If you are familiar with the Walt Disney World Resort area, this might seem like a fairly straightforward question. Just the distance of your resort or park location to Disney Springs would be most people’s answer. However, when addressing how much time guests should be allowing to travel to Disney Springs, Disney has recently started offering some more cautious advice.

In a banner that now appears on, the theme park giant suggests that you arrive at least 60 minutes prior to any reservations, shows, or scheduled events, referencing capacity and access delays as potential problems.

If delays do occur, the additional time will provide you with a less stressful buffer between your time crunch and the upcoming activity, making it easier for you to get where you need to go. Should everything go to plan, you will be arriving early for your destination. Lucky for us, Disney guests are spoiled for choice when it comes to entertainment in Disney Springs. From live performances to people-watching, window shopping to exploring, Disney Springs can easily hold your attention for any leftover period of time.
