    Hi! We have BOG breakfast reservations at 8:15 am on June 30, 2016. We are staying at All Star Sports. How early will the buses run to Magic Kingdom? And also will we be done in time to go get in line for Mine Train before the park opens? Thanks!!

    Hey, Mickey!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. "Ma chere Mademoiselle, it is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that we welcome you" to Be Our Guest Restaurant.

    Be Our Guest Restaurant in Fantasyland is tres bien. The meal is worth every bite. Our table of four took Lumiere’s advice and split the Croissant Doughnut. Yes, a fried doughnut covered in a banana-caramel sauce; taste buds meet perfection.

    You have plenty of time. Buses begin running at least one hour prior to theme park opening but for early dining reservations, they start even earlier. For example, on a 9:00 a.m. opening expect buses around 7:30 a.m. or earlier. Please check with the concierge at your Resort hotel for definitive times the night before your reservation.

    Budget about 60 minutes to get from your hotel room door at Disney's All-Star Sports Resort to the entrance of the Beast's castle.

    When you arrive at Magic Kingdom Park before the theme park officially opens, look for Cast Members on the left side of the main gate with signs for “early dining reservations and tours." You will need to check in with them. They will look for your name on a list before allowing you inside the park. I suggest you print off a copy or take a screen shot of your reservation and carry it with you in case your name is not on the list.

    Disney Dad Tip: Once inside Magic Kingdom Park, you will be able to have a more private view of the Main Street, U.S.A., Cinderella Castle and even New Fantasyland. Be sure to take lots of pictures.

    Bon appetite!

    Mickey, enjoy making and eating many Magical Memories!
