    I have a breakfast at 8:10 at Hollywood and Vine. We are staying at Coronado. But, the buses don't start until 8, one hour before the park opens at 9. How are we supposed to get to our meet & greet at Hollywood and Vine?

    Hi Meghan! My family loves to start their morning off with a great character dining experience. I try to make an Advanced Dining Reservation for a pre-park opening breakfast at least once during our vacation. While our daughters love the character interactions during the meal, I love having the chance to get a nice family picture while the Park is empty – always makes for a practically perfect holiday card!

    The buses to the theme parks do not regularly begin operating until an hour before park opening, but Disney does understand that many Guests require transportation earlier than this. My experience is that buses generally start picking up Guests from the Resorts as early as 6:30 a.m. - 6:45 a.m. for early morning breakfast reservations. I usually get everyone out to the bus stop no later than 7 a.m. for an early breakfast, such as yours.

    You can utilize any of the bus stops within Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort to catch an early breakfast reservation bus. If you arrive at the bus stop and do not see one to Disney’s Hollywood Studios within 10-15 minutes, simply let a Concierge or Front Desk Cast Member in the Resort know that you need to get to your breakfast reservation at Hollywood & Vine. They will happily call for a bus for you.

    I hope you enjoy your Disney Jr. Play ‘n Dine breakfast. Please let us know if you have any further questions!
