You can buy your park pass here, but if you're arriving early it won't save much time. There is a great movie, a food court, and a gift shop.

Your best bet is to get your Canyon park pass from there then ask where to go for the bus. Even if you don't get your pass from there, ask at the park desk inside. They were very helpful.
