    Hi
    we are staying at the regal sun resort next year for 9 nights before
    transferring to hard rock hotel for 5 nights. Not sure whether to get a car or not. Has any one stayed at the regal sun- what is their transport like- where does it drop you at the parks?

    have a look at the Downtown Disney Hotels site here - hopefully this will help out.

    I can't answer you specifically on the Regal Sun transport, but I can tell you that the non Disney hotels are nowhere near as regular as the Disney transportation system.

    Do you plan your days and stick to your schedule or do you prefer to go with the flow and wing it? If you like the flexibility and don't know where and exactly what time you are willing to commit to leaving the parks on any given day, or if you plan to park-hop, you may be better with your own car. Having said that, if cost is a factor, remember that the theme parks charge $14 per day for parking so that is an extra expense over and above the car rental charges.

    We only used bus service once at OKW, 20 mins waiting in the August heat was not fun.
    We also found it a nightmare at ASMovies but it was Xmas peak week.

    As for Regal Sun, stayed there for 2 nights in August, it is only a 2-3 min walk across to DTD bus station so you have option of the Hotels transport or Disney transport.

    Personally I would have a car wherever I stayed, we don't like any of the buses but others manage with it no problems.
