    I'm renting a car during my stay at POFQ in June. I may alternate between the Disney bus and the car. Which parks would you recommend I drive to and/or take the Disney transportation.


    I usually have a car during our trips to Walt Disney World.  In my opinion, it is much faster to drive your car to anywhere you need to go except for the Magic Kingdom.  Of course, I'm not including scenarios such as you're staying at the Beach Club Resort and you want to know the fastest way to Epcot (which in that case is to walk the 5 minute walk to the International Gateway entrance of Epcot).

    The Magic Kingdom is the only possible exception to this rule because when you drive yourself, you don't end up in front of the Magic Kingdom.  Instead, the parking lot is in front of the Transportation and Ticket Center (TT&C).  After parking your car in the Magic Kingdom lot, you have to walk or take a tram to the TT&C.  Then you take a monorail or a ferry to the Magic Kingdom.  Disney Transportation, on the other hand, would take you directly to the Magic Kingdom.

    Have a magical vacation!
