    Hi, on mornings with extra magic hours, what time do the first buses pick people up from the hotels? And what time should we be at the bus stop to make sure we get to the parks for opening? Thanks!!

    Hello Tara,

    The buses usually start approximately 1 hour before park opening whether it is "regular" hours or "Extra Magic Hours".  For example, if Magic Kingdom had "Early Extra Hours" at 8:00am then the buses will start running at around 7:00am and I would be at the bus stop at approximately 6:45am.  If it is the peak season and there are a lot of people waiting in line then I would probably be there at 6:30am if I wanted to guarantee I get on that first bus otherwise you may have to wait 15-20 minutes for the next one to arrive!  This bus schedule would be the same for park closing and the buses will generally operate 1 hour after park closing, but please keep in mind that Disney will never leave anyone stranded...if you are still in the park or in a long line up for the bus and it is past 1 hour after park closing, they will operate until everyone has been transferred to their WDW Resorts!

    Best wishes,
