    Hi moms! How long will it take to get from parking lot to the entrance of Hollywood Studios and/or Epcot? Trying to plan when we need to leave hotel in order to be at the parks for rope drop? We'll be driving car each day. Staying about 10 min off property

    Hi Janette! Walt Disney World encompasses approximately 40 square miles, so a hotel "ten minutes from Disney property" may be farther away from the parks than you think. If you want to be at the parks for rope drop, I recommend that you plan to leave your hotel 45 minutes to an hour before the park's posted opening time. Trams run continuously from the Epcot and Hollywood Studios parking lots to the park entrances, so once you've parked your car you'll be at the entrance in 5 to 10 minutes. 

    Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We'd love to help!
