    What is the latest time that buses transport back to resort hotels from Downtown Disney? What time do stores in DD open and close mid-December? What is distance/time to DD from Caribbean Resort?

    Hi Lori! The buses will continue to run from Downtown Disney area until around 2am each night. For the late buses you will need to catch them on the West Side area.

    December store hours can vary according to what they might expect for crowds so be sure and check with your resort the day you plan to head out there. Generally most open around 9:30 and close anywhere from 10-11pm. On weekends you might find some open later. Since December is a shopping month it is recommended you not try to drive to this area yourself as parking is at a minimum and if you need a spot then go early!

    The Caribbean Beach Resort is close to Downtown Disney and is only about a 12-15 minute bus ride. In December this can be a bit longer depending on the time of day as again the traffic is quite congested. Also remember to add in your wait time for a bus on both ends when figuring out your timing.

    Enjoy doing some holiday shopping....this is the best place to do it!
