    We have a character dining breakfast each morning in the parks BEFORE the parks official opening. We planned to use the disney buses and monorail. We need to be there by 8am daily, will the transportation system be available that early?

    Hello, Jami!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    No worries!  One of the many things I love about Disney is that they think of everything.  The Disney Transportation System (buses) begins running between 6:30-6:45 a.m. for quests with early morning dining reservations.  Simply head on down to your resort's bus stop and look for a bus whose marquee may read one of the following:  "SPECIAL", "DINING" or "CHARACTER."  At least, these are the ones I am familiar with.  Let your bus driver know where you need to go and you will be on your way.  The monorail system typically begins running one hour prior to park opening.  However, I have seen it begin running earlier than one hour.  

    Thank you so much for visiting the Moms Panel.  Please come and join us again real soon should any new questions or concerns pop-up.  We are always happy to help!  May your Walt Disney World vacation be filled with many new and MAGICAL memories.  As a matter of fact, I am quite sure it will be!  

    ~Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"~
