    How early do the buses run from Disney Springs to Magic Kingdom or Hollywood Studios?

    Welcome to planDisney, Sara!

    Thanks for stopping by with your question. 

    If you're wanting to maximize your Disney day, you'll want to arrive at the theme park nice and early. If you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel (or at one of the other select hotels), you'll be able to take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry. This perk gives you a 30-minute head start and allows you to ride one or two major attractions before the regular opening time. It's one of the many reasons I always try to stay on property.

    Sara, Disney buses officially start operating 45 minutes before the regular park opening. However, I would personally turn up at the bus stop an hour before you plan on arriving at the theme park. I should mention that bus transportation does not operate from Disney Springs to Magic Kingdom Park, Disney's Hollywood Studios, or any theme park. You'll need to take the bus from your Disney Resorts Collection hotel. If you are driving, you'll need to park at the theme park parking area. Parking is free for Guests staying at a Disney Resort. If you're not staying on property, parking is an additional fee.

    I hope that's clarifying, Sara. Have a great, big, beautiful tomorrow.
