Busch Gardens via shuttle

Hi Liners,

I’m visiting Orlando in the first half of November and hoping to have my first trip to Busch Gardens in ages. Will probably be going on a Sunday as weekdays I will be at Disney/Universal and only have a day there.

I’m thinking of getting the free Mears Shuttle (I’m staying at Cabana Bay), so would appreciate any thoughts from people who have had recent, first-hand experiences with this. It looks like it leaves Seaworld at 9am and gets there… whenever? I guess it’s just over an hour drive and might be making a few stops en-route. Will it be a problem not to arrive at park opening? Do you think I’ll need to splash out on express passes?

Also the return time seems equally as vague - it ‘depends on park closing’ and you have to call a number? I have trust issues with the official website considering it looks like it was designed in the 90s and lists hotels that closed years ago.

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:
