    We will be traveling 12/13-12/18 with myself, DH, DS 4, and DS 9mo. We will have a car and staying at the CBR also have PH passes. My question is should we drive to the parks or use Disney transportation? Thanks for all of yoor help!

    Hi, Elizabeth!  The biggest advantage to the Walt Disney World transportation is that it's air conditioned!  Once you leave the parks, if it's been hot out, you'll find your personal car can be unbearable for the first few minutes.  When you hop into one of the buses at Walt Disney World, it's already cool and comfortable, which you sometimes need after a long day of walking.

    I will say, however, that I almost always have taken my own car.  It's only now that I don't have to take a stroller and baby supplies that the buses seem more of an option to me.  I never wanted to have to struggle with the stroller, the diaper bag, any bags with souvenirs in them - it always seemed a lot to handle getting on and off the bus.

    If you don't mind the hot car, I would say it's easier to use the car with a lot of gear.  But the buses come often, so it's rare that you would have to wait longer than a few minutes, and with your husband there to help, you can grab the baby while he grabs the gear.

    I hope that helps!  It's kind of one of those things that really is up to you and what your preferences are.

    Have a terrific time!
