    Can I use Disney transportation to make a 930 AM brunch reservation at Disney Springs? I am staying at Old Key West. Do the buses or boats run that early since Disney Springs doesn’t open until10?

    Hello, Susan! It's my pleasure to welcome you to planDisney. I love chatting with a fellow Pennsylvanian about my favorite vacation destination. 

    How exciting that you'll be visiting Disney's Old Key West Resort this fall. My husband and I just stayed at this resort in July. I love the relaxing vibe of this property including the ferry to Disney Springs. On my most recent trip, water transportation did not begin until 10:00 AM. I was actually on the first boat of the day so that I could quickly make my way to Gideon's Bakehouse for a pistachio toffee chocolate chip cookie! 

    Susan, sometimes the buses do run a bit earlier (approximately 9:45-9:50 AM) than the boats, however, they are only scheduled to operate during Disney Springs hours (typically open daily from 10:00 AM- 11:00 PM). If you have a 9:30 AM brunch reservation, you may want to consider using a rideshare service like Uber or Lyft (for a fee) to ensure on-time arrival. If you have flexibility in your schedule, you may want to consider a later brunch time to open up your options for resort transportation. You'll find a wide array of Table-Service options at Disney Springs offer reservations beginning at 11:00 AM.

    I hope this helps as you're planning out your day at Disney Springs. If after brunch you need a refreshing treat to combat that Florida sun, check out Swirls on the Water for fun flavors of the iconic DOLE Whip®! 

    Susan, I'll be wishing on a star that you have a Magical day of dining, shopping, and enjoying the sights of Disney Springs. If you have any additional questions, please come on back to planDisney.
