    How long does it take to get from Epcot to the Caribbean Beach Resort? We have a fast pass at 3:50-4:50 for frozen but need to be back at the resort by 530. My daughter is in the Dance the World Parade and the bus leaves at 530. Is this realistic? TY!

    Hi, Melissa!

    I love families like yours - squeezing in every minute of magic possible. Hey, there is nothing wrong with that in my book!

    The actual drive time from Epcot to Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is under 15 minutes. However, you might have to wait up to 20 minutes for your bus to arrive, then depending on which bus stop you are, add an addition 10 minutes for your actual drop off. Looking at this, I would be a bit hesitant to go this route.

    But no worries, you can still make this work! I would plan to be in the
    Frozen Ever After FastPass+ line right at 3:50 p.m.  This is a very quick FastPass+ queue, so you should be on the ride and back off in a jiffy. This should have you back to the front gates of Epcot by 4:30 p.m.  This is where the creativity comes in....IF your Caribbean Beach bus happens to be there at that exact second you walk back to the bus depots, hop on and away you go. If not, there is a line of taxi drivers. Hop in a taxi and you will be back to your resort quickly. The fare should be around $20, but prices always change.

    If you do not want that added expense or are just too worried about time, then you may be better off rescheduling your FastPass+ time.  Whatever you decide, there is one thing you CANNOT change....You will be singing "Let it Go" for the rest of the day after riding Frozen Ever After. What is it about that tune that it just gets stuck in your head!

    Sending pixie dust and warm Olaf-style hugs!
