    Do the shuttle buses at Disney Resorts leave early enough to be at the park for Magic hours?

    Hi Marci,

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I see that you're planning a vacation for next February. An escape to sunny Florida in the middle of winter sounds AMAZING, plus you'll be able to enjoy the Epcot International Festival of the Arts! With delicious dining options, stunning artistic creations that capture the Disney spirit, and incredible live performances, I definitely recommend checking it out. My husband and I really loved it last year!

    As far as transportation goes, I'm happy to let you know that yes, Disney buses will be running early enough for you to take full advantage of all of the magic and fun. Buses begin running at least 45 minutes before each theme park opens to any Guests, including Extra Magic Hours, so you should have no trouble getting there early enough to enjoy them in the morning. Extra Magic Hours are just one of the many perks to staying at a Disney Resort hotel, and you'll love having that hour in the morning before the park opens to the general public to enjoy some of your favorite attractions with smaller crowds. I hope you have a blast!

    Please let us know if you have any other questions as you're planning your trip, Marci, and have a truly magical vacation!
