    Specifics regarding driving and parking to each park? For MK, AK, Epcot is it just park and walk/tram to the park entrance or are there more steps (I.e. Walk, tram, bus, ferry and finally you get there)? How long will it take from car to gate entrance?

    Hi Laura! Thanks so much for your question. For Epcot, Disney's Animal Kingdom, and Disney's Hollywood Studios, it is simply a matter of parking and taking the tram, or walking to the park entrance. For Magic Kingdom transportation you will park and take a tram to the Ticket and Transportation Center where you will either take the monorail or ferry to the park entrance. I personally like taking the ferry because it reminds me of when I was little. I was born in Florida and we went to Disney a lot when I was a child, and some of my fondest memories are of seeing Cinderella Castle from the ferry. I have never timed the transportation mainly because it all depends on so many different things. The tram might take longer, you may choose to take the monorail over the ferry, you might walk faster than others, you could be parked further out, so it honestly depends on a multitude of factors. A couple of weeks ago my Mom's Panel friend Brandy B. and I drove to Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios and I would say it took around maybe ten minutes to park and walk/tram to the park entrance. 

    I hope this has been helpful, and if you need anything else, please don't hesitate to ask. Have a magical Walt Disney World vacation!
