    What time should we plan to leave the resort if we want to arrive at the parks for rope drop? We will be staying at the All Star Movies resort.

    Hello there, Anastasia! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks so much for taking the time to reach out and allowing us to help you plan your vacation to Walt Disney World Resort!

    As a perpetual morning person, I am constantly waking up early even when on vacation! Though potentially annoying for my travel mates, I find this to be incredibly valuable when visiting Walt Disney World Resort! I have always found that "rope dropping", or arriving at the theme parks as soon as they open, is my personal favorite way of experiencing all they have to offer.

    Disney's All-Star Movies Resort is located in Disney's Animal Kingdom Resort area and is just a short trip to all of the theme parks on the property! Generally, it will take you approximately 30 minutes to travel to any of the theme parks when using Bus Transportation. That being said, I always recommend Guests plan on leaving a bit early if they intend on "rope dropping". 

    Be sure to also download the My Disney Experience app prior to arrival to keep track of the current Bus Wait Times in real-time! This is an incredibly useful feature that is easily accessible right from the comfort of your smartphone!

    Have fun continuing to plan for your upcoming vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you!
