    Hi Panel ! your panel is great ! What time do the buses start running in the morning back to the resorts from downtown disney? I would like to book some breakfast meals at other resorts, we will be at SS resort. Thank you for your help.

    Hi Tracey!


    Congratulations on your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!


    The Downtown Disney Area buses are scheduled to begin running anytime between 8:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. However, I wouldn't recommend relying on transportation from the Downtown Disney Area to other Disney Resort Hotels, particularly if you need to get there fast and early.


    Last September I went to the Downtown Disney Area first thing in the morning for a last minute gift. I was scheduled for a Magical Express pick up at Disney's Pop Century Resort later that same morning. I waited about 45 minutes before my bus arrived at the transportation depot located in the Downtown Disney Area - Marketplace. I barely made it back to my Resort in time to catch my scheduled Magical Express. Granted, this might have been an isolated incident and poor planning on my part. However, for early morning reservations at other Disney Resort Hotels, I would recommend calling a cab instead. Otherwise, book lunches rather than breakfasts!


    Also keep in mind there are no buses running to Disney Theme Parks from the Downtown Disney Area. So if you make reservations at dining locations inside Disney Theme Parks, your best bet is to catch transportation directly from Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort to your dining reservations. I hope this information helps you plan ahead. Please let me know if I can answer any other Disney Vacation planning questions for you.


    Enjoy a most memorable visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
