    How much time does purchasing the Express Transportation option save you if you're park hopping? Is it worth it in your opinion?

    Dear Jessica,

    Thank you for reaching out to us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about one of my favorite new options at the Walt Disney World Resort, Express Transportation!

    In my opinion, this is a great value for Park Hoppers, and will save you a ton of time! I recommend arriving at the first park of the day and heading over to the Express Transportation bus stop to take a picture of the schedule of the buses for the day. You can keep that photo in your phone and then you will know exactly when to return to the stop in order to go to your next park. 

    When you are ready, head back over to that stop and check in with a Cast Member. They will scan your MagicBand and will tell you where to wait. Once the bus arrives, you are personally escorted to the stop and the bus takes you on a backstage route to your destination! Of course I can't guarantee, but I would estimate that you will save at least 30-45 minutes per time you change parks. You save the walk to the bus, and then you save all of that time going back through security.

    Honestly, I highly recommend this reasonably priced choice. Hope that you have a magical time at the Walt Disney World Resort!
