    What time does transportation start for parks with extra magic hours?

    Hi there, Jennifer!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so glad you stopped by with your question about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation.  With it fast approaching, I know you want to make sure you have everything planned out and visiting theme parks with Extra Magic Hours is a great idea!  My family which is full of early risers ALWAYS takes advantage of visiting the theme parks ahead of their official opening time!

    The complimentary transportation to the theme parks from Walt Disney World Resort hotels does take into account the Extra Magic Hours and will begin running at least 45 minutes prior to that extra magical hour so you can fully take advantage of the extra time in the theme park!  Keep in mind that transportation will only begin early for the theme park with the Extra Magic hours.  Transportation to the other theme parks with regular opening hours will begin one hour prior to that theme park opening.

    Be certain you have the My Disney Experience Mobile app downloaded prior to your visit so you will have easy access to wait times, theme park maps and my favorite feature – mobile food ordering which is always so helpful when I have hungry little ones in tow!  I love being able to place my order ahead of time and then it is ready by the time we get there to pick it up!

    Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit again if you have additional planning questions!
