    I am visiting Disney World Jan 2020 and would like to have lunch in Disney Springs then head over to Hoop De Doo Review for the 8:30 show before going back to All Star Sports where we are staying. What is the best mode of travel?

    Hi Alicia!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Thank you for sending in such a good question.  If you are going straight from Disney's All-Star Sports Resort to Disney Springs, you can take a direct Disney Bus.  These will start running 45 minutes before opening time (which is typically 10.00am, but please check the opening times here).  If you are spending the early morning at any of the four theme parks, there is no bus service offered to Disney Springs until after 4.00pm, so you would have to take a bus to any Disney Resort hotel, then transfer to another bus for Disney Springs.  After you have enjoyed your lunch, and maybe a spot of shopping, take a bus from Disney Springs to Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort for your Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue.  I recommend you allow plenty of travelling time as you will need to check-in for this dinner reservation 30 minutes before the doors open at 8.30pm.   After the two-hour show I would recommend a taxi to take you back to your hotel.  You can stop by the Front Desk of Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and ask them to call you a cab, or you might like to consider using the Minnie Van Service - driven by friendly and knowledgeable Disney Cast Members they will take you back to your hotel in comfort and style.  You can place your booking for these by using the Lyft app on your smartphone, where the cost of using this service will also be displayed.  You can also book other Lyft vehicles by using the same app.

    If you were attending one of the earlier Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue shows, I would suggest taking a boat to Magic Kingdom Park, and then a bus from there back to your hotel.  Disney Transport typically runs for two hours after theme park closing.  Around the date of your visit in January, Magic Kingdom Park will be closing at 8.00pm (times subject to change - please check the calendar here for the exact closing times on the date of your visit), so by 10.30pm Disney transport will not be available for you on that day.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
