Just so I'm clear... bus from Epcot to TTC is quicker than monorail from Epcot to TTC?

Thanks for the help!

There generally is no bus from Epcot to TTC unless the monorail is out of service.

Sorry if this has already been covered but here it goes.

I need the best way to get from OKW to BC for Cape May Cafe (7:45pm ADR) and would I take the same way back? Also from OKW to the Boardwalk for Flying Fish (8:10pm ADR) and again, same way back? I'd also like to hang around BW for a little while so factor that into your plans. I'm not entirely sure I'll have to go from OKW to BW, I'm using that day as a hopper day so I'm not sure where I'll be, but I know if I'm at the parks I can just hop a bus there. I'll be going in January if that makes any difference (as far as parkhours and how late the buses run)

OKW to BC
Certainly the fastest and easiest way to get there would be to take a taxi. Just call Bell Services and they will have one at your building when your ready to go, and will have you at BC in no more than 10 minutes, at a cost of approx $10 plus tip.
By Disney transportation, probably get the first bus to DHS, (I believe they begin running around 6:30 am for ADRs) and then either walk (approx 25 minutes) or take the boat if they are running that early, to the YC/BC and walk to the BC from the boat dock (approx 25 minutes depending on how long you have to wait for a boat). Total time approx 60 minutes.

Keep in mind that it will still be dark and could be chilly that time of the morning.

To get back to OKW, just do the reverse. Or you could walk thru Epcot and take a bus back to OKW from there, but it will require a park admission.

OKW to BW
Getting to the BW from OKW is basically the same as above, from MK or AK just hop a bus to the BW as you said, from Epcot or DHS walk or boat.
Getting back to OKW from the BW at that time (Epcot and DHS might be closed by then, check the park hours for that specific day) if parks are closed, will probably require taking the bus to DTD and then transferring to an OKW bus. Figure at least an hour.
Or there's always the taxi, the valet desk at BW will get you one in a minute or two.

Here is a link to a map which should help you visualize getting to and from DHS to BC or BW.

Thank you, both of those were night time ADRs just a btw, so I'm not worried about the morning. This boat you speak of, I honestly don't recall ever seeing it! Although the past 2 times I was there I was also busy trying to keep track of a lot of different things. I don't need to go INTO HS for this boat right?

Sorry about that I thought the Cape May ADR was for the AM, dyslexia I guess.

No you do not have to enter DHS to get to the boat dock, it is located on the opposite side of the lake from the bus drop off, you can see it from the area in front of the entrance.

If there is a boat already at the dock when you get to the entrance area there is a change you might not make it there before the boat leaves, if it does you are probably better off walking because another one won't be along for 15-20 minutes. If it's just arriving you're golden.

Check with the front desk for what time the last bus to DHS is if the park closes early. (DHS closes many nights in Jan at 7:00 pm) I would think if you're on your way by 6 you shouldn't have a problem.

If you can't catch the last bus, there is always the taxi.

Do buses from the parks go to TTC or just to the resorts?

Buses run to the TTC from both DHS and AK. The Epcot monorail goes to the TTC and the ferry and monorail from MK go to the TTC.

Sweet! I needed to know if I could get from AK to Ohana dinner, and I can.

Thanks.

You can also just take the bus to the Polynesian from AK.

Gosh, most days I'm really not that stupid. Seriously, I really now can't believe that I even posted that question and it didn't occur to me to take the Poly bus. I think the proper word for my post would be "DUH".

Poly to POP

Another question that may have already been answered but didn't find it when I searched the thread -- we have a late ADR at Ohana and want to know how to get back to POP. MK closes at 8pm and we may not be done dinner in time to get a bus to POP from there. Is my only option a taxi?

If there's another park open, you can transfer there, but it would probably take at least an hour. If no other parks are open, you can transfer at DTD, but that would probably take at least 90 minutes.

I would take a taxi.
