    How early does the first bus shuttle leave for the parks? Is it better to drive your yourself for an early fast pass+?

    Hello, Kaitlin!

    One of my favorite parts of any Walt Disney World Resort vacation is letting someone else worry about navigating the roads. The complimentary Walt Disney World Bus Service typically operates about 45 minutes before a theme park's opening until one hour after a theme park's closing. Since theme parks open and close at different times, I suggest checking with your Disney Resort hotel's front desk to find the exact times the buses will be running during your stay. 

    I hope this helps, Kaitlin. Please let us know if we can answer any other questions you may have as you continue to plan your magical visit!

    Happy Planning!
