Disney days work for you with this fabulous ticket option. The day I visited Disney's Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park all in a 14-hour span is one I'll never forget! Let's talk you through the best options on how to maximize your visit.

    One of the modes of Disney Transportation that I've personally utilized the most is the bus. They've been incredibly convenient for me and my family over the years. One thing you'll need to know is that the buses don't run from park to park. You would have to catch one from Disney's Hollywood Studios to a Disney Resorts Collection hotel first and then catch another from there to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. As you may have guessed this way would take up a lot of valuable time that could be spent watching Finding Nemo: The Big Blue...and Beyond! or riding Avatar Flight of Passage. For this reason, I would strongly suggest hopping in your car. Also at the end of the night when you're completely worn out, it'll be a breeze to head home. 

    Pro-tip: When you pay the parking fees at Disney's Hollywood Studios that morning, you've paid your fees for the entire day! Just show your receipt from earlier to the Cast Member inside the parking booth and they'll let you right on in. 

    Lynda, I hope I've cleared up any confusion for you. If you have any other questions about how to make this visit the best one yet, come back for another chat! 

    Happy planning!
