    Hi moms panels! Excited to be visiting WDW for the first time! I am worried that I will be spending 2 much time trying 2 figure out how travel works within the resorts. Do buses run 24-hours? Any suggestions on how to learn the transportation methods?

    Hi Khadijah,


    I am very excited that you will be visiting Walt Disney World for the first time!  You will fall in love as soon as you walk down Main Street U.S.A and see Cinderella's castle.  It is so magical and beautiful that I still tear up!  I just want you to not worry about anything when you visit and just enjoy yourself on your vacation.  The bus transportation system works very well.  You will be able to catch the bus from your resort.  The buses start about an hour before the parks open and run continuously until an hour after the parks close.  Buses will also operate until 2:00 am from Downtown Disney. You are able to take buses to and from your resort to any of the theme parks, water parks, and Downtown Disney.  There are no buses that go between resorts.  If you want to go to another resort, the best way would be to use the Monorail if that resort in on the Monorail (ie Grand Floridian, the Polynesian, and the Contemporary) if you are in the Magic Kingdom or Epcot.  You can walk to the Boardwalk and Beach and Yacht Club Resorts from Epcot or Hollywood Studios.  For other resort to resort transportation, I would recommend going to Downtown Disney and then taking the bus to whatever resort you would like to visit or eat there.  Please send me a follow up question if I can help you further.  I know your vacation will be magical!
