    How to reach the parks before opening time with disney transportation from caribean beach resort. It looks like buses and skyliner opens only 1 hr before park opening and sometimes you don't make it on time.

    Hello, Nivedita! I'm glad you've stopped by planDisney with your question. 

    Transportation to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks from Walt Disney World Resort Hotels typically start running 45 minutes to 1 hour prior to each park opening. I love to be at the theme parks first thing in the morning, to avoid the crowds and get some of my must-do's in before the lines tend to get busy. Typically, when I use the complimentary theme park transportation, I like to be at the bus stop waiting for the first bus to arrive right at an hour early. That pretty much will guarantee being on the first bus, boat or first in line for the Disney Skyliner. I've never had any issues with not making it to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks before the actual opening time. Once you arrive at the parks, you'll go through security and get your temperature checked and then be able to enter the theme park and head to your first attraction of the day. If you are still concerned you won't make it in time for the park opening, you can always use a ride share service to get you there. Keep in mind that the parking lots don't open until 45 minutes prior to the park opening either, so your rideshare driver won't be able to get you there much earlier either. If the parking lot isn't open when you arrive, using a rideshare service, they will have to wait in line near the parking attendant booths until the lanes open to let you in. Then they will be able to drop you off near the entrance of the Walt Disney World Theme Park you are visiting that morning. 

    Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is actually one of my favorites to stay at. I think you are really going to enjoy it too. I love how tropical the resort feels when walking around with the white sandy beaches and hammocks to relax in. Plus, the main pool is so much fun. There you'll find two water slides, water cannons, a splash pad for the little ones and a really nice hot tub to relax in after a long day at the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. 

    Nivedita, I think you'll be able to get to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks each morning with plenty of time to spare using the complimentary transportation. It hasn't let me down yet! If you have any other questions before your trip, please feel free to come back and ask. Have fun!

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
