    Hello Cathy, We made a reservation at Chef Mickey for breakfast at 720 am, we are staying at AOA, what is the best way to get there, and if we go by bus how much time should we give ourselves to get there? Also how early do the buses run?

    Hi again Nichol!

    Oh boy, first you have Fulton's Crab House booked, now Chef Mickey's.  You certainly have some great dining planned for your vacation!

    Character Dining Buses begin running about 6:30 a.m. for guests with early morning reservations.   You will want to stop by the front desk or the resort concierge the night before your breakfast to confirm that a bus will be available for your family.   Plan to be at the bus stop by 6:40 a.m.   Take the bus to the Magic Kingdom, but let the driver know you need to get to the Contemporary as they will sometimes make a special stop there if their schedule allows.  If the only stop will be at Magic Kingdom, it is just about a 10 minute walk to the Contemporary from the bus stop.  Chef Mickey's is on the 4th floor of the resort.

    After breakfast, you can walk back to the Magic Kingdom, hop on a bus to Hollywood Studios or Animal Kingdom, or take the monorail to the Transportation and Ticket Center where you can catch a monorail to Epcot. 

    Chef Mickey's is a great way to start your day of magic.  Have fun and say "HI" to Mickey and his pals for me!
