    The hotel transportation can bring you to the park 1 hr before the park open ?

    Greetings Space Ranger Sheila!

    Resort and Theme Park Transportation for Guests staying at select Disney Resort Hotels is one of the many benefits included when staying at a Disney Resort Hotel. Bus transportation generally begins 45 minutes prior to park opening time. While the Monorail begins operating about 30 minutes prior to the earliest park opening time. Depending on which Resort Hotel you are staying at, will help determine which transportation option is best for you! Don’t forget you are also able to travel by boat and sky!

    If you are looking to arrive at your destination sooner than what is offered through the complimentary transportation options, I suggest a Lyft in a Disney Minnie Van! Disney’s Minnie Van can whisk you around the Walt Disney World Resort in style. The hours of operation for this service are 6:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m.. So if you are needing to arrive somewhere early, this is the best option! My family and I had an early morning breakfast at a different Disney Resort Hotel and the Minnie Van worked out perfectly for us! (Tip: When using any of the available transportation options, be sure to give your family plenty of travel time).

    To Infinity & Beyond!
