    If busses start 45 minutes before parks open, is it not possible for guests staying at all star sports resort to make it on time for early entry? Google maps indicates 45-50 minutes from the resort to each of the 4 theme parks.

    Welcome back to planDisney, Manki! Thanks for bringing your great question our way.

    Oh boy! I'm thrilled to hear that you have a vacation planned in January and I can't think of a better place to kick off a new year than at The Most Magical Place on Earth. It sounds like you're getting all of your Donald Ducks in a row before you arrive, including preparing for transportation to the parks so you can fully enjoy and experience Early Theme Park Entry! Manki, I'd love to help.

    Bus transportation at Walt Disney World Resort begins 45 minutes prior to park opening. The good news is that this includes Early Theme Park Entry! For example, if the park you're visiting typically opens at 8:00 AM and Early Theme Park Entry is at 7:30 AM, the buses should begin running at around 6:45 AM. Personally, I like to be at the bus stop a full hour before Early Theme Park Entry so I can be ready and in line for that first bus of the day! 

    Before you arrive, I'd recommend taking a little time to download and explore the My Disney Experience app. This app will help you to fully experience Walt Disney World Resort, making sure you don't miss a minute of the magic! While in the parks, you'll be able to check wait times for attractions, view park maps, access virtual queues, and even mobile order food (my favorite!). It's almost like holding your very own magic wand in your hand!

    I hope I was able to point you in the right direction today, Manki! Please visit us again with any other questions you may have. After all, you've got a friend in me!
