    Hi back again! We managed to score a breakfast ADR to Be Our Guest for 8am on a day the park is currently scheduled to open at 9am. My question is how early do the buses run would we be able to use them or would have to book a rideshare that morning?

    Bonjour, Sienna! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks so much for stopping by with your question! Be Our Guest Restaurant is such a delicious dining option, especially in the morning. If you see an open table in the mysterious West Wing dining room, I highly recommend sitting there as you enjoy your coffee and pastries!

    Complimentary Disney transportation is offered to guests from their Disney Resort Hotel, usually beginning 45 minutes to an hour before each park opens. However, they certainly understand that many guests will need transportation earlier than this for pre-park opening reservations. In my experience, that Magic Kingdom Park bus is the earliest of the day, usually by 7:00 a.m. I even saw it just a couple of weeks ago as early as 6:30 a.m.! The best way to keep track of the buses while at your resort is to pull up your Disney Resort Hotel information within the My Disney Experience mobile app. You will see a button to display bus information. Just click it and you will see the expected arrival time for the next bus to all theme parks, water parks, and Disney Springs. How cool is that? 

    Sienna, I have frequently used standard rideshare services while at Walt Disney World Resort and so appreciate how quickly they can get me to a park! However, I do want to discourage you from using one the morning of this reservation for one main reason. Rideshare services must drop off guests traveling to Magic Kingdom Park at the Magic Kingdom parking lot. You will go through security there before boarding either the Disney Monorail or water ferry to cross Seven Seas Lagoon. This will greatly delay your arrival. However, the Minnie Van Service, Disney's own rideshare service, is able to drop off guests at the bus circles, putting you right at the park's entrance. If you do decide to use rideshare that morning, definitely go with the adorable polka-dotted Minnie Vans!

    Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions.
