    We will be staying off site with our car, and want Express Transportation ticket option. We will be going to HS to view Fantasmic! and Star Wars fireworks! Need to know how we will get back to our car afterwards, since the parks will be closed. Thank you!

    Hi Sharon!

    Your concern has come up before when talking about the new Disney Express Transportation Option. On my last visit to Walt Disney World I purposely dragged my husband along so we could experience this new service. 

    You can purchase your pass or ticket for the day of park hopping at your resort before you come to the parks or you can do it at the check-in podium in the parks. The Hollywood Studios location is back by the Rock n Roller Coaster attraction.

    Make sure you have plenty of time to get to your next park especially if you are trying to make a FastPass or show. The buses run on a schedule of about every 30 minutes and each bus has their own park that they go back and forth from. In other words you don't share a bus with others who aren't going to the same destination which is nice.

    I did ask what happens when you drive to a park and then hop to another only to find out the park where your car is has closed for the day. The cast members assured me that Disney would not leave guests stranded and the buses would make sure all guests got back to their automobiles. Instead of dropping you off backstage of the park they would instead drop you off at the parking lots. My suggestion is to discuss where you will need to be after both Fantasmic! and the fireworks that evening. They will either direct you to return to the Express Transportation podium in Hollywood Studios or to the front of the park where other buses will be running.

    This new service has won me over. I will definitely use it again and likely purchase the week pass. It saves so much time to avoid the waiting for transportation to a park and then go through the security lines over and over again. It allows you to add another attraction or two to your plans. Just make sure you have a Park Hopper ticket as that is the only way you can use the service. Enjoy!
