Travel time from Windsor Hills

We are going to be staying at Windsor Hills at the end of next month, and I was wondering just how much travel time to allow in the mornings to make it to rope drop. Any help would be appreciated!

10 min or less to AKL. Maybe 12 to Hollywood Studios. 15 to Epcot. 15 - 20 to MK. That's to the parking gate. Add in parking time, bag checks, and the trip across the lake for MK.

We stayed at Windsor Hills last Oct. and it was less than 15 minutes every single time. We were nervous about driving in a new place, and found it to be very easy.

Have fun.

I was very pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to drive from WH. Faster than using the onside buses. If we were in our car at 8:35 we easily could make opening at Epcot, DHS and AK. I'd say 8:15 to make MK cause you have to take the monorail or boat and crowds are larger.

just to support the above posters we stayed at WH last November for the first time and were surprised at how easy it was to get to all locations. Longest travel time was 17 minutes to MK parking lot. The rest were all 15 minutes or less. enjoy!
