[QUOTE=MerlinMatt;1001349]Are you sure about that? That’s not my experience.
I’m pretty sure there’s a bus that goes directly to the MK gate from AK.[/QUOTE]
Picking this up a little late, but no, all buses from other parks go to TTC, not directly to MK.
AK buses go directly to Epcot or DHS.
Epcot buses go directly to AK or DHS
DHS buses go directly to AK or Epcot.
You can take the slow boat to China (Friendships between DHS and Epcot)
If you want to go to or from MK to any of the other parks, you’re going to be quicker taking a bus to the Contemporary and walking or possibly to GF and transferring to the monorail.
Another thing, there is no service from the parks to DTD, so from MK, take the DTD bus from the Contemporary. From Epcot, walk out to either Boardwalk or Beach and take the bus from there.
Finally, unless they are part of the route your bus is on, there is no service directly from one resort to the other.
As for car vs Disney Transport, you’ll usually be quicker on the bus (sometimes excepting AK) because you will almost always be directed to parking that is a hike, so you’ll wind up riding the trams to the gates.
In MK, you park in TTC lots, tram to the TTC which is across the street from lots, and then take monorail or ferry to main gate. This will eat up a lot of extra time versus busing to the Contemporary and walking to the gate.
