Default Disney Springs bus question

I have an upcoming trip and will be doing the Cake Decorating Class at Amorette's. The class starts at 9 AM. What time to the buses start running to Disney Springs from the resorts? Or will it be better to get a Minnie Van or Uber?

Sadly, I have no idea since I am not usually up by then.

Cake decorating class sounds like a lot of fun. I think that I will look into it.

Cake seems like a good reward for getting up in the middle of the night to take my daughter to EEMH at HS.

I would call the resort front desk for the info that you need.

From Disney transportation site:

Getting to Disney Springs

Bus service from Disney Resort hotels operates from 45 minutes before opening until 1:00 AM.
Return service to Disney Resort hotels ends at 2:00 AM.
One-way bus service from the 4 Disney theme parks operates daily from 4:00 PM until 11:00 PM or 2 hours after theme parks close, whichever is earlier.

Me, Id just Uber.

Can’t answer your question but my parents did the cake decorating a few years ago and LOVED it. They also shared the cake with us, which was delicious! HAVE FUN!!

Uber/Lyft will be your best bet. However, let the front desk know your need a couple of days early. Occasionally, bell services has taken us to a park for an early tour meet-up just for the price of a tip. (The time the driver is driving you is the time the driver is not handling luggage and getting tips for it!)

It's not guaranteed and depends on how busy bell services is, but it doesn't hurt to ask "I have to bet at DS in time for a class. Is there a way to get there without paying for a cab?"

Indeed, it would be cool if you gave us a review of the experience! Lot's of fun little things like this are starting to pop up.

Uber would be the most reliable. Also my experience is mainly limited to BWV but the DS service is super slow from there because they often share with several other resorts.
