    Is there a map or site somewhere that shows how you get from park to park? For example, Get on bus A, go to B, get on monorail, etc. I'm hoping that will help give me an idea of the time I should allow each morning if we want to make rope-drops.

    We are staying at AoA, and I know they have their own bus. Going 2/3-2/9, so I'm hoping crowds will be low. We're also taking out 4 1/2 year old for his first trip...any other advice is much appreciated!

    You will take a dedicated bus from AoA to each park or other location that is served by resort buses.
    (Example: If you're headed to Magic Kingdom, wait for the bus marked "Magic Kingdom.")

    Figure that you should be at your resort bus top by 45-60 min. before you intend to be a each park in the morning.

    In the case of park-hopping:

    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.

    You don't need a map. If you're going from your resort to a park, you just go to the bus stop and wait for the bus that's going to the park you want to go to. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy. Allowing an hour will get you there in plenty of time for rope drop.

    For park to park transportation, see above.
