    Thanks for all your help. I've noticed the hours at Hollywood Studios for Mar 10 has been changed to 8am-10pm with EMH from 7-8am. We are staying at CBR. Will the buses be operating early enough for as to be there for the opening? Is a 7am open normal?

    Great news, Cathy!  

    The buses will begin running one hour prior to when the parks open, including Extra Magic Hours. You shouldn't have any difficulty arriving at Disney's Hollywood Studios prior to 7:00 am.  

    When we are trying to be at a park when it opens, we allow at least 45-60 minutes for bus transportation just in case we don't catch the bus immediately and to allow for other stops (fyi, the Caribbean Beach Resort has many stops throughout the resort). When we feel like we are in a pinch, we sometimes grab a taxi instead and head to the Grand Floridian Resort. From there, we just catch the monorail over to the park.

    I did confirm the park hours at Disney's Hollywood Studios on March 10, 2012; they are 8:00 am to 10:00 pm with Extra Magic Hours from 7:00 am to 8:00 am.  By the way, our first stop at this park:  Toy Story Mania to either walk on or get fast passes or both!  It can have very, very long waits.

    Thank you for the question; please let me know if we can help again.
