    We have ADR for 8:15am at Crystal Palace, but MK doesn't open until 9am that day. With the buses running only a hour before the parks open, will we still be able to ride them from Pop Century to our ADR? Thanks so much!

    Hi Micki,

    There's no need to worry!

    Officially, Disney's complimentary transportation is available one hour prior to Disney Theme Park opening time and up to one hour after Disney Theme Park closing time. 

    That said, the folks at Disney are aware that many Guests staying on-site will have made early morning breakfast reservations and the Disney buses should be up and running in plenty of time to get you there.

    If you have any concerns at all, speak to a Cast Member at Guest Services when you arrive at your Resort hotel who will be able to confirm that Disney buses will be operating early enough.

    In your case, I would recommend that you are at the Bus Stop at your Resort hotel for 7.15am. From there, you will need to catch the bus to the Magic Kingdom which should take approximately 20 minutes. When you arrive at the Magic Kingdom, you will see a Cast Member at one of the turnstiles with a sign for breakfast reservations. Proceed to that turnstile and give the Cast Member your Surname and Reservation Number. Once they have verified that you do have a reservation, they will allow you to enter the park.

    Make sure that you have your camera at the ready as this is a fantastic opportunity to get some lovely photographs of your family on Main Street and in front of Cinderella's Castle before the park opens and most importantly without anyone else in the picture.

    Wishing your family a magical trip filled with memories which will last a lifetime!
