    Hi, we have a breakfast reservation at CRT at 8:20 coming up soon on a day that also has Extra Magic Time. Will the ferries from Fort Wilderness be able to take us to the magic kingdom in time for our ADR?

    Greetings Carly!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Last summer my daughter and her cousin had an enchanting makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique followed by a regal lunch at Cinderella’s Royal Table. Our mini-princesses were delighted to meet their muses, and us mommas enjoyed a delicious meal! I had a version of the Shrimp and Grits, and I highly recommend it. Outside of Charleston, South Carolina, it was one of the best I’ve had!

    Complimentary water taxis from Disney’s Wilderness Lodge usually start about 45 minutes before Park opening (including Extra Magic Hours). One of our Disney “homes” is Copper Creek Villas & Cabins, and our favorite mode of transport to Magic Kingdom Park is the boat. It is a quick, convenient and incredibly relaxing start to a fun-filled day. If you don’t want to take the boat, bus transportation from the Resort starts approximately one (1) hour before Park opening.

    Carly, being in Magic Kingdom Park in the morning before the crowds is super special. I love the stillness in the air (only interrupted by the chirping of birds), and feeling like the whole Park is there just for me! Make sure to get to Cinderella Castle a few minutes early so that you can take your picture on Main Street, U.S.A. without anyone in the background!

    Now, if you want a VIP arrival like your photo, hail a Minnie Van through the Lyft app. They will pick you up at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge and deliver you to the gate of Magic Kingdom Park. A Minnie Van, exclusive pictures, and a royal meal sounds like a glamorous start to a Magical Day!
