    How late do buses run from Parks to Jamba House? We have dinner reservations for 7:30, and park closes at 8:00. Do you know when you will be getting more Darth Vadar wrist bands? If purchased at your websit, how does it get loaded for reservation?

    Hey Beth!

    It looks like you are already working hard on planning a practically perfect Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Whenever my family stays at the Walt Disney World Resort, we always primarily rely on Walt Disney World Resort Transportation. It saves my family money, and I don’t have to worry about finding my way around property, and I also don’t have to worry about parking! Buses typically operate at approximately 20-minute intervals. You can travel to and from a Disney Resort Hotel to and from Disney Theme Parks, Disney Springs, and even Water Parks (which operate at approximately 30-minute intervals.)

    Bus service from Disney Resort hotels begins approximately 45 minutes prior to park opening and ends approximately 1 hour prior to park closing. Return service from Disney Theme Parks to Disney Resort hotels ends approximately 2 hours after park closing. It is essential to allow yourself at least 90 minutes to get from place to place when relying on Bus Transportation. One option that my family and I have been using when we have a Dining Reservation at a location different than the Theme Park we are visiting is the Minnie Van Service. Connected by Lyft, you can get around Walt Disney World Resort quickly in a personalized ride.

    Your MagicBand will allow you to travel easier during your vacation. You can use it to enter the parks, unlock your Disney Resort hotel room, and purchase food and merchandise. MagicBand offerings vary based on demand, so at this time, I do not have an exact date that the Darth Vader MagicBands will be back in stock. Once you select a MagicBand, it often will link automatically. If it doesn’t link automatically, sign in to your My Disney Experience account and select “MagicBand.” On the back of your MagicBand, there is a 12-digit ID number on the interior of the band, behind Mickey. Enter the ID number will link it to your account. You can then assign each MagicBand to the person it belongs to.

    I hope that you and your family have a magical time!
