    Hi Again, Sherri ! Thx for so much detail....2 more questions - how early will they let us into MK w/ADRs at 8:35am (for pics b4hand of course), & is a taxi a better choice to take us right to the MK entrance that a.m., to avoid the longer bus wait ?

    Hi Jeanette,

    Thank you for the feedback and we enjoy providing you the details normally difficult to find elsewhere! The Cast Members will confirm your Advanced Dining Reservation and allow you entry at their discretion, as you really won't be allowed to wander much other than to take a few photos on Main Street USA. The Cast Members along Main Street will be ushering guests to their respected dining locations but will allow you to stop for a photo or two. 

    As mentioned in our prior exchange, just be sure to stop by your front desk the evening before to confirm early buses will be running on the day of your Advanced Dining Reservation. Because you'll have 2 hours between the first bus at Disney's Art of Animation and your breakfast, I really wouldn't worry much about taking a taxi. 

    If a taxi would make for a more relaxing morning, check out the handy taxi fare estimator on mearstransportation.com. Although the listed fares are meant as a general guideline, you'll see it estimates a trip from Disney's Art of Animation to Magic Kingdom to be $14.00. I typically budget for $20-$25 for typical taxi fare within Disney property, and sometimes the peace of mind of arriving on time is worth the added cost. All you need to do is head to the Valet desk at Disney's Art of Animation and the lovely Cast Members will hail one for you!

    Happy Planning!
