    Hello, Nicole!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    Happy New Year!  You are being very smart about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.  Many times folks seem to go, go, go and then wonder why their children are cranky and unable to make it to park closing hours.  They're simply exhausted!  My three boys range between the ages of 12 and 18 and a two hour nap is still a requirement.  The way I see it...joy all around!  

    Yes, buses do run every 20 minutes.  You want to allow for a 15 to 20 minute drive (including bus stops at your resort).  So you are looking at approximately 40 to 45 minutes one way.  The same amount of time should be applied for your trip back to the parks.  You may get lucky and have the bus sitting at the bus stop when you arrive which will knock off 20 minutes.  I love it when this happens!  

    ~Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"~
