    how do you get between parks and if you have the hopper pass is the transportation included in the pass

    All aboard! Welcome to planDisney, Hana. Your Walt Disney World Resort adventure is just around the corner, and I'm excited to help you make the most of it. I hope you've packed your bags with all things Disney, because we're about to embark on a magical journey utilizing Disney Transportation to explore the theme parks during your visit. 

    All guests at Walt Disney World have access to a range of complimentary transportation options that make getting around a breeze. With the Park Hopper option on your theme park tickets, Disney Transportation can help you make the most of your time in the parks. Simply head to the transportation mode you need, follow the signage to the waiting area, and you'll be on your way to the next park in no time. It's like having your own magic carpet!

    Depending on the theme parks you're traveling between, you'll have the choice of riding a bus, boat, monorail, or skyliner. Since not all of these serve every theme park, my tip is to familiarize yourself with the available options for each park before arriving.

    For example, the Disney Skyliner provides transportation to Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT, so it's the quickest way to travel between those parks. Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is only accessed by bus, so you'll look for signs and head for the designated bus stop to any other theme park. 

    Planning your inter-park travel is key to maximizing your time inside the theme parks. The My Disney Experience mobile app is a valuable tool you can use to help. Tap the location pin icon at the bottom of your screen, filter by your current location, and choose 'Transportation' from the dropdown menu at the top. Tap on the area you're leaving from and then select "Get Directions." Enter your destination on the next screen to see available transportation options and estimated travel times for each. 

    You can also ask for help at any Guest Relations location. Cast Members will be happy to share tips to get you to your next park quickly and easily. Remember that the Park Hopper option currently allows you to park hop at any time of day and visit as many parks as you like. 

    My favorite mode of travel is the monorail. This sleek, futuristic ride on rails reminds me of Walt Disney's vision for his parks. I recently stayed at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and my friends and I had a monorail car to ourselves one evening. We danced and enjoyed the nighttime view as we sailed around the monorail loop. It was pure magic!

    Hana, I hope you have a blast IN the theme parks and getting AROUND the theme parks! Please stop by planDisney anytime. I'll save a seat for you!

    Magic awaits,
