    Love this panel! Would you please advise the quickest way to travel between HS & Epcot with 2 toddlers? Is there a direct bus between the 2 parks? We'll stay at BayLakeTower - is it faster to get to HS or Epcot from BLT? Thank you so much!

    Hi Jenny! Sounds like you're planning a fun-filled day for your toddlers! Buses do run between Hollywood Studios and Epcot to make park hopping easy. The bus ride takes about 15 minutes. You can also catch a boat to travel to/from Hollywood Studios and Epcot. The ride takes longer, around 30 minutes, but it can be more convenient if you're coming from or heading to the World Showcase area of Epcot (where the boat docks) since you won't have to walk all the way to the front entrance of Epcot to catch the bus.

    It would probably be easier for you to go directly from one park to the other, rather than returning to the Bay Lake Towers first, but if you want to take a break at your resort between parks, the trip from the resort isn't much longer. The Bay Lake Tower shares transportation to the parks with the Contemporary. The bus ride to Hollywood Studios takes 20 minutes or so, and the monorail ride to Epcot takes about 30. 

    Wishing you a magical vacation! If you have more questions, please come visit us again at the Moms Panel! We're always happy to help!
