    I have a tour booked that leaves from the main entrance of Epcot at 9am. I am staying at BoardWalk Inn and the park doesn’t open until 9am. How should I get from the resort to the main entrance of Epcot before the park opens?

    Greetings, Jonathan! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Let's get you ready for your magical Disney day!

    A tour is such an amazing way to get to know the Walt Disney World Resort even better! I took the Backstage Magic Tour with some friends from the Disney Parks Moms Panel last year, and it was incredible. We got to see so many things that you just don't experience as a regular Guest. My favorite part was getting to go inside The American Adventure and see how they make Mark Twain and Ben Franklin come to life!

    Jonathan, you shouldn't have any trouble making your tour check-in. Disney bus transportation begins serving the Theme Parks about 45 minutes before they open, and the trip from Disney's BoardWalk Inn to Epcot is a short one. I'd plan to be at the bus stop as early as you can and try to get on one of the first buses out, just to be safe. If you still have concerns, you can visit the concierge desk at your Resort hotel and ask what time the Epcot buses will start running. I'm sure they can put your mind at ease.

    And don't forget, you can check bus arrival times in real time right on your My Disney Experience app! Just find your Resort hotel reservation on the front page, then click on "See Bus Times." You'll be able to see exactly when the Epcot bus will be at your Resort hotel!

    I hope this helps you plan a magical stay at the Walt Disney World Resort, Jonathan. Have a great time on your tour, and please come see us again if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
