Hyatt MCO and DCL Tranfer Bus

We are going to be flying in to MCO to stay at the Hyatt before we transfer to DCL. What time should we be down there to catch the first bus? Thanks!

The check in desk for DCL transportation opens at 9:00. Well, really they tend to open a little earlier, like 8:50 or so. By that time there are people already waiting.

We just did this and loved the convenience. We were down there by 8:30 and there was already a line, but we were just barely on the first bus because a very large party were the ones there before us. Have Fun!

A question, then, about arriving at Port on DCL transfer from the Hyatt. It sounds like the first bus gets there around 10 or so? If your PAT is later, what happens, then? Where do you wait? How long a wait is it? Thanks! Our plan is to do this next November.

If taking DCL Transport PAT is moot. You will get boarding number 2 or 3!
I always try to get earliest PAT just in case

I stay at the Hampton Inn MCO Gateway (cheaper than the Hyatt) and take their shuttle to MCO around 8 or 8:15. Love getting on that first bus!! I can still check my bags there so I've just got a purse and backpack to deal with. Love it!!
