    Hello! 2 weeks from our WDW Trip! How reliable are the hotel shuttles on Magic Morning days? Will we get there in time for MM gate open or are shuttle lines so long that we should plan alternatively? Specifically Carribian Beach to Hollywood Studios.

    Hi Robert! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Two weeks ... that's all that stands between you and your vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort. How exciting is that? I bet you are thrilled!

    I have always been very impressed with the reliability and convenience of Walt Disney World complimentary transportation and I think you will be, too. Even during early morning Extra Magic Hours, we have found buses running extra early to get us there on time.

    I suggest getting to the bus stop at least 30 minutes earlier than the scheduled Extra Magic Hours. For example, if Extra Magic Hours begin at 7:00 a.m., I would arrive at the bus stop by 6:30 a.m. (at the latest!) to try and board the earliest bus possible. A feature that I find super helpful is the monitor at the bus stop that lists the approximate time of arrival for the next bus to each of the theme parks. Even better is that one of that newest features on the My Disney Experience mobile app includes listing approximate bus arrival times. When I was there one month ago, the feature was so new that it didn't always work properly, so I still found the bus stop monitors to be more accurate, but I have heard from friends that the mobile app times are working better now!

    I hope this helps with your planning, Robert! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
