    Hi Ronnie,

    There is a bus that runs between Animal Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios, but I'm not sure it's the "quickest" method. If you don't have a personal car, and aren't interested in a taxi, the bus is your only option between those two parks. Be sure to give yourself a good window of time for traveling between parks and resorts. When you are figuring out how much time you will need to travel between parks and resorts there are a few things you need to remember. 
    1. How long it takes to get to the bus stop. Whether this is from your hotel room or from the back of a park, it will take time to get to the stop. 
    2. Buses run approximately every twenty minutes. Sometimes the timing is a bit off and there is always the possibility of arriving at the bus stop only to see your desired bus driving off (always a heart breaking moment!) 
    3. How long it will take to get to your desired destination from where you arrive. Whether you are traveling to a park, resort, or dining reservation, it will take time to walk from the bus stop to your destination.

    From the Magic Kingdom park to Disney's Hollywood Studios, you will need to take the monorail or ferry back to the Ticket and Transportation Center(TTC). Once you are at the TTC, you can catch a bus to Hollywood Studios. 

    The only Disney transportation available between Old Key West and Disney's Hollywood Studios is a bus. Boats run from Hollywood Studios to the Epcot area resorts (Swan and Dolphin, Yacht & Beach Clubs, Boardwalk) and to Epcot. 

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I hope you have a magical vacation with smooth transportation!
