    With early park entry for resort guests does transportation start running based on the early entry or do they still run based on normal park time?

    Hi Ryan,

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your question about Early Theme Park Entry for Disney Resort Hotel Guests.  I am happy to answer your question today!

    Ryan, I like how you are planning on being one of the first Guests into the theme parks by taking advantage of early theme park entry for Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel.  As you may know, Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel are able to enter the theme parks 30 minutes before all other Guests.  You will be surprised at how much you can accomplish in the first hour if you are one of the first Guests into the theme parks.  Personally, I like to head straight for the most popular attractions and experience those at the start of my day and then save the sight-seeing and photo-taking for late morning or afternoon.

    You will be happy to know that Walt Disney World Resort Transportation will begin operating 45 minutes before the earliest posted theme park opening time.  This includes early entry times, too!  In order to be one of the first Guests onto your transportation, I advise you to be at your transportation stop one hour before the posted early entry time for the theme park you will be visiting.

    I see that you will be visiting in just two weeks, how exciting!  Did you know that the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival has just begun?  If you haven't experienced this before, I highly recommend stopping by EPCOT and checking it out.  What I really enjoy about this festival is that it adds an extra layer of Magic to EPCOT, and you can enjoy all the delights of the festival while doing your normal theme park touring. 

    Have a Magical vacation, Ryan!  Please come back and visit us again with any more Disney vacation planning questions.  We are always happy to help you plan your next Magical adventure!

    See Ya Real Soon,
