    Is it quicker to take the bus from Caribbean Resort to Epcot/ then jump on the Moneral to Magic Kingdom, then taking the bus all the way to M.Kingdom? Heard waits can be as long as 90 min.for bus. Looking for less time waiting, shot cut routes w/ transport

    Hi Debbie,

    Typically it is much shorter to take the direct bus to the Magic Kingdom from Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort.  Remember, you might end up waiting longer for a bus to Epcot to arrive than the one that is Magic Kingdom-bound.  It would be rare for you to have to wait 90 minutes for a bus to the Magic Kingdom.  I've been to Walt Disney World dozens of times and I've never waited that long for a bus. 

    Of course, if you find yourself waiting too long for a Magic Kingdom-bound bus, hopping on the bus to Epcot is not a bad idea.  I always try to incorporate at least one monorail ride in my vacation plans so I bet your family would enjoy the ride from Epcot to the Ticket & Transportation Center.  Just remember, though, that upon your arrival at the Ticket & Transportation Center you'll have to transfer to either the ferry or the resort monorail loop to ultimately arrive at the Magic Kingdom. 

    As you can see, the direct bus to the Magic Kingdom is less complicated and likely to take less time.

    Have fun during your upcoming vacation and don't hesitate to send more transportation questions my way.  I love them!

    Best wishes for a vacation sprinkled with extra pixie dust!
