    I know buses start 1 hr before the park opens but what does that mean? e.g., if AK opens at 8, does only transportation to AK start at 7 or does it go everywhere? If MK opens at 9am that same day do you have wait until 8 to go to MK or ride the monorail?

    Hello, Kathryn,

    I would look at each park individually when planning transportation times. If Disney's Hollywood Studios has Extra Magic Hours and opens at 8:00 am, the buses/boats to that park will begin running around 7:00 am. If on the same day Disney's Animal Kingdom opens at 9:00 am, the buses to that park will begin running around 8:00 am. 

    If you have early dining reservations at the parks before they are open to the public, there are buses available to help guests arrive on time for their reservations.  Don't hesitate to stop at any of the resort lobby concierge desks if you have any questions once you arrive. You'll also often find a cast member at some of the resort bus stops in the morning to help with questions guests have; bus drivers can also help with any questions you may have. 

    Thank you for the question; please let us know if you have any further questions.
