    Thx for the game plan for our vacation. What is the best mode of transportation between parks? HS to MK? Epcot to AK? Taxi? I understand there is no shuttles b/w parks. What is your thoughts about AK in the pm (I hear the animals are often asleep then)

    Hi, Robyn!

    I hope the schedule we worked out for you is going to work with your plans!  There are so many options, but based on your 4 night vacation, I think that will work out well.

    There are buses between theme parks.  Depending on the park, there is also the option of walking, monorails, and even boats!  For the parks you want to hop between, you can simply take buses.  (The only time you cannot take a bus directly to a theme park is from Downtown Disney.)

    I think you will be fine going to Animal Kingdom in the afternoon.  The only attraction that you really worry about the animals sleeping is Kilimanjaro Safaris, and even if some are taking an afternoon siesta, you will still see some amazing animals roaming (and the lions are so cute when you see them sleeping up on the hill!)  My only hesitation with the afternoon is that Animal Kingdom does not stay open very late, so your time is limited.  For example, on November 7, Animal Kingdom closes at 6pm, where Epcot does not close until 9 pm.  I would suggest starting your day at AK, take a mid-day break, then have a nice evening in Epcot ending with Illuminations at 9pm. 

    Wow, your vacation is super soon - I hope you are getting the family all packed up!  Let me know if you have any last minute questions.  See You Real Soon!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
