    I plan to visit the Fantasia Mini Golf after the parks close on my next trip, but how can I get back to Pop Century if Hollywood Studios and Epcot close at 9, but mini golf is open till 10?

    Hi, Chelsea! Welcome to planDisney! 

    Popping over to Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf after a day at the theme parks sounds like a fantastic way to wrap up your Disney day! The timing may be a bit tricky, but I'm sure we can help you hit a hole-in-one when it comes to getting around the Walt Disney World Resort! 

    Disney transportation usually continues running about 90 minutes or so after the theme parks close. With that in mind, we'll try to get you to Disney's Hollywood Studios after your round, since I'd expect transportation to run until about 10:30.

    First of all, you can try walking over to the dock at the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel to board one of the Friendship Boats to Disney's Hollywood Studios. If your timing is good, you can catch the boat quickly and be on your way to the bright lights of Hollywood for the next leg of your journey. However, if you don't want to wait, or the next boat is running a little behind, you can walk right across the bridge to the footpath that takes you straight to Disney's Hollywood Studios. It's about a 15-minute walk at a fairly brisk pace.

    Once you've arrived, you can jump aboard the Disney Skyliner and fly back to Disney's Pop Century Resort - and if you happen to miss the Skyliner, the buses will sometimes run a little later. I'd check with a transportation Cast Member early in the day to see what they recommend. They know exactly what the operational schedule looks like, so they'll give you the best advice to make sure you can catch a ride.

    Alternatively, you can always use a ride share service like Uber or Lyft to take you straight back to your Resort hotel. That would be the quickest - and probably least complicated - option.

    I hope this helps you have fun unwinding with a little golf after a long day in the parks, Chelsea! Be sure to swing on by again if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
