    We have 4 ADR's for character breakfasts: CRT (8AM), H&V (8AM). TH (8AM), Chef Mickeys (7AM). Does the bus system work that early? Mostly worried about Chef Mickey's which is a resort to resort ride in which we would have to leave around 6am or earlie

    Hi Ana!

    Don't worry! You'll be able to get to all your wonderfully Magical Character Meals each morning!

    Buses begin operating as early as 6:30am specifically to get Guests like you from your resorts to early, Character Breakfast Reservations in the parks and even at resort hotel locations.

    Be sure to be out at the Bus Depot for your resort right at 6:30am (or even a bit before) on the day of your Chef Mickeys reservation in particular. There is often a Cast Member outside with a clipboard and CB radio specifically to help route the proper buses to pick up guests and get them headed in the right direction quickly! On the days of your other 8am breakfast reservations in the parks, you should plan to be out at the bus area by 7:00/7:15am.

    If there is no Cast Member outside at the depot area and you've waited more than 20 minutes, you can also call the Walt Disney World Transportation Bus Operation Center directly at 407-824-7092, or have a Cast Member at your resort's Concierge or Front Desk make the call for you. Let them know that you require a bus for character dining and have been waiting and they'll route a bus in your direction right away.

    Wishing you a simply Magical time on your Walt Disney World vacation Ana.
    Enjoy your Character Breakfasts!
