    Hello, When booking a reservation for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Magic Kingdom for early morning 7am. Can we access the park, before the park opens 9am? Also do the busses run before 7am from the resorts to the parks?

    Hi, Shannon!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am so excited to hEAR that you are thinking about booking an appointment for your little princess or knight to experience a royal makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique!  Some of my most treasured Walt Disney World Resort memories are of visiting Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique with my daughter when she was younger.  There is nothing quite like seeing the look on your little one's face when they catch that first glimpse of their regal transformation in the mirror.

    Guests who have dining reservations or Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique appointments prior to Magic Kingdom Park's opening will be admitted to the park early enough to make it to their reservation.  I like to arrive at the park gates at least 30 minutes before my reservation to allow plenty of time to go through security and make my way into the park.  Just look for a sign showing guests with reservations where to enter.  If you're not sure where to go, there will be plenty of Cast Members nearby who you can ask for directions.  A Cast Member will likely need to scan your MagicBand or ask for your name in order to verify that you have a pre-park opening reservation.  Once your appointment is verified, you'll be on your way into Magic Kingdom Park quicker than you can say, "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo!"  On your way into the park, be sure to snap some pictures in front of Cinderella Castle without crowds in the background.  In my opinion, this is one of the best perks of a pre-park opening reservation!

    Typically, bus transportation from Walt Disney World Resort Hotels to the theme parks begins running 45 minutes prior to park opening.  If you need to travel to the parks before the buses start running, Disney Minnie Van Service is a great option.  You can request and pay for a Minnie Van using the Lyft app on your phone.  Each Minnie Van can transport up to six guests and comes equipped with two child seats if needed.  Disney Minnie Van Service currently begins operating at 6:30 a.m. each day, so it's the perfect solution for traveling to those early morning reservations.  Plus, those red and white polka dot cars are adorable!

    Wishing you a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
