    What time should we leave Pop Century resort to be at Magic Kingdom at opening time? Wonder what amount of travel time to allot?

    Hi Denise!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm so excited for you to stay at the newly renovated Disney's Pop Century Resort! I think you'll be very impressed with the new sleek design added to each of the resort hotel rooms.

    If you plan on taking Walt Disney World Resort Bus Transportation, it will begin running 45 minutes prior to park opening. If you would like to be there right as Magic Kingdom opens, I would recommend being on the very first bus, if possible. This will give you enough time for the drive itself and security prior to entering. If you will be driving yourself, you will need to go to the Transportation & Ticket Center first then use the Walt Disney World Monorail System, which begins operation 30 minutes prior to park opening. I would leave your resort hotel room around the same time regardless, about an hour prior to opening. 

    I hope this helps in getting your day started off right at Magic Kingdom! Please come back and let us know if you have any other questions.
