    Hi Moms & Dads! I have a bus question - In April on a day that MK opens at 9am with no EMH, we have ADR at Crystal Palace for 8:35am. What is the earliest time we can bus from AofA to get some photo ops at MK b4 breakfast ? Thx so much !

    Hi Jeanette,

    Your family will love The Crystal Palace and you'll have awesome opportunities for photos beforehand. There is something so magical about Main Street USA, especially as an early morning guest! The brilliant colors and architecture of the storefronts and of course Cinderella Castle make for a gorgeous background.

    Disney Resort hotels will begin running Character Breakfast buses at 6:30 a.m. I always suggest to check with the Cast Members at Disney's Art of Animation the evening before, to be sure they'll have a bus running on the morning of your Advanced Dining Reservation. Have your confirmation number handy as you'll be asked to provide it periodically on your route that morning! When the bus arrives at Magic Kingdom and you're approaching the turnstiles, you'll see a line over on the left designated for early morning Advanced Dining Reservations. Again, you'll be asked to show your confirmation number and soon you'll be on your way to a tiggerific breakfast buffet! 

    Be sure to allow a minimum of one hour from bus stop to reservation time, and if you happen to over sleep, there are always cabs available to you. Simply request one from the valet stand at the front of your resort hotel. 

    I hope my information helps, Jeanette, and please visit us again for other questions!
