    Staying at Grand Floridian and want to rope drop Hollywood Studios and taking advantage of early hours. What time should we be at the bus stop at GF? Thanks!

    Welcome to planDisney, Wanda!

    It's good to see a fellow Guest from Virginia. Wow, a stay at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa sounds "practically perfect in every way." Not only are you a short walk away from my favorite Theme Park, but you'll be able to enjoy exquisite dining, fabulous views, and elegant décor. You're in for a fabulous time!

    As a Disney Resorts Guest, you'll be able to take advantage of all the amazing benefits, such as extra time in the Theme Parks. Every Guest can take advantage of early Theme Park entry. This 30-minute head start means that you'll be able to ride some of the more popular attractions before crowds get busy. And it gets even better: you can enjoy this benefit on each day of your stay—in any park! Since you're planning on visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios, I'd recommend going straight to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, or Slinky Dog Dash. As a Disney Resort Guest, you'll be able to take advantage of the complimentary bus service, which begins 45 minutes prior to park opening. Just make sure you check the calendar beforehand since park hours can change day to day. I'd suggest getting to the bus stop 60-50 minutes before park opening to make sure you're first on that bus!

    Wanda, did you know that Guests staying at Disney's Grand Floridan Resort and Spa can also enjoy the extra benefit of Extended Evening Theme Park Hours in select parks on select nights? This is my very favorite time in the parks due to the romantic ambiance and shorter wait times.

    I'm sure you'll have an incredible vacation, Wanda. Enjoy every magical moment!
