    1. What hours does the Disney Bus Service work? 2. Do you charge the credit card immediately or do you wait until closer to the reservation date? 3. Tell me about wristbands at Disney? Will they still be around in 2022?

    Hello, Darrell! Welcome to planDisney, and thank you for your question! It sounds to me like you are planning a Walt Disney World vacation for 2022. How exciting! With so many exciting updates and changes on the horizon, there’s never been a better time to visit!

    I’d be happy to try to shed some light for you. Disney Bus Transportation is an incredible benefit to anyone staying on Disney property. The buses will transport you to and from most locations you wish to visit, and the hours of operation are from 45 minutes before Theme Park opening to 1 hour after Park closing. The My Disney Experience Mobile App provides handy estimated departure times from Disney Resort Hotels. The Bus Depots at the Theme Parks have posted estimates of when the buses will be arriving! Check out the Experience Updates pages to see the latest information on all the safety measures in place to ensure a safe ride on Disney motor coaches.

    Next, when you reserve a Walt Disney World vacation at least 30 days before departure, the only requirement is a $200 deposit! Then, 30 days before you leave, your full balance will be due. You can choose to make payments before that date at your own pace, but nothing more will be charged until that time! Lastly, Magic Bands are still alive and well! They are no longer going to be complimentary, but they are available for purchase! So many people choose to buy one that expresses their own personal sense of style and favorite Disney character or memory! This amazing piece of technology can serve as your one-stop key to your vacation!

    Darrell, I hope that this information is helpful to you as you continue planning and dreaming! Here at planDisney, it is our pleasure to help Guests plan their perfect vacations. Please feel free to come back and see us again anytime we can help!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
