    If you are staying at an off site resort, are you able to park in Downtown Disney and take the bus to MK? If so, how do you find out its scheduled runs? We are going Dec. 25-29. I am thinking the traffic will be crazy during this time.

    Hi Crystal!

     The dates of your visit are indeed busy, and I suggest getting to the Magic Kingdom parking lot early to make the most of your time! Parking at Downtown Disney is not going to help you get to Magic Kingdom, since the buses from there do not go to any of the parks. In addition, I find the Downtown Disney parking area to be nearly full often. 

     I am not so much concerned with the traffic as I am with getting to the park early to avoid the rush of guests trying to enter the park at the same time. I prefer waking up early to ensure I get from parking lot to Main Street in as little time as possible! Also, it is possible for the park to fill to capacity by the later part of the morning or early afternoon, so it's best to be there early and make the most of your visit. 

     The Magic Kingdom parking lot is located at the Transportation and Ticket Center and from there, you can hop on the monorail or ferry to Magic Kingdom. Hope this helps!
