How to Get From Magic Kingdom to Hollywood Studios
The fastest way to get from Magic Kingdom to Hollywood Studios is by taking a Disney Bus. Disney buses allow visitors to travel in comfort (and air conditioning) as they transition from one park to the other. Disney buses are free for all guests, so you don't need to be staying at a Disney resort to use them.
How Often Do the Buses Come Around?
Something to be aware of is Disney buses come around every 20 minutes, so if the bus is not there when you get there, chances are that you'll have to wait a few minutes until the next one shows up.
Many guests forget to factor this into their itinerary for the day.
Where Are the Buses?
When you're leaving the park through the main gates, the Disney bus stops can be found on your left hand side.
After you board the bus, the buses will drop you off right next to the Hollywood Studios main entrance.
Minnie Van Service
At an additional cost, visitors can take the Minnie Van Service where the drivers are actually Disney Cast Members.
The Minnie Van Service is a Disney-themed car that can take guests to a Disney park in style (and comfort).
Why Do Guests Use This?
The main reason why guests use this service, is due to knowing that their Lyft driver will be a cast member, as well as being able to experience what the polka dot-filled car is really like.
About the Vehicle and How to Book
Each vehicle accommodates up to 6 Guests.
Guests will simply use the Lyft app to schedule their ride as they normally would.
However, they will select 'Minnie Van Service' over the other options (Lyft, Lyft XL, etc).
How it Works:
- Open the Lyft App - Set your pick-up location as Magic Kingdom, and select Minnie Van Service
2. Set your drop-off location as Hollywood Studios
3. Observe the Minnie Van Service vehicles around the area, and select it
Hours of Operation
Minnie Van service operates from 6:30 AM to 12:30 AM daily. Hours of operation are subject to change.
Ride Sharing Services
If you are traveling with a smaller number of people, or you don't want to deal with waiting for buses, ride sharing services may be a great fit.
At an additional cost, you can request a ride sharing service to pick you and your party up and transport you over to the next park.
Some visitors would rather do this, instead of having to deal with some of the stops that buses will have.
