    We have an 8:05 dining reservation at Hollywood and Vine on a day the park opens at 9am. We are staying at CSR, but I just read the buses don't start until 1 hour before the parks open. Do we need to make other arrangements to get there on time? Thanks.

    Hi Kimberley!

    I have great news for you!
    Special Disney Transportation buses begin operating as early as 6:30am, specifically to transport Resort Guests to early breakfast reservations around the parks!

    Head on down to the main bus stop at El Centro, the resort's main lobby location, at 7:00am on the morning of your reservation. You'll usually find a Cast Member will be there, clipboard in hand, tracking the Guests' needs for transportation to various locations around the property. Check in with the Cast Member and he or she will be able to let you know how soon to expect the next bus headed over to Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Upon arrival at the park, you'll notice a Cast Member will be allowing Guests with breakfast reservations to enter through one of the turnstiles and you'll be directed to the location of Hollywood & Vine, which is not far inside the park gates.

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel with your great question Kimberley!
    Please feel free to write me back any time if I may assist you further in the planning of your upcoming visit!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
