    We are staying at Bonnet Creek Resort and need to understand the transportation options to the WDW parks. Can you shed some light on the best approach to the Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios?

    Hi there, Bruce!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question about transportation - I'm happy to help!

    My family absolutely LOVES staying at Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek. We've visited numerous times since my girls were young, and had wonderful stays every time. The pool alone is worth staying there - it's amazing! I'll always remember when we had a pool view room on one of our stays. I opened up the curtains and the word "RELAX" was spelled out in gorgeous green beach towels on the lounge chairs. There was a new word on the chairs each day - it was like Charlotte's Web using beach towels - I loved it. 

    Guests of Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek are able to enjoy complimentary shuttle transportation to all four Walt Disney World Resort theme parks (Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park) and Disney Springs. The Mears motorcoaches run on a scheduled route, and pickup times will typically be posted in your hotel lobby. There is also an online shuttle schedule available at Simply select your pickup date, location, and destination, and you'll be able to see all the pickup times for that day. For example, I searched pickup times from your hotel to Animal Kingdom this week and there were six times listed (7:15 AM, 9:15 AM, 11:15 AM, 3:10 AM, 4:15 AM, and 7:20 PM). Shuttle schedules are posted around two weeks at a time, so you should be able to see the ones for your April vacation in mid-March. (Please note that shuttle service times are always subject to change.) 

    If the shuttle times don't work with your plans, and you need to look into other transportation options, I've had good experiences using rideshare companies in Orlando such as Lyft and Uber. 

    I hope this helps with your plans and preparations for your upcoming trip! Please come back and visit us here at planDisney if you have more questions before you arrive.
