    When do the buses leave for magic kingdom

    Hi Victoria!

    One of the most amazing things about staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel is the complimentary transportation to and from the theme parks!  The most common type of transportation is the Walt Disney World Bus Service.  Buses to any of the theme parks run approximately every 20 minutes and typically begin running 45 minutes before the park opens.  Buses from the resorts to the parks run until around one hour before park closing.  Buses returning to the resorts from the parks run until about two hours after the park closes.  

    Depending on where you are staying, you may also have other transportation options that will take you to Magic Kingdom Park.  These other options include Walt Disney World Water Transportation and the Walt Disney World Monorail System.  

    Remember, theme park hours can vary daily, so make sure to check the hours that the park will be open before you begin making plans.  My favorite way to do this is by using the My Disney Experience mobile app, but you can also ask a Cast Member!  

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
