    Just days to go! Getting so excited!

    We're staying off-site at Orlando Vista Hotel. Their site says they have "sheduled shuttles" to all the parks, but I can't find any more information.

    Are the shuttles free? How often do they run? Where can I find more info?

    Frustrating.

    Best bet is to call the hotel direct and find out. Some hotels run free shuttles and some have a fee. Most you'll need to book the night before or similar. Be aware though that sometimes a hotel's last shuttle will leave the park before closing time so if you want to stay till the end you'll need to make other arrangements.

    Totally agree with what the others have said, do you have a full plan of what you're going to do??? We need to know!!! :lol:

    Do make sure on the shuttles though. Every evening in EPCOT you can see people in the car park waiting for shuttles which have already been and gone before park closing time. Really important to get those details worked out well

    Be certain to check if the fee is PER PERSON or for the entire group. It's most likely per person. Depending upon how many in your group, and how far you need to travel, it may be less expensive to hire a cab. :yes:

    Also, if the shuttle is not listed as Courtesy Shuttle or Free Shuttle, I'd be tempted to think there was a fee for it, so do be sure to double check. :yes:

    Thanks! I'll have to find some time to call them.

    As far as plans, Eeney and Meaney are only 2 and 4 yrs so we're only doing Magic Kingdom on Friday and Saturday, and not staying until closing either. We may go for a little bit Sunday morning until my Mom is done with the Marathon, but then we've got to head home. :(

    Started packing this morning for the kids! Woohoo!
