    HI! We are arriving in 12 days, yay, cant wait! ? is, have 7:10AM ADR at Chef Mickeys. WHat is best way of getting there from CSR? Heard it could be an issue! & should i keep ADR at Mama melroses or try and eat at Big River Grill & Brewery?

    HI Nicki! You must be so excited that your Disney World vacation is almost here! Breakfast at Chef Mickey's is always such a fun way to start your day! From most resorts, including the Coronado Springs, you can reach Chef Mickey's by taking a bus to the Magic Kingdom and then just walking or taking the monorail over to the Contemporary Resort, where Chef Mickey's is located. I love those 7 a.m. breakfast reservations at Chef Mickey's because they allow you to have a fun character meal and still hit the early Extra Magic Hours in the parks. However, I recommend that you check with your resort Guest Services the night before to confirm the time that the buses will start running to the Magic Kingdom in the morning since your reservation is so early. Special character breakfast buses often transport guests from the resorts to the early character meals, and I've never had a problem catching a Disney bus to early breakfast reservations, but it's always good to confirm bus availability the night before with your resort when you have a super-early reservation. (In a pinch, taxis are always available too.)

    As to your other question, I have dined at both Mama Melrose's and Big River Grille on multiple occasions, and I personally prefer the food at Mama Melrose's.  If you like Italian food, I think you'll enjoy Mama Melrose's too, and I wouldn't cancel the reservation in favor of Big River Grille.

    Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We're happy to help!
