    Where can I find a timetable for the bus and boat service from the Beach Club Resort to the parks ?

    Welcome to planDisney, Sonja! Thanks for stopping by with your question. 

    Sonja, I love hanging up my keys and letting Mickey Mouse do the driving while I’m on vacation, so I appreciate this question! 

    Officially transportation from the Disney Resorts Collection hotels to the theme parks begins 45 minutes before park opening, however my family and I have had good luck catching an earlier bus on some days (when Tinker Bell turns all the lights green to match her outfit)! Currently as the Walt Disney World Resort remains in a state of phased reopening, the best way to view wait times is AT the bus stop or boat launch. 
    I did speak to a Cast Member who let me know that the bus wait times feature on the My Disney Experience Mobile App is on pause, but IS being tested for reintroduction. Sonja, we don’t have any word on when that button might pop up again on the My Disney Experience Mobile App, but I’ll be wishing on a star for you that it’s prior to your vacation. 

    Finally, Sonja, I’ll also encourage you to speak with a Cast Member at Disney’s Beach Club Resort about the transportation as the Cast Members who work at the Front Desks will often have the best experience and knowledge regarding the frequency of bus or boat pickup. 

    Sonja, whenever you arrive at the parks and whichever mode of transportation you take, I hope that your days are filled with Wonder and Magic. Please come on back to planDisney with any additional questions you might have. As much as Lightning McQueen loves racing, that’s how much we hEAR at planDisney love helping guests GEAR UP for the perfect trip.
