    Visiting end Mar/first wk Apr. Staying Pop C. Want to arrive each park hr before EMH rope drop each morning. Does bus from Pop run early enough to get us there hr before EMH rope drop or rent car? Time needed/best way to travel from MK to La Nouba 9p show


    The general buses start running to the Parks about an hour prior to Park opening.  So if a Park has morning Extra Magic Hours, say starting at 8:00 a.m., then the buses to that Park will start running by 7:00 a.m., so there is no need to rent a car just to get to the Park prior to opening. 

    At present, there is no direct bus from the Parks to Downtown Disney and vice versa.  To get from a Park to Downtown Disney, where La Nouba shows, you would have to transfer at a Resort.  This is very simple from the Magic Kingdom, where you can take a short walk (about 8 minutes) to the Contemporary Resort to catch a direct bus to Downtown Disney.  I would budget at least an hour to stroll to the Contemporary, wait for a bus, ride to Downtown Disney, and comfortably get to La Nouba (though it may not take that long). 

    Enjoy your vacation.
