    Hi Mom's Panel! Love all of your info! My family of 5 will be staying at the Caribbean Beach in late May and early June. On previous trips we have driven to the parks. We are considering the buses on this trip. Which is faster and more convenient? Thanks!


    You didn't mention why you were considering taking the buses, but if I were in your shoes, I would still opt to drive your car.  My only exception is to the Magic Kingdom where you have to park at the Ticket & Transportation Center and then hop on the monorail or ferry to the park. That park is not convenient by car.

    For the most part, our family has found that we can get to the other parks in half the time it takes to ride the bus, even with having to navigate our way and possibly loading a tram once we unload. But what makes my recommendation even more strong is because of the resort at which you're staying. Caribbean Beach Resort sports a vast campus and the bus makes multiple stops. By the time you've gone to every stop, you could be in the car lot of the theme park.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
