    One day we will be going to MGM first thing in the morning and then eat lunch at the Sci Fi Drive In. Afterwards, we will probably "hop" on over to Epcot. How do you suggest we park hop to Epcot? Boat,bus,or rental car.

    Hi Tracy - Your two choices really come down to boat or rental car.   If you goal is to travel just between these two parks, Disney bus transportation would not be the most effective way.

    Since you may have access to a car, I am personally preferential to driving between parks.  If you stay at a Disney resort and choose to drive, parking is complimentary.   Between the time spent traveling on Disney transportation to Hollywood Studios (previously MGM), the boat to Epcot, and return bus to your resort, you may find it quicker to drive.   This, however, assumes you are comfortable with getting around Disney yourself.   Its not that difficult, but some folks simply choose to let Disney take them around.  If that is your case, the boat ride is your best bet and is quite pleasant.   As the captain will announce, it takes 25 minutes to travel between Hollywood Studios and Epcot and will leave you outside the Epcot entrance located within the World Showcase.    Hope this helps!
