    Is there a time table for traveling on WDW transporation between resorts. I want to know how early we need to leave our hotel or wherever we are to make our table reservations for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    Hi Hope,

    If you are dining in one of the parks, you should plan on at least an hour from your Resort to the Park. This takes into account that the buses come approximately every 20 minutes and you never know if you just missed one, or if one is coming around the bend. Additionally, you need to plan to arrive at the host / hostess stand 15 minutes prior to your dining reservation.

    The Disney buses don't travel directly from Resort to Resort. So for these reservations, you'll need more time. Most likely if you are dining in a Resort for dinner, you will have spent the day in a Park. If that's the case, just exit the Park and hop on a bus bound for whichever Resort you are dining in. However, for breakfast in a different Resort than the one you are staying in, it is best to take a cab. If you prefer to use the Disney buses, the route that I would recommend varies depending on where you are starting and where you're eating. If you want to send me a follow-up question with any specific meals that you are concerned about, I'd be happy to help you figure out the best route / time frame.

    Have a wonderful vacation,
