    Hello, My question is regarding transportation. We're staying at WL, planning day at MK and then to DD for La Nouba Cirque Du Soleil 9pm show. What is best way to get to DD from MK? Is there direct transportation back to WL after the show?

    Hi Deborah,

    There are a few options when it comes to getting to the Downtown Disney Area from Magic Kingdom Park using Walt Disney World Resort bus transportation.  Here are my top two choices:

    •After exiting the Magic Kingdom Park, take the path towards Disney’s Contemporary Resort.  There you can wait for a bus heading to the Downtown Disney area.  The walk is approximately 10 minutes.

    •The second option would be to take a bus from Magic Kingdom Park to Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa.  When you reach the Congress Park bus stop at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, exit the bus and take the walkway over to the Downtown Disney area.  The walkway will lead you near The Art of Animation Shop in the Downtown Disney’s Marketplace area.  

    As a friendly reminder, always allow at least one hour of transportation time.  

    After you have enjoyed La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil show (and maybe done some shopping or eating at the many stores and restaurants available in the area), you can return to the Downtown Disney Marketplace bus stop and head directly back “home” to Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.  Resort buses usually operate until 2:00 a.m. from the Downtown Disney area, but be sure to check the schedule upon arrival.  You may also consider taking a taxi cab back to your resort if you prefer.

    I hope you find this information useful.  If you have any questions or need any additional information, please let me know.
