Quickest way from MK to DS?

What is the quickest way to go from MK to DS, would it be monorail or bus?

Thanks!

Is DS, Disney's Hollywood Studios (DHS) or somewhere else?

If you're asking about DHS, then it's "faster" to take the bus. You can walk from MK over to the Contemporary and then catch a bus directly to DHS. Alternatively you can take the ferry (or monorail) from MK to the TTC, then catch a bus to DHS.

If you take the monorail you'll need to take the monorail (or ferry) from MK to TTC, then take the monorail from TTC to Epcot, then transfer to the bus from Epcot to DHS. There is no direct monorail from MK to DHS.

I have bad luck with buses from deluxe resorts. Your mileage may vary.

^ This is what I would do.

^ This would take forever.

But it's probably a route recommended by OLP

I would either head to the TTC and take the bus to DHS from there, or just walk over to the CR and take the DHS bus there. Or, you can take the boat over to the GF and take their DHS bus.

I just read somewhere that you can take a bus from park to park now. I can't remember were I saw it.

There has always been park to park transportation, but it leaves from the TTC for MK.
