    Taxi ?

    Okay . . . pardon my wordiness!!

    If I leave Pop Century and head to Downtown Disney via bus . . .

    Then head to AKL for dinner via bus . . .

    Should I get a taxi back to Pop or travel by bus back to a park and then Pop?
    How much would a taxi cost from AKL to Pop? Will it seat 5?

    Or should we just drive to each destination and forget it?

    I will have just run the Race for the Taste and want to take the path of least resistance!!

    If time is not an issue, take the bus to DS, or EPCOT and then the bus back to Pop. A taxi is going to cost you at least $15, if not more.

    i agree I wouldn't take the taxi. I would say that it would be about $15 or so. Plus depends on what taxis are around, they might not seat 5.

    Then bus it is!! I want to blow my $15 on other "needs"! One more quick question: I know they will send packages back to the resort from the parks. Will they also send them from Downtown Disney?? Thanks for your help!

    It also depends on what time it is when you have dinner ressies. We have taken taxi's when it gets late. Word of warning, use Disney sanctioned taxi's. The bell hop at the main entrance will call one forward for you, worth the couple dollars. They generally stage taxi's off in the parking lots out of sight, the Disney way. They can call forward a cab/car or cab/minivan! We used a minivan to move my son into the college program from POFQ to the campus housing (near DTD) $13.00 + tip, & $3 to bell hop.
