    Hi my husband and i are traveling with another couple to disney and are staying in Buena Vista. How is the shuttle sevice to disney and do we have to book the bus? what rides do you reccomend for a 11mnt and 15 month old (we will only do 1 park)

    Hi Mary,

    My extended family and I stayed at one of the resorts in Lake Buena Vista this past summer.  The shuttle service was fine, but we found that it was a very long wait for the shuttle during the time we stayed.  Therefore, after trying this once, we ended up driving our own cars to the Parks each time.

    You did not mention the particular resort in which you are staying, so I am unable to let you know whether or not you would be required to arrange the shuttle services through your resort.  Our resort simply told us to go outside to the bus stop on the sidewalk in front of the hotel, along with many guests from several surrounding resorts.  As I said, the line was long, and the wait extensive.  It may not be as crowded depending upon the time of year or crowd levels at the Parks when you are vacationing.

    I recommend you check with guest services at your resort to find out what amenities and transportation service they offer to you, making your arrangements in advance.

    With your young children, I recommend a day at the Magic Kingdom.  There are many attractions that are appropriate for infants and toddlers, such as "it's a small world", Peter Pan's Flight, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Jungle Cruise, The Walt Disney World Railroad, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, and more.

    Have a wonderful time!
