    I will be traveling with my family March 21-26, staying at Port Orleans. On the Extra Magic Hours for the morning, when should you leave your resort, and plan to arrive at the parks?

    Hello Cathy!  Oh, March will be around before you know it and the fun will have begun.  This is a fantastic question and one that I am sure that many people have.  Taking advantage of the Extra Magic Hours is a great way to get the most out of your day at the parks.  Buses will start running one hour prior to the park opening.  For example, if the Extra Magic Hour is at 8:00 a.m., buses will be in full force at 7:00 a.m.   Buses run every 15 to 20 minutes and I have found that you can find yourself at a park within 10 minutes.  The longest I have ever found my self on a bus is probably around 12 minutes.  If I was planning for an 8:00 a.m. opening, I would find myself at the bus stop at 7:15.

    I hope this helps with some of your planning.  Have a wonderful trip!  I know new and exciting memories are just waiting for you and your family.  May tons of Pixie Dust come your way!
