    Hi, I'm taking my 2 kids to WDW in Feb. We haven't been in 7 yrs. I used to know my way around but so much has changed since then. I have a few questions. What's the easiest way to get from Coronado Springs to HS and AK- car, bus, walk?

    Hi Janine,

    Welcome home! You are going to find so many new things to enjoy during this Walt Disney World visit, starting right at your resort. Coronado Springs has just completed a re-imagining that includes the addition of the Gran Destino Tower, Toledo -- Tapas, Steak and Seafood, Barcelona Lounge, Three Bridges Bar & Grill and more. 

    Since your last visit, the theme parks have added more than just a few new rides or shows. They've added entire lands. Wait until you explore Pandora -- the World of Avatar at Animal Kingdom; visit Batuu in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Hollywood Studios; and play in Andy's back yard in Toy Story Land.

    It's a whole new world indeed!

    At Coronado Springs, you will be near both Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios, but neither is within walking distance. Each park is less than a 10 minute bus ride away from the resort, and the bus drops you right at the park entrances. We always choose the bus over our car for that reason. Plus, on vacation, I'm happy to sit back and let someone else do the driving.

    Since your last visit was seven years ago, you may have other questions about FastPass+, MagicBands, My Disney Experience and more. Please don't hesitate to stop back by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any and all questions as you make your plans. We're here to help.
