    My family and I will be arriving at WDW on Thursday Dec 10th and staying at the Pop Century. What time do you recommend we catch the bus each morning to be at the various parks by the 9am opening?

    Hi Sandra,

    Your trip is so close now, how exciting!

    I always allow an hour to get around WDW property using the Disney buses so for a 9am opening I would aim to be at the bus stop at 8am. Although the bus journeys aren't very long, 20 minute maximum, you'll often find you need to wait for a bus to arrive which can also take up to about 20 minutes. Hopefully though you'll be as lucky as I was on my last trip where everytime I got to the stop a bus was sitting there waiting!
    Leaving an hour also allows you a little extra time to get through bag check and the turnstiles so you're in prime position for when the rope drops to let you into the park!

    Have a fantastic trip,
