    Hi. We are coming to WDW for the first time in July, staying at Caribbean Beach resort. We were wondering what times the transport stops at night? We are looking at all the evening fireworks & wants to check we can still get back to the resort


    Thanks for your question!

    As you may have already learned, Walt Disney World has a variety of transportation options for you to use, making it as fun to get to the parks as it is to play in the parks! As a rule, you will find that whatever is the standard means of transportation between a resort and a park, that system will run long enough after the park closing for you to get home. In the case of Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort those main options would be;
    But here is a brief review of the operation hours for the four major forms of transportation;

    The Walt Disney World Bus Service between the Disney Resorts and a given park run from 45 minutes before a park opens in the morning to 2 hours after the park closes in the evening.

    The Walt Disney World Monorail System runs from 30 minutes before park opening until 1 hour after park closing. 

    Operation times for the Walt Disney World Water Transportation can vary more, due to weather, but you will find that typically they run comparably to these other systems. 

    Finally, the Disney Skyliner system does not yet post official transportation hours, but again (like with the boats) while they are somewhat reliant on the weather, they operate on comparable schedules of at least 1 hour after park closing. That should serve you well in getting home after an evening of fireworks and fun!

    I hope that this helps? Write us back if you have more questions!

    Have a Magical Vacation!
