    Just found out that a friend's grandson is playing w/ his hs orchestra at Disney Springs on Thanksgiving. We have FP for MK that morning - can we take the bus from MK to DS to see him? If not, what is the easiest way to get to DS? Thanks!

    Hi Jeanie,

    It's so special to see someone you know perform in a parade or show at Walt Disney World. How great that your friend's grandson's performance coincides with your vacation!

    Recently, the theme parks started offering complimentary transportation to Disney Springs, but not until 4 p.m. each day. If you need to go earlier than that, I would suggest that you walk from Magic Kingdom to the Contemporary to catch a bus to Disney Springs. The walk takes about 10 minutes and the walkway leads directly to the Contemporary bus station.

    I would allow at least 90 minutes to make the trip, especially since it is a holiday. If you arrive at Disney Springs early, there's plenty to do: shopping, snacking and more.

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question, Jeanie. Please let us know if we can help in any other way as you finalize your plans. Enjoy your holiday!
