    We are staying at Bay Laker Towers June 5-13. How do we get to EPCOT?

    Hi Steven! Welcome to planDisney!

    You are going to love your stay at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort! My family last stayed there in October and I just returned from a few nights at Disney's Contemporary Resort a couple of days ago, so it's safe to say that I'm a big fan of this Disney Resorts Collection hotel. You can't beat the short walk to Magic Kingdom Park and the views are GORGEOUS!

    While the EPCOT monorail is not currently running, getting to EPCOT is still a breeze thanks to Walt Disney World bus transportation. You will simply hop on a bus that will take you directly from Disney's Contemporary Resort to EPCOT. If you want to be there when EPCOT first opens (which I recommend), my experience was that getting to the bus stop at 9:30 AM for an 11:00 AM theme park opening had me towards the front of the line for the bus, with EPCOT actually opening around 10:15 AM when I arrived. This way, I was able to head to one of the most popular attractions first and then waited for the attraction to open closer to 11:00 AM. It was a great start to a day full of adventure!

    I hope this helps you plan your EPCOT day, Steven! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
