    Regarding the busses for the hotels to the theme parks, do any of the hotel busses drop off at the Transportation Center, also? My daughter wants to take the ferry to the MK. & is there 1 entrance or 2 for Epcot? Isn't there a boat that goes to Epcot?

    Hi Jeff,

    There are some Disney buses that drop off at the Transportation and Ticket Center, depending on where you're coming from.  But what I think you're asking is if any of the resort transportation buses marked "Magic Kingdom" first stop at the TTC. The answer to that is no.

    If your daughter really wants to take the ferry, I do have a work-around, but it will take much longer. She could take a bus to the MK and from there hop on the monorail, taking it two stops to the TTC. She would be backtracking, but could do this. There are some buses from the other theme parks that stop at the TTC for example, at the Animal Kingdom, there is bus that goes directly to the TTC.

    Yes, there are two entrances to Epcot. The main entrance is located near the big "golf ball" Spaceship Earth in Future World. This entrance is accessible via bus and monorail.

    The second entrance is called the International Gateway. It is located between the England and France pavilions in the World Showcase. The Gateway is used primarily by guests staying in the Epcot area resorts - Yacht & Beach Club, Swan & Dolphin, and Boardwalk; however, anyone is welcome to enter the park here. Most guests approach the Gateway on foot, but there is a line of Friendship boats that circles the Epcot resorts and deposits guest near this entrance. The Friendship boats are much smaller than the Magic Kingdom ferry.

    There is also Friendship boat transportation between Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot via the International Gateway.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have additional questions.
