    Me again:)If we make bkfast places like chef mickey and the crystal palace if we won't have a vehicle-using onsite transportation (when does park transport start) if we aren't staying at hotel where restaur. is how far ahead doweleave our hotel?

    Hi Angela,

    Regular onsite transportation to the parks begins one-hour prior to park opening. However, there is also transportation available for guests with early morning breakfast reservations. These buses often begin an hour prior to the first scheduled seating. You'll want to check with Bell Services at your resort to see what time you can expect a bus to come (let them know that you have an early reservation).

    Since Disney buses do not travel directly from resort to resort, we will often hop in a cab with reservations that early in the morning. Cabs are less than $20 to anywhere on Disney property and are much more convenient when traveling from resort to resort. This would be the easiest option when dining at Chef Mickey's.

    If you choose Crystal Palace instead, you'll want to give yourself about an hour from when you leave your resort to when you want to arrive at the Magic Kingdom (or any theme park). This is because buses come approximately every hour and you never know if you have just missed a bus (so you'll be waiting a while) or if one is coming around the bend (so you'll be ahead of schedule).

    Hope this helps and please let me know if I can assist you further,
