    How can we determine how long it will take to travel to each park from our resort and what transfers we may need? We are staying at Caribbean and going at all four parks, one each day.

    Hi, Gary!  To be safe, I always say you should allow at least an hour to go from your resort to the theme parks.  If you have a dining reservation, you may want to leave an extra fifteen minutes early, just so you make sure you're on time.

    As far as transfers, you really need nothing once you're at Walt Disney World.  You'll get a map of your resort, which directs you to the buses that will be marked with the theme parks they are going to.  If you want to go to the Magic Kingdom, you hop on the Magic Kingdom bus, and likewise for the other theme parks.

    If you want to go to another resort, you take your resort bus to a theme park or the Downtown Disney Marketplace, then you can climb aboard another bus that will take you to the resort you need to get to.  There is nothing necessary to board any of the buses.  Just show up and sit down!

    Have a great vacation!
