Hey Writerguy, you seem to be 'the man who knows' when it comes to DS hotels transport, so tell me, what in your opinion do you think it will be like this Sept & October with the new 'extra-extra' magic hours each morning? Will someone staying there be able to make it early enough to take advantage or will they miss out despite the EMH entitlements due to impossible bus schedules that cant get you to a DAK, HS or MK at 7 AM?Buses start 1 hour prior to park opening. The B Resort and Spa is on the "A" route, which runs in this order: Hilton Lake Buena Vista --> Holiday Inn Disney Springs --> B Resort and Spa --> DoubleTree Suites. The pick-up time at the B Resort and Spa would be roughly 7:10am.
Unfortunately, there no longer seems to be a set schedule as to which route travels to which parks. (Each bus travels to two theme parks.) If the bus is scheduled to go to Epcot first, your son should arrive roughly around 7:30am. The walk to the entrance takes about 10 minutes. If the bus is scheduled to go to a different park prior to Epcot, he won't arrive until about 7:50am.
Big Caveat: If the only theme park opening at 8am on that day is Epcot, it's almost certain that the bus will travel directly to Epcot after leaving the Disney Springs Hotels. So if all other parks open at 9am, your son should get to Epcot around 7:30am.
