    Disney Buses question

    When my sister and I go down to WDW we are staying at All-Star Movies. We're getting an ADR for Boma the night we get there and we're not sure about the buses over to AKL and Boma. I know they don't do resort to resort, so I'm curious what would be our quickest route? I was thinking a bus to DTD and then hit the bus to AKL, but I'm not totally sure. Advice please?

    I don't know, exactly, the best route, but if you look at a map of the entire property, DTD is completely on the other side. The All Star's are right next door to DAK, relatively speaking.
    Someone else here should be able to fix you up!
    Or, call Disney.

    Re: Disney Buses question

    I'm wondering if we could catch a bus to DAK and catch the AKL bus from there? From AKL that night we're going to play Fantasia Gardens, so we'll catch a bus from AKL to DHS and go to Fantasia Gardens. Then it's a bus ride back to Movies from there, i think. I just hope the don't stop bus service really early or something that night.

    I would most likely take the AK bus from your resort and then over to AKL since they are right near each other

    I would take either the bus to AK or Blizzard Beach. Whichever shows up first.

    Is Blizzard Beach open that time of year? My biggest worry is the trip back from Fantasia Gardens.

    To get from Fantasia Gardens back to your resort, it looks like you are going to want to catch a bus to DTD.

    Re: Disney Buses question

    When you check in I'd ask at the desk for the park schedules & hours that evening. I seem to remember that busses to/from the parks would run for 1 1/2 to 2 hours after closing.

    Depending on when AK closes & what time your ADR is you may not be able to do the bus to AK then to AKL. Which puts you back to the DTD bus then to AKL.

    Same thing w/the Fantasia trip. I see you plan to go to DHS then walk over. Depending on when DHS closes & how long you are at the mini-golf, you may need to grab a bus from one of the Epcot hotels back to DTD then to your resort.

    I'm not sure what your budget is, but you may want to consider splurging for a cab for some/all of the trips. At a minimum you may want to stick an extra $20 in your pocket just in case you do end up having to call a cab. Bell services at any hotel can get you one. And at the parks they are usually around the entrance/parking lot at the end of the night.

    After dinner take a cab back to your resort. There will be cabs waiting outside AKL. The concierge can get you one if there is not. 15-20 bucks for the ride home. It's worth it. It's a short ride. You will be tired the first night and your belly will be full. Trust me... get the cab.
