Can you get to DTD from the parks or vice versa?

Wondering how to get there if we aren't at the hotel...

There aren't direct buses between DTD and the parks. Too many people were trying to park for free at DTD and ride the buses to the theme parks.

You can use hotels nearby the parks as transfer points. From Epcot to DTD (or vice versa), use the Beach Club. Walk to the Contemporary from the MK to catch a bus to DTD. Use Boardwalk if you are at HS. Use AKL at the AK. This is the only route where you have to ride a bus to make the transfer. BC, BW, and CR are all within walking distance of the parks I listed.

Thanks!

Last time we went to DTD right from our hotel and back and I didn't pay attention if you could get to the parks from there. Makes sense so people don't abuse the disney transportation.

Saratoga Springs is also walking distance from DTD. Can take a bus from the parks to SS and then walk over.

But you need to know how to get to DTD from SSR. The path is dark and not really indicated very well except on the maps they give to the guests who stay there. Why not just get a bus from the nearest hotel and go directly to DTD? Or take you own vehicle or go back to your hotel and go from there? It's rather frustrating to stay at SSR and not being able to get a seat on the bus because of all the people going to DTD via SSR.

All I can think of is a pole dancer
Is there a pill for this condition or do I just keep up the cycle of going to Disney

if you are at Ticket Center you can walk to Polynesian bus stop.

We stayed At SSR this past month and the path is not marked that well but it was fairly easy to navigate - walk to the water and follow the path to the East. OR from SSR take the boat to DTD
