    What time do the buses start running at Beach Club to the parks (although, thankfully, we can walk to Epcot)? I want to plan early breakfasts in the parks (8am) but don't want to have to take a Minnie van each time. Thank you!

    Hi, Danielle! Thanks for bringing another great question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    One of the best benefits of being a Walt Disney World Resort hotel Guest is the complimentary transportation between your Resort hotel and the Theme Parks. Whether it’s a bus, boat or monorail, Resort Transportation will get you where you need to go quickly and efficiently.

    Walt Disney World Bus Service begins 45 minutes prior to Theme Park opening (including Extra Magic Hours) and continues until up to an hour after closing, so that may mean you need to find an alternative form of transportation if you want to book a dining reservation for an hour prior to official opening time. My recommendation is that you make those early morning reservations for something like Akershus Royal Banquet Hall at Epcot or the Disney Junior Play 'n Dine experience at Hollywood & Vine at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (since those are both “walkable” from Disney’s Beach Club Resort). Then you can explore alternative options like the Disney Minnie Van Service for your early morning reservations at Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park.

    Since you’ll be arriving next Spring, you’ll also have the option to use the Disney Skyliner between Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. You’ll have to walk to the Epcot International Gateway entrance to access it, but it will be a new, fun option for connecting those two Parks with each other and with four Walt Disney World Resort hotels, too.

    Please let us know if there’s anything else we can do to help you plan your itinerary for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation, Danielle! We hope to see you real soon.
