Does the Buzz Lighthear ride move people through quickly? That's the one my boy is most excited about I'm wondering if I should use one on that instead



If you don't mind missing fireworks/parades and the ride goes until closing, The lines for Frozen and 7 Dwarves are shorter and faster at closing cause they don't let Fastpasses in the line then. Also the wait time includes Fast Passes (80% FP, 20% Standby)

We are only going to the one park and don't plan on missing the fireworks.

I did Peter Pan at 10:40
Winnie the Pooh at 11:55
Seven Dwarfs at 1:40 (earliest time they had)

That's a pretty good lineup of fastpasses, Buzz does get a little bit of a line but there are usually fastpasses available for it later in the day so you should be able to make reservations for that as your 4th or 5th pass pretty easily.

I am hoping to get him on Buzz first thing and maybe ride it a couple times if we can maybe later in the day. He has been talking about it non stop. We have to watch the video of that ride every day when I get home.

It sounds like Disney After Hours is coming back for 7 select nights from January 2017 through March 2017. Personally I think this is a great idea. I can't wait to hear why it's a problem.

I wonder how well this did the first go round? I guess well enough to bring it back for a few extra nights. I don't have problem with it in the least, if you wanna pay that for 3 hours then by all means go for it, but I'll save my cash for the Halloween party.

I'd like to buy a vowel!

Because they hurt the feelings of some loud morons who don't understand why a separately ticketed event doesn't automatically extend to them with their single day park ticket.

Some people have this bizarre expectation that they should not have to pay for anything Disney provides to enhance their visit in any way.

You'll really like Shades, I won't stay anywhere else on property (unless I get a ridiculous deal). It's not overly-Disney, moreso an upscale resort with hints of Disney around. Some people don't like this but I've never had a problem. There are bigger and more ornate resorts but Shades has an x-factor that I've not found anywhere else. Also, the busses run regularly and are rarely crowded, since it's a smaller resort. I hope you enjoy your stay!



Thank you for the bus info, only other question I have on that is how close do they drop off to Magic Kingdom and is it easy to get a bus back mid day/end of day or do I need to call to schedule one?


They drop you off at the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC), which is literally right around the corner from the Shades main entrance. From there you can take the monorail or the boat to the entrance of Magic Kingdom. Same deal for Epcot, minus the boat. The busses run very regularly, the longest I waited for a bus was maybe 10 mins? That's to and from the TTC, for everywhere else the busses run on an hourly basis from the hotel to the parks (Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Disney Springs, etc). Busses start running a half hour before the parks open, times for last busses change but usually an hour after park closure.

Alternatively, you could walk 10 minutes down a very nice trail/sidewalk and jump on the monorail at the Polynesian, as that resort is across the street from Shades.
