    Hello! I will be traveling to Disney during Thanksgiving 2013 staying at the All Star Movie Resort. I am worried about how long it will take to get to the parks. Is it true they share buses with the other 2 resorts? What can I do to minimize wait times?

    Hi Jose!

         Typically, the All Star Value Resorts will share buses during slower time of the day (like the middle of the day). Usually at Park opening or closing times each All Star Value Resort will have their own buses. If the the All Star Resorts are sharing a bus, normally the pick up and drop off order is: All Star Sports Resort, then All Star Music Resort, and then finally All Star Movies Resort. It is quite possible that during Thanksgiving, which is typically a busy time in Walt Disney World, that Disney may make the move to send buses to each individual All Star Value Resort depending on the demand for that particular day.  To minimize wait times for buses, I would recommend going to the parks early in the morning (try to be on the first or second buses that leaves the All Star Movies Resort for whatever park that you are going to on that particular day).  The buses usually begin transporting Guests to a park an hour before that particular park is scheduled to open on that day.

    I hope that your next Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
