    Hello, we are staying at POR and I was wondering how the bus system works to get to the parks. What time do the buses leave the hotel and how often does it return? We want to get to the parks before they open. Thank you!

    Hi Kristin,

    My family are big fans of using Disney's complimentary transportation. It is a very convenient and hassle-free way to travel around Walt Disney World.

    Complimentary transportation is available one hour prior to Disney Theme Park opening time and up to 3 hours after Disney Theme Park closing time.

    If you want to get to the parks before they open, I would recommend that you be at the bus stop at your resort an hour prior to the scheduled opening time of the park which you wish to visit.

    Buses run from Disney's Port Orleans Resort to the parks every 20-minutes or so continually throughout each day.  When you arrive at the bus stop, you will see different areas to queue for buses to each of the parks. Simply wait in line at the designated area for the park you wish to visit.

    I hope that this information has been of help and wish you a magical trip!
