    We are staying at the Caribbean Beach Resort this September. We plan on taking advantage of the early park entry for Magic Kingdom. What is the best way to ensure we are at the park by 7:30-8 am? I am worried the busses will not be running early enough.

    Hi there, Ashley. Welcome to planDisney

    I see that your trip to the most magical place on earth is in just a little over a month's time. You've got to be getting so excited. It will be here before you know it. 

    Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is my favorite in the moderate category. Great choice! In fact, I've probably stayed at that particular resort more times than any of the others. I really enjoy it. The rooms are very spacious and laid out nicely. The pool and hot tub area are one of my favorite on property and I really enjoy the unique menu options at the different restaurants located throughout the property. 

    I am the type of person that likes to be one of the first few people through the gates each day at the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. I really believe getting there early just sets the day up for success. I love being able to cross off 2 or 3 of my must-do attractions first things with little to no wait time. I am always able to accomplish this using the complimentary transportation, Ashley. The buses to the theme parks start running each morning about 45 minutes prior to the theme park's scheduled opening time. So if Magic Kingdom Park opens at 8:00 a.m. for all Guests and 7:30 for on-property Guests, the bus would start running at 6:45 a.m. I personally like to be at the bus stop right at 1 hour prior to the early entry time that way I am one of the first ones on. This will get you to the theme parks in plenty of time to line up and get situated before they open for the day. There is no need to worry about not being there early enough, the complimentary transportation is the perfect option for you. 

    I hope this helps you plan out your mornings a little bit better, Ashley. If you have any other questions about this, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm here to help. 

    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
