Fastest way to mk from Movies?

Is it faster to drive to MK from All StarMovies or is it faster to take the bus?

I'll say bus since it goes straight there and no need for monorail or boat.

Bus. It'll drop you off right at MK.

If you drive, you have to park at TTC. Then, either a long walk (especially if it's later in the day) or tram ride to the monorail or the boat. Then, the monorail or the boat.

HOWEVER, both the monorail and boat rides are a great way to arrive at the MK, especially for the first time. Personally, I prefer the boat.

It's almost as if MK was designed for a boat arrival.

well few things to think about definitely faster by bus as others have stated BUT if staying until park closing depending on amount of people exiting buses can take longer so many variables agree too that taking the car & then ferry with the castle coming into view is more magical

Always bus when you're going to MK, regardless of where you're staying (unless you're at a monorail resort).

We always drive to the parks except for MK. After driving a few times we found it to be a pain because of the parking, tram, monorail, etc.

If you leave when everyone else leaves, it can make the bus inconvenient. But I'd suggest hanging back a bit and let the big droves of people get out. Or leave before the crowds do!
