    Ritzy, thanks for answering my question. I do have a question with regards to transportation around the parks, if I want to be early when they open how early should I get the bus, how often they ride?

    Hi Anadellysplata!


    Thanks for coming back to our Moms Panel for more answers to all your Disney Vacation planning questions.


    Disney transportation from Disney Resort Hotels to Disney Theme Parks typically begin running about an hour before Rope Drop (park opening). So for example, if you are staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge (AKL) and wish to visit Magic Kingdom (MK) on a day it opens at 8:00 a.m., you'll be able to catch the bus at 7:00 a.m. Buses usually run about every 20 minutes, and it will take about 30 minutes to commute between AKL and MK. Therefore, plan on being at AKL's bus depot about an hour before Rope Drop at MK. Please let me know if I can answer any other Disney Vacation planning questions for you.


    Wishing you a most memorable visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
