Bus from ak to mk

Is there a bus that will pick you up and take you to and from other parks? Will it be faster to drive?

1- Yes.

2- Not necessarily faster when MK is involved.

There is "direct" (some more "direct" some less) transportation between all the WDW theme parks.

Most routes are via Disney Buses.

Here are the "park-to-park" Disney Transportation direct connections:

>Note: The MK bus connections arrive and depart only at TTC.<

MK/TTC> Epcot = Monorail
MK/TTC> DHS = Bus
MK/TTC> AK= Bus

AK> DHS= Direct Bus
AK> Epcot= Direct Bus
AK> TTC/MK= Bus

DHS> TTC/MK= Bus
DHS> AK= Direct Bus
DHS> Epcot= Direct Bus (Epcot Front Gate) or Boat (Epcot Intl. Gateway)
......Boats ("Friendships") make 3 interim stops at the Epcot area resorts.)

Epcot > TTC/MK= Monorail
Epcot > AK= Direct Bus
Epcot> DHS= Direct Bus (Epcot Front Gate) or Boat (Epcot Intl. Gateway)
......Boats ("Friendships") make 3 interim stops at the Epcot area resorts.)

The buses have their destinations shown on them on illuminated signs.
The bus stops at the parks are also marked with signage.

As a rule-of-thumb, allow 40-60 minutes to get from the gates of one park to the gates of another park.

Someone is bound to come along and say that you can't take busses from one park to another, but Robo is correct.

You can.

The bus would likely be quicker from AK to MK. Make sure you can get a bus back to your car, though! AK closes early. And if you're leaving MK at closing time, just drive over there and drive out.

If I was going to MK from DAK or DHS, I'd get on the bus marked for the Contemporary Resort, then walk to MK from there.

If I was going from MK to DAK or DHS, I'd walk to the Contemporary Resort, then get on a bus marked for the the park (DAK or DHS) from there.

Thanks OP for asking this question.

What about going to MK from the resorts. If I take the bus from AKL to MK does it drop you off at TTC or does it go directly to the MK, this is our first time not staying at a MK resort and using the monorail.

1- The RESORTS (including AKL) have buses DIRECTLY to/from the MK front gates area.
(Shown in the center of my map above.)

No stop at TTC involved (unless you're staying at a Monorail Resort, of course.)
