    Wondering if i should rent a car for entire stay or use the buses, mom has pain in her legs so standing for a bus and on the bus may be a problem. How are the buses early Nov? crowded? also have a 3 yr old boy who gets cranky when tired!

    Hi Kiara!

    This is a great question.  I would recommend getting a car.  It is very easy to drive around Walt Disney World and it is much faster getting around with your own car, especially if you will be visiting other resort hotels (for dinner for example).  The only exception is the Magic Kingdom as it is faster to take Disney transportation to the Magic Kingdom than to drive; that is because if you drive you actually park at the Transportation and Ticket Center and then take a monorail or ferry boat to the Magic Kingdom. 

    The buses can be very crowded in the morning when the parks first open and at the end of the day.  They can be very crowded right after the fireworks or nighttime spectacular and at park closing.  During the middle of the day they are usually not that crowded.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
