    Thx.for all the info. You guys are like rock stars! I read everyday. Staying at CBR 6/19-6/24. DD8 has res. at BBB at DTD@ 930 on 6/19 then res. at Akershus 11:50. What is best way to get to Epcot via Disney transp. from DTD? Enough time to make lunch res?

    I think your plan is just barely do-able. I'm going to assume that the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique will be running on time since your appointment is fairly early in the morning. Depending on what type of package you'll be getting at the BBB, how many photos you take, etc., your time there will be 40-60 minutes.

    There is no direct bus service from Downtown Disney to Epcot. Your best bet would be to get on a bus headed to a resort that's very near Epcot, my suggestion would be the Boardwalk or Beach Club. Take whichever comes first (they may even be the same bus) and get off at whichever one you arrive at first. The bus ride itself should be fairly short, maybe ten minutes. From the Boardwalk or Beach Club, you can walk for about 5-7 minutes and get to the International Gateway entrance to Epcot. You'll go through security and the ticket turnstiles here. This usually runs quickly because so few people use this entrance. Then you'll enter the park and circle around the World Showcase area until you get to the Norway pavilion. Depending on how quickly the bus comes and how fast you walk, the door-to-door from the BBB to Akershus is an hour to an hour and 15 minutes. This works out perfectly for your reservation.

    Oh, and thanks for your kind words. Do you think you could you tell that rock star thing to my kids the next time I ask them to clean their rooms? Maybe I'd get a better response from them if they thought I was like Hannah Montana: regular carpooling mom by day, secret celebrity by night (giggle, giggle). Maybe I'll get a Hannah Montana makeover at the BBB next time I'm at WDW to help them get the picture :-)

    Hope you have a great trip!
