    Me again:) We have ADR every morning 8 or 8:05 at a park EP, AK, MK, HS- for a character brkfst 6/15-6/18 should we drive to parks or take Disney transport, we're staying at CBR which is faster/easier? Also we're not "morning" people.

    Hello fellow Hoosier!!!!!  I understand completely about not being a morning person!  It takes all we can do to get the family up for an Extra Morning Hour at a theme park.  The last time we tried we got there five minutes before the normal opening!!!!

    The complementary Disney bus transportation will be up and running for the times you mentioned during your stay.  The approximate times to each park from the Caribbean Beach resort are as follows:
    EPCOT: 12 minutes
    Hollywood Studios: 12 minutes
    Magic Kingdom: 15 minutes
    Animal KIngdom: 23 minutes
    You would have to add wait time for all of the above....if you just miss one bus the next will come 15-20 minutes later.

    It's a toss-up decision but our family always takes the bus to the Magic Kingdom no matter what so we don't have to deal wtih the monorail and ferry from the parking lot, and always drive to the Animal Kingdom park since the bus area is a hike from the entrance anyway.  For EPCOT and Hollywood Studios, for us it would be a flip of a coin.

    Just remember when taking Disney bus transportation or driving, be sure and give yourselves plenty of time to not only get to the park but also to get to the restaurant where your reservation is for.  Lines around the entrances get heavy early on and although you can enter with a dining reservation you still have to maneuver around the masses.
