    We are going to Disney at the end of October (For our Son's 7th Birthday), staying at the Caribean Beach Resort. What is the travel like to all the parks (transit time, wait time, etc)?

    Hi Jeannine,

    I think your family will really enjoy Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort.  I stayed there for part of my honeymoon.  It is a charming tropical retreat for all ages!

    Disney provides complimentary bus transportation from your resort to all the Disney theme parks, water parks, and Downtown Disney.  Epcot, Downtown Disney, and Disney's Hollywood Studios are very close by; it will only take 10-15 minutes to reach them by bus.  The Magic Kingdom and Disney's Animal Kingdom will take 20-25 minutes by bus. 

    Typically you will wait for a bus to your destination for less than twenty minutes.  More buses run at the beginning and end of the day as more guests are moving about the property at that time.  I have rarely waited for more than 30 minutes for a Disney bus to arrive.

    Have an amazing trip in October and please wish your son a very happy birthday from the Moms Panel when the big day arrives!
