    We have 9:45pm reservations to CRT. Will the buses still be running to get back to our resort(Art of Animation), or should we plan on taking our car to the Magic Kingdom parking lot?

    Hi Erica!

    It looks like you will be enjoying a late dinner during your Walt Disney World stay. Cinderella's Royal Table is a magical choice in the Magic Kingdom and it is especially fun at night with all the park lights being reflected through the stained glass windows.

    You did not mention what date or time the park closes on that day of your reservation. But no matter what time you finish with your meal, Disney will guarantee bus transportation back to your resort. Sometimes they will combine resorts when it is quite late after park closing but they will not leave a guest stranded.

    I never recommend for a guest to drive to the Magic Kingdom as it is so much easier and closer to use the bus transportation. You are literally dropped off at the entrance and when you drive you have to use a parking lot tram and then the monorail or ferry to reach the entrance.

    The Disney Bus Service is so easy to use and very convenient when staying at a Disney resort. The buses will run for two hours after park closing and like I mentioned they will make sure all guests get back to their resorts from the parks.
