    Park Hopping one day. (12/14) Spending AM in Hollywood Studios (opens 8:00 am). Have first Fastpass scheduled at 12:30 pm. in Animal Kingdom Best way to get there and when should we leave HS? Thinking bus to AKL/ bus to the park. Right? Timing?

    Hi Catherine!

         I have great news for you because there is actually a Disney bus that goes directly from Hollywood Studios to the Animal Kingdom.  It is about a 10 to 15 minute ride once you are on the bus. Buses typically come approximately every 20 minutes so I would recommend leaving Hollywood Studios between 11:00 am to 11:30 am (leave by 11:30 am at the latest).  Once you get to Animal Kingdom, you still need to go through bag check and the entry touch points (the touch points have replaced the turnstiles with the new My Magic + system for entry into the Parks) and then you will have to walk to the attraction that you have a FastPass for which will take some time as well.  Your back up transportation plan could be take a bus from Hollywood Studios to the Animal Kingdom Lodge  and then transfer to a bus that is heading from the Animal Kingdom Lodge to the Animal Kingdom (this route will take a lot longer).

    I hope that your next Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
