    I have a 7:55 am ADR at the Wave before my MK day. If I use a ride share to get there from CSR, how early can I arrive? Would love to spend some time looking around before my reservation!

    Hi Sarah,

    Starting your magical day at The Wave... of American Flavors sounds like a wonderful idea! Mmm...just thinking about Wave Signature Sweet Potato Pancakes has my tumbly all rumbly like Winnie the Pooh's!

    I'm happy to let you know that you should have no trouble accessing the Resort hotel early if you'd like to have some time to explore before your breakfast. I know you're using a ride share service, but Guests are entitled to several hours of complimentary parking when they're visiting a Resort hotel for a dining reservation, so I would simply tell the Cast Member at the gate if they ask that you have a dining reservation at 7:55 AM, but wanted to explore a little beforehand. Disney's Contemporary Resort is one of the original Resort hotels at Walt Disney World Resort and is an iconic sight to see. If you're interested in some of the history behind the Resort hotel, this Disney Parks Blog article is an old, but fun one. While you're there, you simply must take some time to take in the incredible Mary Blair mural near the entrance to Chef Mickey's, and I'd also encourage you to step out on the Level 4 observation deck and Skyway Bridge to check out some pretty sweet views of Magic Kingdom Park. A leisurely morning stroll around the pool, beach, and dock would also be a lovely way to start your day! After you've enjoyed your breakfast, you'll be just a short walk or monorail ride away from all of the magic and fun of Magic Kingdom Park. Sounds like a day that's practically perfect in every way to me!

    Thanks so much for stopping by planDisney again, Sarah, and please feel free to keep your great questions coming. I hope you have a truly magical...and delicious...vacation!
