    Hello, I just have a general question. To get into the parks when they open on time with Disney Trans or on days when the parks have Extra Hours, what time do the buses/boats start running? How early should we wait to get toparks from BW Villas?

    Hi Alison,

    Thank you for asking me this question!  The Walt Disney World parks are open for Extra Magic Hours either one hour early (usually 8 am) or up to three hours later after the normal park closing for guests staying on property.  I would suggest using the Park Hours link to help you plan your day.  The bus transportation runs one hour before the parks open.  So for Extra Magic Hours, you will be able to catch the bus for that day at 7 am.  Remember the beauty of staying at Boardwalk is that you can walk to Epcot or Hollywood Studios.  When you are going to the Magic Kingdom or Animal Kingdom, I would try to get on the 7 am bus to make sure you are there at park opening.  I really love taking advantage of the Extra Magic Hours, Alison.  Be sure to use the FAST PASS system at that time as you can ride many of the popular attractions at each park.  This is especially true in Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom as well as Splash and Space Mountains.  I know you will have such a magical vacation.  Please send me a follow up question if I can help you further.
