    We are coming to Disney on June 13th. We want to visit MK and Hollywood (Star Wars). We will have a fast pass and park hopper. Will it be possible to go back and forth easily between the two? How long does it take to get from one to the other?

    Hi, Anne!

    Getting around to the different parks can take some time, especially if the crowds are heavy. 

    Magic Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios are about a 10-15 minute care ride, depending on the traffic. If you plan to use Disney's complimentary transportation, there is not a bus that can take you between each park. 
    When leaving Magic Kingdom to head over to Disney's Hollywood Studios, you would need to get to the nearest Resort. You can walk to Disney's Contemporary Resort and take a bus to Hollywood Studios, or you can take the Monorail if the line is not too long. Another option is to take a boat to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa Resort or to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. From any of those resort locations, you can find a bus stop. 
    When traveling from Disney's Hollywood Studios to the Magic Kingdom, you can take a bus to the nearest Resort, which is any resort near Disney's Boardwalk. From there, a bus can transport you to Magic Kingdom. Also from Disney's Hollywood Studios, there is a ferryboat that can float you over to Disney's Boardwalk with those same Resorts. 
    Since you have a park hopper, you could also take the ferry from Disney's Hollywood Studios to Epcot, walk through Epcot to the Monorail Then take the Epcot Monorail to the Transportation and Ticket Center. Hop on the Express Monorail to the Magic Kingdom and then do the opposite to get back to Disney's Hollywood Studios. Any of these options will take at least 45 minutes.
    So however you decide to plan your park hopper days, just be sure to plan plenty of travel time! Enjoy your magical time at Walt Disney World Resort! 

    Tip: Be sure to see the March of the First Order everyday starting at 10am from Star Wars: Launch Bay.
    Happy planning! Visit with us again soon!
