    Hi, we have a breakfast ADR at Be My Guest at 8am. Park opens at 9am. Will bus from Pop Century be available to reach ADR in time? After dining, can we walk around all of MK? Rides begin at 9am we assume so we can line up at our favourite hopefully? Thx

    Hi, Wendy! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks for bringing another great question to us. You will definitely be able to hop aboard a Disney Transportation bus the morning of your breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant. The buses do not begin regular service until around an hour before the theme parks open. However, there are buses available to transport guests to their pre-park-opening Advance Dining Reservations. In my family's experience, we have boarded a bus as early as 6:45 a.m. I will tell you that one harried morning, we did not make it onto a bus until 7:25 a.m., but we still made it to Magic Kingdom Park in time for our 8:00 a.m. breakfast. 

    Many Walt Disney World Resorts have installed digital monitors in the bus queue area so you can keep up with the timing of the next available bus. If you feel rushed or want to arrive at the park in style, you can always call for a Minnie Van through the Lyft rideshare app. The Concierge desk at Disney's Pop Century Resort can help you install this feature on your Lyft app. So, if you find yourself short on time that morning, know there's a really quick way to reach your magical day!

    Once you are done with breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant, you are welcome to head out to the park. However, there will be Cast Members holding guests at certain areas to await the park's opening. I have known Seven Dwarfs Mine Train to open a few minutes early, but this just happens to be one of those pixie-dusted moments. My daughter and I had this happen last year on her birthday, and it sure did make the morning start off practically perfect in every way!

    Thanks again for stopping by and let us now if you think of any other questions as you continue to plan your upcoming adventure! Hope to see ya real soon!
