    What do you recommend is a good timeto head to the busses in the mourning to get to each parkby rope drop ceremony staying at apartment LOL mermaid. Thanks again.

    Hi Jessica! You are very ambitious to get to each park for their rope drops but it is a great way to get a head start on all the popular attractions without relying completely on Fast Passes.

    Generally each park will let guests in about 15 minutes before the posted opening time but this can change if the crowds are thick at the turnstiles. From there you will go only so far and will still need to wait for the official opening. You can get great hints about each park's rope drop at These hints come from past guests and their experiences so they are a good read!

    If you wish to be at the parks early enough I suggest you get to the bus stop at your resort for the first park buses each day. Transportation begins officially an hour before opening but when you check into your resort check with them if they know if the buses have been coming any earlier.
