    What are all the possible forms of transportation to International Gateway? We are staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge if that is helpful. I know we can boat it from Hollywood Studios to that entrance, but was not sure if there were other options.

    Jambo Michelle,
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope you're preparing for a wild stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. It is almost unreal to look out your windows and see the animals grazing on the savanna. I loved sitting on the balcony with my coffee and watching the animals greet the day. 

    When you are traveling from Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge to the parks, your Resort Transportation is going to be a bus. If you are traveling from Disney's Hollywood Studios to or from Epcot or any of the surrounding resorts, you do have a few options. The Friendship Boats travel between Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot's International Gateway making stops at resorts along the way. You can also easily walk between the two parks. 

    The most fun way to travel to and from the International Gateway at Epcot is the new Disney Skyliner. The gondola system connects Epcot's International Gateway and Disney's Hollywood Studios with one transfer. You can also reach Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney's Pop Century Resort, Disney's Art of Animation Resort, and the latest resort hotel to open, Disney's Riviera Resort. At first, I was a little wary of the gondola system but the Disney Skyliner is a fun, fast way to get where you need to go. 

    Michelle, thank you for visiting us with your question. I hope you'll let us know if we can help you with any other planning questions before your visit.
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
