    Have ADR for Chef Mickeys at 7:45 am. I know transportation runs for early ADR's but do you go to the regular bus stop or do you stop by front desk to make arrangements? Want to make sure longs lines for bus stop do not hinder arrival time for ADR.

    Hi Laura!

    You didn't say which resort you are at, but since you mentioned a bus, I'm assuming you're not at a monorail resort.  The best way to get to Chef Mickey's in the Contemporary Resort is to take a bust to the Magic Kingdom.  You could have two choices depending on the time of year you go:  either board a Magic Kingdom bus or ask the bus driver of any bus saying "Character Dining" if he or she is headed to the Magic Kingdom.  Basically, you want to get on the first bus headed to the Magic Kingdom.

    The Magic Kingdom's bus stop is outside the Magic Kingdom so you don't need a park ticket.  Once you get there, you can walk to the Contemporary in about 5 minutes.  An alternative is to walk to the Magic Kingdom Monorail Station and catch a resort monorail to the Contemporary, but it will take a lot longer than it would if you walked.

    Another option is to simply take a taxi from your hotel straight to the Contemporary.  It's the easiest method of all.

    Have a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
