    We have 7:35 am ADRs at the Grand Floridian Cafe & are staying at All-Star Resorts. I realize buses won't run that early to the parks, so if we drove our own car, can we keep it parked at the Grand Floridian for the day while in the parks?

    Hello, Emily!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am so excited to read that you are taking advantage of some great Walt Disney World dining experiences! You will not be let down.  Just make sure to have your camera ready as you will want to capture these MAGICAL moments. 

    Unfortunately, you are only allowed to park at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa for the duration of your dining experience.  You will need to remove your car after dining. The good news is that the Disney Transportation System (buses) begin running between 6:30-6:45 a.m. from your resort's bus stop.  Simply look for a bus whose marquee may read one of the following:  "Character Dining", "Dining" or "Special Event."  Once onboard, let your driver know where you need to go and you will be on your way.  Upon check-in, ask your Cast Member about early dining reservations. They may be able to offer some advice, too.

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  Looking for some MAGICAL character dining experiences?  I am sure you'll find some great restaurants that feature some of your favorites.  Check it out today!

    Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"
