    how to get from art of animation to chef mickeys with a 7:50 reservation. No rental car

    Hi there, Trisha!  You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney!

    I'm so excited to hear that you'll be having breakfast at Chef Mickey's during your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort!  My husband and I took our kids to Chef Mickey's on their first Walt Disney World Resort trip.  The yummy food and lively atmosphere quickly made visiting this restaurant one of our family vacation traditions.  There is just something so magical about eating Mickey waffles as you watch the monorail travel right through the lobby of Disney's Contemporary Resort!  So let's chat about traveling from Disney's Art of Animation Resort to Chef Mickey's.

    Guests who do not have access to their own personal vehicle or a rental car while staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, have several complimentary options for traveling throughout the resort.  If your dining reservation was a bit later in the morning, you could hop on a bus headed from your resort hotel to Magic Kingdom Park.  From Magic Kingdom Park, Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort is just a quick walk or monorail ride away.  Resort transportation starts running each morning 45 minutes prior to the theme park opening time.  You can check the operating hours for Magic Kingdom Park for the day of your Chef Mickey's reservation, but it's likely that the bus won't be running early enough to be an option for you.  

    When I need to get from my resort hotel to an early morning dining reservation, I typically use a ride-share service.  I've found this to be a quick and easy way to arrive on time for my breakfast.  In addition to traditional ride-share services, you also have the option to utilize the Disney Minnie Van Service.  You can request and pay for this special transportation service through your Lyft app, and a friendly Cast Member will arrive to transport you anywhere on Walt Disney World Resort property.  This is a great option for families with young children since the Minnie Vans come equipped with car seats.  Plus, those red and white polka-dot vehicles are just plain adorable!

    If we can help you with any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.  My fellow panelists and I are all ears!  Enjoy your breakfast at Chef Mickey's and give Mickey a big hug for me!

    See ya real soon!
