    We have a 12 noon appt downtown at the Bib Bob boutique for a 4:50 reservation at 1900 PF. What is the best transportation to get from downtown to the GF? Also, what about the costumes? Buy it there or buy in advance and bring it in?


    You will be able to take a bus directly from Downtown Disney to the Grand Floridian. The bus stops are just outside each end of Downtown Disney, and the areas are clearly labeled to show you which bus goes to which resort. It's very easy.

    Myself, I would purchase the costume in advance and bring it along. While the costumes in Disney are theme park exclusives that can't be purchased in your Disney Store at home, they also carry an exclusive price tag. My own three daughters love to play dress up and do so frequently, so their costumes take a lot of abuse. I personally prefer to purchase something less expensive, so it isn't so sickening to see it torn up later!

    Have a wonderful vacation!
