    Hello again! We are staying at AoA. Made reservations for ChefMickey at 7h05am. Can we get there that early by Disney transportation? what time should we leave? Also, lots of buzz about MyDisneyExperience. Can I use this if my trip is onFeb 24? If so, how?

    Hi Caroline!

    You're going to love the Art of Animation Resort! This resort is brand new and beautifully themed! I was there just a few months ago and the resort is outstanding. Don't miss the great options in the food court, including the Greek Yogurt Station!

    The buses begin one hour prior to park opening. Since your reservation is very early at 7:05 a.m. and is at a resort, rather than a park, I recommend that you either drive yourself or request a taxi for your reservation. The buses don't run from resort to resort, so you would need to take a bus to the Magic Kingdom park and then take the monorail to The Contemporary. I always recommend leaving at least an hour to 45 minutes prior to your reservation to ensure you arrive in time, therefore you would need to leave around 6:00 a.m. You can ask Guest Relations at your resort when you check in if a bus will be at Art of Animation that early on the day of your reservation. They may be able to arrange this for you, however I would encourage you to take a taxi to The Contemporary and then enjoy the monorail and bus services from The Contemporary to the parks and back to your resort after your reservation.

    Yes, you can enjoy My Disney Experience by purchasing it from the App store for your smart phone. It is available for download now.
