    There are no more direct busses, your best bet is either to head to Pop Century or get off at the Polynesian Resort and walk to transportation centre.

    Re: Bus Transportation

    The only one that I know of that this situation works for is Animal Kingdom...there is a bus that goes directly from Animal Kingdom to Hollywood Studios. Unless something has changed, there are no other direct routes such as that. Thus, I have to agree with the previous post...except you can also take a bus to the Caribbean Beach, or either Port Orleans resort and take a bus from there.

    Re: Bus Transportation

    There are no direct buses between DTD and the other parks - otherwise everyone would park at DTD for free. All buses at DTD terminate at a resort.

    There are "direct" buses between all 4 major parks, except MK-Epcot (which has the monorail). However the inter-park buses for MK terminate at the TTC, NOT at the park where the resort buses do.

    So, there are buses between:

    AK-DHS
    AK-Epcot
    AK-TTC (MK)
    DHS-Epcot
    DHS-TTC (MK)

    Although there is no direct bus as such I would get the bus to either the Swan, Dolphin, Boardwalk or Yacht & Beach Club resorts (whichever comes first) and then Epcot International gateway is only a short walk away, so only 1 bus ride needed

    It really depends on what park you're at and where you want to go....but often it's best to take a bus from a park to any resort...usually the closest, then take a bus from there to the other park.

    This is exactly what I would do too!

    Take the bus from Downtown Disney to the Beach Club or Boardwalk resort. Both resorts are right next to Epcot and a short walk to the Epcot entrance at the International Gateway.
