Dear Monorails & Mickey Tales: Last time we went to Typhoon Lagoon, the bus to return to our resort was sooo confusing. What's the current process? This time we'll want to head to Magic Kingdom instead of our hotel. Thanks!
In the morning your steps might differ from what you'll do in the afternoon. For Typhoon Lagoon, take the morning bus to Disney Springs. Either the bus will drop you off at Typhoon Lagoon, or it won't and you'll have to transfer. For Blizzard Beach, the transfer point is Animal Kingdom instead of Disney Springs. Your resort might still have a direct bus, though, so make sure to read the signs at the bus stop. You can also check with the driver if your water park of choice is not on the bus's signage.
To return, it should be fairly clear where the buses are going. Again, some are direct and others not. There will also be a Disney Cast Member there to help if you have questions, and you can ask your driver for guidance.
