    Are the busses running from Animal kingdom Park back to the AK Lodge as early as 8:00 if I have an 8:30 AM breakfast reservation?

    Hey there, Donna, and welcome to planDisney! 

    Donna, each Walt Disney World vacation comes with countless Disney-specific vacation perks. One of the first to come to mind is all of the resort transportation options! I enjoy letting Disney do the driving for me on every one of my visits! Especially since I am the designated family driver. Walt Disney World’s Bus Service begins transporting Guests to the Theme Parks 45 minutes before park open each day. This includes the Early Theme Park Entry Hours for Disney Resorts Collection hotel Guests. I checked the Theme Park Hours for your arrival date, and it looks like Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park opens at 8:00 a.m. EST that week. This means that resort Guests can begin entering the theme park at 7:30 a.m. and that the Resort Buses will start running at 6:45 a.m. As you can see, this gives you plenty of time to make it to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park and catch the next available bus to the Animal Kingdom Lodge for your breakfast reservation. After all, you need those breakfast calories for energy to carry you throughout the remainder of your Disney day!

    I hope this helps, Donna! If you have more questions while planning your vacation, stop back by and let me know

    You’ve got a friend in me,
