    First Disney visit since I was a baby! Very excited! How long does it take to get to each park from Disneys Caribbean Beach Resort using Disney transportation? Want to be able to plan for dining on time. Is it easy to visit other resorts for food/looking?

    How d'you do and shake hands, Alice!

    Welcome down the planDisney rabbit hole. We're all mad here about all things Disney, and I'm so happy to be helping you work through this extra special visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth. Now I'm not exactly the White Rabbit, but you can follow me as I walk you through a few points on Disney Transportation and how to get to those reservations. 

    Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort was the first Disney Moderate Resort I ever stayed in and I absolutely loved it. During your visit, you'll have access to the Disney Skyliner to get to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios and bus travel to get you to Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. It's only about a 10-15 minute commute to any of the 4 Theme Parks or Disney Springs. I personally always recommend leaving about an hour of space to get to all reservations. That leaves enough time to wait for your mode of transportation to arrive, travel, get through security, and time to walk through the park without feeling rushed.

    Making an Advanced Dining Reservation is the easiest way to ensure a visit to other Disney Resorts Collection hotels. My first time visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village was through having a reservation for Sanaa. If you're driving or taking a rideshare from your hotel to another, be prepared to show the Cast Member at the gate your dining reservation in the My Disney Experience app. Now if you're going directly from a theme park, you can just hop onto whichever mode of Disney Transporation that's headed to whichever resort houses the restaurant you're reserved for. 

    Pro-tip: The jolly caucus race for Advanced Dining Reservations begins exactly 60 days prior to your arrival so be prepared to make a mad dash for the ones you want!

    Alice, I give myself very good advice and I hope I've given you some too. If you find yourself with any more questions or if anything feels curiouser and curiouser, please feel free to come through the looking glass to find me again!

    Happy planning!
