    We are planning a trip in June 2020 and we are not staying in a Disney resort. We are going to be paying to park each day. We have a 4 park hopper pass but I am curious about how we can go from park to park? Does each park have their own lot? is there bus

    Hi Lizzy,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm happy to help you plan your upcoming visit. It will be here before you know it!

    Each of the four Walt Disney World theme parks has extensive parking available for guests who arrive in their personal vehicles. At Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom, you can walk or take a tram directly from the parking lot to the park entrance. At Magic Kingdom, trams and pedestrian walkways lead to the Transportation and Ticket Center, where you will board a monorail or a ferry to reach the entrance to Main Street U.S.A.

    Once you pay the daily parking fee (currently $25 for standard car parking, but subject to change), you can move your car from park to park without paying again. Just make sure you save your receipt.

    You also can leave your car in the first lot and utilize Walt Disney World bus transportation to park hop. My caution on that: If the park where you left your car closes significantly earlier than the park where you end your day, it can be a little complicated to find transportation back to your vehicle. You may need to ask a cast member at the transportation hub for assistance.

    Instead, I'd recommend parking in the morning at the place where you plan to end your day and using transportation to hop to your first destination.

    I hope that's clear, Lizzy. Please let us know if you need more information or have other questions. Wishing you a magical Walt Disney World vacation!
