    Our first trip to WDW! Grandparents, son & wife, grandchildren (4, 5 1/2, 8 months) & niece are staying at Boulder Ridge Villas. We plan to take breaks each day and utilize our Park Hopper tickets. Is Park transportation frequent and reliable?

    Hi Antoinette,

    I am so excited to hEAR you are planning your family's first ever visit to Walt Disney World Resort! You definitely picked a great time to stay at the newly re-imagined Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. This majestic Resort, which pays homage to the great national park lodges of the Pacific northwest, is a wonderful place to stay, with easy water transportation to Magic Kingdom, and convenient complimentary Disney bus transportation to the remaining three Walt Disney World Theme Parks, two Water Parks, and Disney Springs.

    As you are travelling with young children, you are smart to be planning daily breaks. When my kids were young we started each day bright and early, arriving for rope drop and taking advantage of Extra Magic Hours. Then, shortly after lunch, we would leave the parks and head back to our Disney Resort for a swim, nap and quiet time. By suppertime we were recharged and ready to head back to the parks for some evening fun!

    Disney's complimentary Resort transportation and buses run continuously (approximately every 20 minutes) from early morning up until 2 hours after the Theme Parks close each night and will get you from your Resort to the parks with ease. I love the convenience of sitting back and letting someone else do the driving, focusing all my attention on having fun with my family and enjoying our vacation. Since you will have Park Hopper Tickets, you may also wish to consider purchasing Express Transportation, which provides a faster, seamless direct transportation between parks.

    Wishing you a Magical upcoming Walt Disney World vacation with your family!
