    MK is open 9-6 the day we have reservations at be our guest for 6:20. Will we be able to take the bus back to our resort? Staying at Saratoga springs. Also how long does skyliner stay running after park closes? Reservations @ beaches n cream for 8:05.

    Welcome BACK to planDisney, Christina! I am so happy to see you here asking another vacation question about your upcoming visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth. You have brought your question to the right place as you asked about two of my favorite topics: Disney and dining! Both Be Our Guest Restaurant and Beaches & Cream Soda Shop are excellent restaurants! I am so glad that you were able to secure dining reservations for these two incredible options. I highly recommend that you try the French Onion Soup at Be Our Guest Restaurant and if you are brave enough (and have as big of a sweet tooth as I do) the Kitchen Sink sundae from Beaches & Cream Soda Shop!

    One of the most convenient aspects of staying at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa is the proximity to Disney Springs. Since the resort is within walking distance from Disney Springs, this gives you additional transportation options. 

    Currently, the buses run from Magic Kingdom Park to the Disney Resort hotels and Disney Vacation Club Resorts, approximately an hour and 45 minutes after park closing. I would encourage you to show up for your Be Our Guest dinner reservation 15 to 20 minutes early so that you can be seated promptly at your reservation time. If you find that the buses are no longer running when you depart Magic Kingdom Park, you still have a few transportation options to Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa. You can select a ridesharing company, such as Lyft or Uber, to transport you to your resort for an additional cost. You can be picked up in front of Magic Kingdom Park or make the short walk over to the front of Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Another option is to walk over to Disney’s Contemporary Resort and catch the bus to Disney Springs. You can then walk or catch the bus transportation to Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa.

    The Disney Skyliner, my favorite mode of transportation in Walt Disney World, currently runs for an hour after the closing of EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. At this time, both EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios are scheduled to be open until 7 p.m. in April. This will allow you plenty of time to catch the Disney Skyliner from Disney’s Hollywood Studios to the EPCOT station, which is just a short walk from Disney’s Beach Club Resort and Beaches & Cream Soda Shop.

    I highly recommend that you confirm the bus and Disney Skyliner transportation times upon your arrival at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa, as the hours are subject to change. I hope your vacation in April is magical and that you make memories that you will cherish for a lifetime. Please stop back by planDisney any time we can answer your vacation questions. We are always here and eager to help!
