    Hello! My fiance and I are going to Disney for the first time and staying at our timeshare near the parks. Whatbis the best way to get around from park to park if we aren't staying at a Disney World Resort but have a 5 day hopper?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lindsey!

    I am so excited for you that you're about to experience the magic of Walt Disney World Resort for the very first time. There's nothing quite like your first glimpse of Cinderella Castle when you round the bend onto Main Street U.S.A., so be sure to take a moment to stop and take it all in! You only get to see it for the first time once.

    I have great news for you: there is complimentary transportation available for guests to take to all of the theme parks, water parks, Resort Hotels, as well as Disney Springs. Since you have a 5-Day Ticket with Park Hopper Option, that transportation is included for you! You'll be able to take advantage of the complimentary bus, water, and monorail transportation to get you where you need to go. Once you're at a theme park you can pick up transportation to anywhere else you want to go on Walt Disney World Resort property. Did you find an Avatar Flight of Passage FastPass+ when you were having lunch at Magic Kingdom Park? No problem! You can hop right on a bus that takes a direct route to Disney's Animal Kingdom. Want to check out Trader Sam's Grog Grotto after spending the day at Epcot? You can use the monorail to get to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort quickly and easily. You can also use Minnie Van Service to get a door-to-door ride from a friendly Disney Cast Member, or you can also have your favorite rideshare service pick you up and drop you off at designated spots at each theme park.

    I hope this answers your question, Lindsey, and please let us know if there's anything we can to do help you plan your magical vacation!
