    Hello, I will be celebrating my 51st BD & beating breast cancer at WDW 11/28-12/4. On my actual BD 11/30 I have dinner reservations at the Rose&Crown at 4:55 and La Neuba at 9:00, What is the best way to get EP - DTD and how early should I arrive

    Hi Erin!

    Congratulations on that triumph! That is quite a triumph to celebrate! AND Happy Birthday too! (Maybe I'll be the first one to wish you that this year!!!)

    First, lets tackle the "How to get there" part of your question: Bus transportation does not run directly between theme parks and Downtown Disney. Due to this, you'll need to head to a resort and then use bus transportation to Downtown Disney.

    The best way to get from Epcot to Downtown Disney will be to exit the park via the International Gateway, which is located between the France and United Kingdom pavilions. From this exit the Boardwalk Resort and the Yacht & Beach Club resorts are just a short walk. At any of these resorts, you can use the bus transportation to Downtown Disney.

    Now, as to the timing question, I always give myself at least an hour to travel between locations. Many times travel is quicker than this, but I hate to be late! Also, if you need to pick up your tickets at the Will Call window, i might add in just a little more time!

    Hope you have a great birthday and lots of fun at Walt Disney World! Be sure to let us Moms know if we can help you with any more tips!
