Transport from Epcot to MGM

We will be staying at Shades of Green and want to do a split day starting at Epcot and going to MGM later in the day. Do we have to wait for a Shades of Green bus to take us to MGM or can we take any bus? Not sure how this works . Thanks.

When you exit Epcot at the main gate go left to the bus stops. There will be one for MGM that will take you directly to the park.

The other option Ms Dragon is referring to is, You can exit Epcot between France and United Kingdom. This exit leads to Boardwalk, Yacht Club, Beach Club etc... Anyway you can catch a boat just outside the exit that will take you to the resorts, I think you need to switch boats but there is one that also goes to MGM. Its a nice ride , I think it would be a nice break.

I don't think there is a direct bus which goes from Epcot to MGM, as Disney busses only go from theme park to resorts, not from theme park to other theme park.

The boat transport outside the International Gateway in World Showcase is your best bet from getting back and forth from Epcot and MGM.

All my experiences, and everything I've read in recent years states that there is no direct "theme park to theme park" bus service at Disney.

I've even asked cast members in the past about it, and they said the same thing. Now, granted, this was in the "off season" as I've never been during the peak crowd times.

Have you done this during heavy crowd seasons?

Let me clarify something.

You can catch a bus at the Transportation and Ticket Center going nearly anywhere on the Disney campus, so I guess, technically, if you want to count the TTC as part of Magic Kingdom, you can catch a bus from there to another theme park.

We've taken buses from park to park without stopping at the T&TC or a resort.

I´m always there in June/July for 4 weeks and in Dezember for 3 weeks...

Maybe they do it in these periods??

yes, now that I´m thinkin´about it twice I can remember that I took a Bus from MGM to Animal for sure (I know because we waited 35 Min in 88 Deg. ) At 9:30 AM!!!
