    First trip to WDW in October with parents, grandparents and 3 small girls. Staying at POFQ but VERY nervous aobut navigating to and from parks on bus system with such a large group. Any advice for us? How much time should we budget for trips to parks etc

    Hi Rita,

    We visited WDW with 11 people (one of whom was in a wheelchair and two children were in strollers), so we had quite a "load" with each bus ride.  The bus system made it so easy!  We never had to worry about booster/car seats, who was going to drive, and how to get from one place to another.  Our party was always able to stay together; and if we felt we might be split up because of crowds, we would just let others on the bus and wait for the next one to arrive.  I'm hopeful you will find the Disney transportation just as convenient and mindless.  

    The travel times from Pop Century to the various parks are as follows:

    Magic Kingdom:  25 minutes
    Epcot:  20 minutes
    Disney's Hollywood Studios:  15 minutes
    Disney's Animal Kingdom:  15 minutes
    Downtown Disney:  20 minutes

    The wait time for buses can be anywhere from no wait to 15 minutes on an average day.
