    How much time should we give ourselves (party of 8 with three small children) to get from our resort, Saratoga Springs, to the parks each morning? We would like to get there as early as possible.

    Hi Jamie!

    Congratulations on your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Getting an early start to your day is smart because you get to experience much more magic throughout your day.

    If you plan to use Disney Bus Transportation from Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, I recommend leaving your room about an hour prior to the opening park hours to give yourself time to leave the room, catch the bus and arrive at your chosen theme park for the day. If you are driving a personal vehicle, I recommend leaving about 90 minutes prior to the park opening to give yourself time to arrive, park, board the courtesy tram or monorail, and begin your day.

    Please let us know if you need additional assistance prior to your arrival.

    Have a magical time!
