    We are staying at BLT. Is there any way to enter and exit MK other than the front gate in order to walk more directly to BLT? If we want to leave MK midday for Downtown Disney what's the quickest route and how long approximately would that take?

    Hi Nancy,

    There is only one entrance/exit to the Magic Kingdom. (The only park with two entrances is Epcot.) I've stayed at BLT and walked to the Magic Kingdom many times. It's actually quite convenient. I've found that walking is often quicker than taking the monorail. I can usually do it in about 7 minutes.

    There is no direct transportation from the MK to Downtown Disney. Your best bet is to walk (or take the monorail) back to the Contemporary and grad a bus from there to DD. It may take a bit less time, but I would budget about 45 minutes to get from the MK to DD.

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