    We are coming in June and wondering about a couple of our reservations. We are staying at Art of Animation and have breakfast scheduled at Epcot at 8:05 on the 2nd of July and Crystal Palace breakfast on June 29th at 8:00 Will we be able to catch buses?

    Hi, Chris! I love having those early morning, pre-park opening Advance Dining Reservations. These let us enjoy a great breakfast and usually be done in time to enjoy the first hour the park is open. Crystal Palace is a quite delicious start to your day! Be sure to check out the Kids' Corner of the buffet there and see if they have Pooh's Puffed French Toast. My goodness, that is some yummy in my tummy! 

    You will definitely be able to hop a Disney bus for your transportation over to Epcot and Magic Kingdom Park those mornings. While the buses do not begin their regular transportation schedules until around 45 minutes to one hour before the park opens, Walt Disney World Resort does want to make sure their guests have a way to get to those early morning breakfasts and tours. In my experience, I have caught a bus as early as 6:45 a.m. Just head to the bus stop at Disney's Art of Animation Resort around an hour before the time of your Advance Dining Reservation This will give you plenty of time for the ride over to the park and complete check-in at the dining location. If you are the bus stop for about 15 minutes and have not seen a bus, you may want to ask a nearby Cast Member when the next one is expected.

    Thanks for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions!
