Buses start at 6:30 every morning.

Driving vs Bus

Is it just as easy to drive from the Fort to the Poly for dinner? Looks like that would be quicker than waiting on buses before and after, especially if we are very late leaving the Poly.

Actually, we thought we would just drive everywhere from the Fort, except the boat to MK.

Has anyone experienced driving vs. buses?

We're staying at Coronado Springs and have 7:45 breakfast reservations at Ohana's. What time should we get the bus from our resort to MK if we're going to take the monorail from there to Poly?

Thanks!!

OK my issue is I'm trying to figure out which will be easier here is the info....

I will be in HS on Monday Nov 5th we have lunch reservations at 1105 so that will be way over by the time I have to g.o but we have a reservation at 340 at BBB in DTD. would it be faster and easier to take a bus or just drive my own car?? DH is going to stay behind and have fun at the park so me and DD can have some mommy daughter time and go get all dressed up so in your opinion which would be the best and if its the bus how long does it take to get from HS to DTD and back???

Drive your car. There is no direct bus service between DTD and any of the parks.

We'll be staying at Pop without a car in a few weeks and my boys really want to watch football on Sunday at the ESPN sports complex grill. Is there a bus that can take us therefrom Pop? if not, is there a good way to get there? Do I need to take a cab? Thanks!

There may be a bus; buses run between Pop & ESPN Wide World of Sports, but only when some event is happening at the sports complex. Bus drivers get the operating schedule for the week on Sunday, so they won't be able to tell you whether the bus will be running until that day.

When the bus is running, it runs every half hour from EWWS, stopping at Pop about 5 minutes after the hour & half-hour. The bus stops at CBR before returning to EWWS.

You can also take a taxi. The 2 are only a couple of miles apart, so the taxi fare will likely be under $10. You may have to call for a taxi to get back from EWWS (407-422-2222), or the restaurant staff might call for you.

The Grill itself is also open only when events are scheduled at the complex. Currently, the hours are posted thru the 1st 3 weeks of October, and the Grill is closed both Sundays. The concierge desk at Pop can probably tell you whether the Grill will be open after you arrive, or you could try calling 407-WDW-DINE when it gets closer to your visit.

Were you maybe thinking of ESPN Club, at the Boardwalk? I don't know whether the ESPN Club is suitable for kids, and I don't know whether the Grill shows football games in the dining area. You might ask those questions on the dining board.

BB will be open in November. This winter's refurbishment is scheduled for January thru mid-March.

TL will be closed for refurbishment in November.

But to answer the original question, buses run between Epcot & BB, even when BB is closed. Golfers can catch a bus from their resort to Epcot, and catch the bus to BB from there. (Things are more difficult for guests of the Epcot resorts.)

To get from DHS to DTD would we walk over to Boardwalk then take the bus to DTD? Is that the bus ride that takes forever? We were trying to avoid having to take a cab but do you think in this case it's the only way to go? If so, which cab service, Mears?
