    Coming to WDW Nov 8-14. Can't wait! Have dining res @ H&V @8:30 am & Crystal Palace @ 8:25 am. Staying @CBR, not driving. How much time should we allow to get to each of these? Arrive 20 min early? etc. Thanks so much, love the Moms Panel!

    Hi Mary!  The actual bus times from the Caribbean Beach resort to the parks is fairly short....12 minutes to Hollywood Studios and 15 minutes to the Magic Kingdom.  The busses will drop you off near the entrance to the parks but you will still need to figure in a 5-10 minute walk to the restaurants.  If you are unlucky like me then you will also have to add the wait times for the bus since the one you want will most likely be pulling away when you get to the bus stop.  Buses run every 15-20 minutes to each park.

    When you figure all the wait times and actual transportation times I would suggest you give yourself an hour to get to each park for your dining reservation.  The parks should not be particularly crowded at this time so that should be sufficient.  During more crowded times I suggest even more time.  If you leave at 7:30am you should be in great shape!
