    I was wondering if the buses run between parks or do we have to go back to our resort each time we would like to go to a different park?

    Hi Tammy,

    The buses don't run directly from park to park.  However, you won't necessarily have to go back to your resort each time you want to park hop.  When you are leaving a park, you'll want to travel to the nearest resort to the park you are trying to get to, or travel to the Transportation & Ticket Center and switch buses there.  Hopefully that makes sense.  If not, here are some examples:

    To get from:

    • Animal Kingdom to Magic Kingdom - Take a bus to the Transportation & Ticket Center then take either the boat or monorail to the park.
    • Magic Kingdom to Epcot - Take monorail to Transportation & Ticket Center then transfer to the Epcot monorail.
    • Hollywood Studios to Epcot - Take boat launch directly to the park.

    If you go to, there is a tool called Transportation Wiz.  You plug in where you're traveling from and where you want to go, and it will give you transportation options with approximate travel times.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
