    Hi again! Our 2nd trip is coming up-yay! Stayed at Pop last time (Sept) but staying at BLT this time (Aug) and I'm worried about transportation (wizard site showed 30-40 min bus rides). How long does it really take to get to each park? We have early ADRs a

    Hi Katherine Ashley! Congratulations on your upcoming second trip to Walt Disney World. Yes, total travel time by bus including the wait can average up to 30 plus minutes, but don't worry Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort offers one of the best locations!

    Magic Kingdom is the closest park to the Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort and you can walk or hop on the monorail to get there. The monorail will also get you to Epcot.

    Don't worry about your advanced dining reservations, Disney's transportation starts running from all resorts approximately 45 minutes before the first available seating in the morning, even factoring in Magic Hours.

    Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort offers an exclusive view of the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular fireworks show above the Magic Kingdom Castle from the "Top of the World Lounge." You’ll have to present your Disney Vacation Club card in order to gain access to the elevator for the lounge.

    Wishing you a magical and memorable Disney vacation.
