    whats the fastest way to go from disney studios to the magic kingdom? how do you tell the difference in registered cabs and unregistered cabs to make this trip?

    Hi, Joe!

    There are several ways to travel park-to-park. Here are some options:

    -Standard bus transportation: Each bus stop will be labeled for its destination. Simply head to the correct bus stop number and a bus will zoom you to your destination. Buses run about every 20 minutes. Bus depots are located at the front entrance of each theme park.

    -Express Transportation: For a fee (daily or multi-day pricing available) you can take Express Transportation that picks you up and drops you off inside the main gates, avoiding having to wait in lines to reenter a park. Buses run on a set schedule so you know when the next bus is on its way.

    -Taxi service is available for a fee. Taxis at Disney's Hollywood Studios are lined up and waiting, so you can simply hop in and go at any time. If taking a taxi, I would have your driver drop you off at Disney's Contemporary Resort and take the 10-12 minute walk over to the Magic Kingdom.

    So what's the quickest? Probably Express Transportation, just because you know when the bus will pick you up and you get drop you off inside the main gates. However, the actual difference in total time among any of the options is maybe 15 minutes or so, so whatever option you choose, you are not talking a huge difference. Travel times always vary, so allow plenty of time to transfer between parks.

    Have a magical day as you hop from park to park during your visit to Walt Disney World!
