    Hi, I know that resort buses start transportation 2 hours before parks open. Is there a basic schedule for how they operate? Such as every 20 minutes starting on the hour? Would like to plan ahead for buses if I can in morning & afternoons. Thanks, And

    Hi Andrea,

    I understand your desire to try and plan out your transportation needs as much as possible. I never want to waste one extra minute that we could be spending in a Disney park.

    Unfortunately there is no set schedule for any of the Disney transportation in regards to their daily operations. The buses run approximately twenty minutes apart. However, during peak travel times, we have seen buses for the same stops run within a few minutes of each other. The buses also get off track by extra crowds, lost guests, traffic, loading and unloading wheelchairs and much more which can delay them from their schedule. Disney does a great job monitoring the transportation needs of the crowds and attempts to move buses around to meet the needs of the guests but sometimes this does not work as quickly as you may like.

    When moving from my resort to park or back again, I like to allow at least 60 minutes of transportation time. This allows for unforseen delays. Hope this helps at least a little with your planning.
