Good ? Randall, I just tried to find out the answer and once again a mixed bag of info

Some of the info I found said there are no park to park busses

some said you can get a bus from HS to AK with a quick stop in-between at Blizzard Beach

Also found one that said recently they started running busses direct to parks, while others say you have to go to Tickets & Transportation

I need to look into it further, since the research so far is so stretched
out

In August I was on the HS - AK run, I remember stopping at Blizzard Beach

So I hope the right answer is that they are running park to park, I'd really love to save some time on park hopping, otherwise I'll be back to the drawing board trying to skim some time somewhere

I got to get me one of those Monorails, Looks cool Randall

I did see a rumor that I hope is true, The Beauty & The Beast Castle may be ready for the end of June This would be the Be Our Guest dinner

If this is true, I'll be there in August Out of where we are going to eat I'd drop House Of Blues to go there

Yeah I keep getting told that there are park to park buses but I have never seen a stop at any of the parks. I'll see if I can get some concrete info on this!

On another note....I'm super disappointed in the "big" Disney Parks announcement.....it's a get an extra day promo but only for a 2 week period which of course ends the day before I arrive in March...

It's ok, looks like this promo wouldn't save me more money than what I'm doing now anyway!

Ok....so since I never really needed to take a bus between parks, I never bothered looking at the transportation forum, but here's what I found on this thread http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2573200

I'll start with this one.....(thanks MagicBus)

Bus & Monorail Park to Park Transportation

From MK to:
AK, bus from TTC
DHS, bus from TTC
Epcot, Monorail from TTC

From Epcot to:
AK, bus stop #5
DHS, bus stop #9
TTC/MK, Monorail

From DHS to:
AK, bus stop #7
Epcot, bus stop #7 in the Charter lot
TTC/MK, bus stop #11

From AK to:
DHS, bus stop #15
Epcot bus stop #13
TTC/MK, bus stop #14

There is also boat transportation between DHS & Epcot.

Based on this info park to park for Epcot, HS & AK are all direct and would bring you to the gate

Anything that has to do with MK is all based out off TTC

This has foiled my idea somewhat, since you are not going to make any time at TTC, so as a backup plan I might make some time if I took the bus to the Comtemp and just walk to MK

Back to the topic here though - yes, I think your tastes were very similar, so if you like it, I'm sure he would too.

Congratulations Hope everyone is doing well:good vibes, The 1st time we took Hunter to WDW he was 18m, everyone said we were crazy, but on the trip after that he did remember things when we were walking around, so at 18m they do remember some things that they liked or didn't like

I'll be sure to keep you informed about Schula's

Congrats!! I say don't wait! My first son was 5 months old the first time I took him. Even though he doesn't remember anything of that trip, we have so many wonderful memories of that trip! He was so excited to see all of the colors in the surroundings of the parks (we went the week of Halloween that year) and he would laugh and get excited when we saw characters and parades! It was well worth it to me even though we drove from TX that trip and he got cranky being in the car all of that time.

jmm476, first off congrats on your new addition to the family. I can't see why you have to wait to take her. Between 14 and 18 months is a perfect time, as they are just getting independent with walking, and is a perfect time to expose her to all the magic that Disney in general has to offer. While she'll be too small for rides, it will make exploring the parks more fun before the kids get older, and are more interested in the rides than watching a parade, or other entertainment that the older kids are not interested in.
