    Hi there... Heading to AoA mid October and am trying to decide as to renting a car or not. Any insight on wait times for WDW transportation during this time? Also, are there movie under the stars at this time of the year? Thanks!

    Hi, Claire!  The average wait time for bus transportation shouldn't be any longer than 10 to 15 minutes.  Even when the parks are busy, they add extra buses to help alleviate the crowds, so your wait time shouldn't really be much longer than that at any time.  The best reasons to have your own car is if you plan to visit places outside of Walt Disney World, or if you have little ones who tend to be their leas patient at the end of a long, busy day.

    There were movies under the stars at that time last year, so I would hope they have them when you're there in October.  It is such a great way to end a theme park day and wind down for bed.

    If you need any more help, come on back and see me!  Your trip will be here before you know it, and we want to make sure it's the most magical vacation ever!
