    We have breakfast reservations at 8:15 at Akershus and we are staying at Art of Animation. What is the best way to get to Epcot that early and how to we get into the park before it opens?

    Hi Joy! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  It sounds like you have some wonderful plans made for your upcoming Walt Disney World adventure.  I hope you and your family have a fantastic trip.

    In order to reach Epcot from Disney's Art of Animation Resort for an early morning Advanced Dining Reservation, you will take the bus headed to Epcot located outside of Animation Hall. Each Theme Park will have buses running for Guests who have early breakfast reservations. When you check in at your Resort ask the Cast Member who will be  assisting you what time buses begin running on the day you will be dining. When you arrive at Epcot you will see a Cast Member with a sign that says 'Guests with Dining Reservations. You will head to this line and the Cast Member will take your name and make sure you have a reserved spot. Once they find your name they will scan your tickets and you will be able to enter the park before it opens and head to your restaurant. Isn't that wonderful? I would allow at least 60-90 minutes to reach your dining location. The restaurant is a little bit of a walk from the front entrance. 

    Please give my best to Princess Belle,  she is my favorite Disney royal.  If you have any other questions please let me know. I love lending a helping hand to fellow Guests.
