    How early should we leave our resort if we are taking the disney busline to make our dinner reservations?


    That is a tough question to give you an answer to, as it depends on where you are starting from, and to where you are going. A good ballpark plan is to assume these times;

    • Time waiting at resort for your bus: 20 minutes
    • Bus time from a resort to a park: 30 minutes
    • Time from bus into a park and restaurant: 10 minutes
    Since you should arrive 15 minutes before your reservation time, you should assume that you need to get started at least an hour before your dining time, maybe more.

    Again, these could be high estimates, depending on where you are going, and what resort is your starting point. If you would like more specific recommendations, send me another question with that information by going to my bio page.

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
