    At what time do the buses start running in the morning?

    Hi Rachel! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! With your Walt Disney World Resort vacation a few short days away, I know you must be getting so excited!!

    You are going to love the Walt Disney World Bus Service! Sit back and relax while Disney does the driving! 

    Bus service from your Disney Resort hotel will begin 45 minutes prior to park opening and will end 1 hour prior to park closing. 

    Return service to your Disney Resort hotel ends 2 hours after park closing.

    It sounds like you are planning to start your day enjoying theme park opening. Great idea! We rarely miss theme park opening when we are vacationing at Walt Disney World Resort! We try to be at the bus stop 1 hour prior to park opening. Our goal is to be on the 1st bus to the theme park but if we miss it, we have plenty of time to make the next one and still arrive with time to go through security and get in line with all of our Disney loving friends. We enjoy a fabulous morning in the theme park and then head back to our Resort hotel in the afternoon for some pool time. Our day wraps up either back in a theme park or enjoying dinner somewhere throughout Walt Disney World Resort. I'm getting excited just thinking about it!

    Please let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    Theme park opening is such a fun way to start the day! Enjoy every magical moment!
