In my opinion the Sherbeth Rd shortcut is only beneficial to AK or AKL. Here ya go...

1. As you leave WH make a left.

2. Make your 3rd left onto Morgan-Williams

3. Make first left onto Funie Steed Rd.

4. Make first right onto Entry Point Blvd.

5. When you stay on Entry Point BLVD and cross over 192 it turns into Sherbeth Road.

6. Stay on Sherbeth Road about a mile until the traffic light. At the light you will be at Osceola Pkwy.

7. Make left for AKL or make right for AK.

Now when leaving AK their are 2 exits. One is marked I-4/192 on the left. The right exit is not marked but that is the one you want to take to get you back to Sherbeth Road. Make your first left on Sherbeth and you'll be on your way back to WH.

When coming home to WH follow signs for AKL if you are unsure as this brings you to the Sherbeth Road turning

I agree about Sherbeth Rd. Everyone talked about it so much I thought it would be a big time saver but its only a short cut for AK. We used World Drive and always had quick in and outs. I actually didn't like Sherbeth Rd. because it felt like we were "sneaking in." We really like driving through the gates.

When leaving Epcot, the signs for 192 take you way out of the way. Follow the AK/AKL signs and you will be home quicker.

Sherberth Road may not be quicker with the construction through Nov 2. We only went that way once this week; otherwise, the traffic is so light we just take 192 and are there in no time.

No shortcuts, sorry. Just head down 192 East towards I-4 but get off at World Drive.

If we wanted to see the A.M. opening show we would be in the car by 8 and no later than 8:10. Its about a 15 minute drive to the parking lot. Most times we didnt get a tram...we just walked to the TTC. If we didnt see a monorail there than we would head up to the platform since we knew one would be on the way. If one was there we would walk to the boat because we know that by the time we get up the ramp the monorail would be pulling away. So by the time we get the bag check/turnstiles it was usually about 8:45.

Oh yeah, HAVE A GREAT TIME! We cant wait to go back next July.

Thanks for the info on the time, I'm an early riser so is my DGS but my DD is another story and she's the one driving so having a sense idea of the time needed to get there by opening show helps A LOT! I really want my DGS to see this and leaving it up to my DD we'd be there at 10 and miss the whole thing! Thanks again.

No problem.
Im like you...I'm up at 5AM everyday at home and at Disney. Even after late night fireworks and laundry until midnight Unfortunately my family likes to sleep so I have to let them until the very last second. Have a great trip!

Definitely! Its the first time in a very long time that I'm doing offsite and renting a vacation home! I'm so excited. I'll try to post as soon as I can. We should have a lot of down time, which I am truly looking forward to. We all need a rest.
