    My daughter has an 8:30 am appt. @ BBB in Nov. We're staying @ Pop Century resort. What time should we take the resort bus? Would it be better to take a taxi? Can our entire family of 4 accompany her into Magic Kingdom for this appointment ?

    Hi, Ginneine! Beginning your morning at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is a magical way to start your princess's day! You should have no problem escorting her to this regal appointment by using Disney transportation. This is usually much preferred over taxi service, especially when Magic Kingdom Park is the destination, as the taxi would not be able to take you directly to the park. While it is no enchanted pumpkin coach, the always lovely Disney buses usually begin service much earlier than park opening. In my experience, we have even hopped aboard as early as 6:45 a.m. Simply head to the front of your Resort, find the bus stop for Magic Kingdom Park, give your magic wand a little flick, and a bus should appear shortly. Oh and Ginneine, don't forget the thingamabob that does the job, "bibbidi bobbidi boo!"

    Since your appointment is at 8:30 a.m., I would recommend that you head to your bus stop a little around 7:15 a.m., but no later than 7:30 a.m. Once at Magic Kingdom Park, you will proceed through bag check and head to the entrance at the far left, which is a designated entrance for Guests with pre-park opening reservations. The Cast Members there will have a record of all reservations, but you may want to have your confirmation number handy just in case. Your whole family is more than welcome to accompany the princess to her royal appointment. You are also welcome to bring your camera to capture every moment of this transformation. There will be a Disney PhotoPass photographer on hand, which I am always thankful for. Those photographers always seem to get the most magical moments I miss. 

    I hope this helps you plan your morning a little easier, Ginneine. Please let us know if you have any further questions as you continue to plan your magical day!
