    My family and I (4 ppl) will be travelling to the WDW Resort in Florida for the Christmas holiday. We are staying off-site, and some people suggest using a shuttle service, and others suggest driving ourselves to the parks? What is your suggestion?

    Hi Robert!

    It depends on how often a shuttle will run from your hotel to the theme parks.  One of the huge advantages of staying on Walt Disney World property is the Disney buses run about every 15 minutes.  Most off site hotels shuttle buses do not run that often, and some only run for part of the day.

    Parking at Walt Disney World in the theme parks is relatively easy though it does cost money.  My personal recommendation would be to plan on driving yourself to the parks, but it really depends on the shuttle bus service offered by your hotel.

    Enjoy planning and write back if you have any more questions!
