    When there is an early morning magic hour for a specific park, when do the buses leave the Disney resorts? For example, if an early morning starts at 8am, and the park opens regularly at 9am, when do the buses leave Art of Animation resort?

    Hi, Jackie!

    Thanks so much for visiting with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Disney's complimentary transportation begins operating an hour before the theme parks open. Since Extra Magic Hours begins at 8am, then the buses, boats, and Monorail will begin taking guests to the theme park at 7am. Sometimes, they will even begin a little before 7am. 

    I would suggest to be at the bus stop at Disney's Art of Animation Resort anytime between 7:00am-7:15am. This will give you enough time to travel to the theme park and be prepared to enter through the gates right when it opens, rope drop. Remember that you will have to go through security first, which sometimes has a line.

    Enjoy your time at your resort, as well as, Disney's Art of Animation! 

    Stop by and visit with us again if you have more questions.
