    Does "Complimentary Disney Resorts Collection transportation begins 45 minutes prior to Walt Disney World Resort theme park opening" mean 45 minutes before Early Morning Hours begin? or 45 minutes before the park opens for everyone?

    Heigh-Ho Cathy,

    Beginning your magical adventure, at any of the four Walt Disney World Theme Parks, can begin at any time, during operating hours, as long as you have a Disney Park Park Pass reservation. Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel or Participating Hotel have some extra special pixie dust sprinkled their way with Early Theme Park Entry hours. This extra-special perk allows Guests to begin their day 30-minutes prior to the standard operating park hours. Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel and using the complimentary bus transportation will be able to board 45-minutes prior to the Early Theme Park opening time. I suggest being at your bus depot an hour before though because sometimes buses will begin running a little bit earlier. 

    I hope I have helped with your curiouser and curiouser inquiry and check out our Instagram (@planDisneypanel) and Panel Extras for more Vacation Planning Tips. We look forward to Welcoming You Home and may your visit be filled with many Magical and Memorable Moments. 

    Have a Practically Perfect Day,

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
