Every Tuesday, the Vacation Specialists at Coasters & Castles Travel will share one of their Tips for a great vacation. These have been compiled over many, many trips and will help you have a seamless, wonderful vacation.
From Mary Graham, Vacation Specialist:
With a resort area twice the size of Manhattan, getting around can be a challenge. Some people prefer to have their own vehicle and drive. However, multiple construction projects and traffic can make this a stress-inducing choice for a vacation. Personally, I rely on Disney Transportation: busses, boats, monorail and the new paid service, Minnie Vans.
Guests often ask what time the busses start. If a park opens at 9:00 a.m., but you have a breakfast at 8:05 a.m., how will you get there on time? The good news is that Disney busses start running at 6:30 a.m. for those early meals. If you ask at your Disney Resort hotel, you might be told they start one hour before the park opens, but I have personally been on a bus at 6:40 a.m. for a 8:00 breakfast. So, have no fear, the bus will be there!
