    How early do buses run to all parks from POR? We would like to get an early morning breakfast reservation to CP, I want to make sure if we have a reservation for 8:05a.m. we can get to the park early enough and have enough time to check in. TY!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Judy!

    You will definitely be able to utilize Disney Transportation buses to make your 8:05 a.m. breakfast at The Crystal Palace. The buses to the theme parks do not begin regular operation until an hour before park opening, but Disney does understand that many Guests require transportation earlier than this. My experience is that buses generally start picking up Guests from the Resorts as early as 6:30 a.m. - 6:45 a.m. for early morning breakfast reservations. My family is quite fond of these early breakfasts so we can visit with our favorite Disney pals before climbing aboard a doombuggy, mine car, or magic carpet. I usually get everyone out to the bus stop around 7 a.m. for an early breakfast, such as yours.

    If you arrive at the bus stop at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort - Riverside and do not see a bus to Magic Kingdom Park within 10-15 minutes, simply let a Concierge or Front Desk Cast Member in the Resort know that you are needing to get to your breakfast reservation at The Crystal Palace. They will happily call for a bus for you.

    I hope you enjoy your breakfast with Winnie the Pooh and his Hundred Acre Woods pals! Be sure to try Pooh's Puffed French Toast, which I usually find in the kid's section. When I think of it, I am reminded of a quote from Winnie-the-Pooh, "Some people care too much. I think it's called love." Well, Judy, I think we could say I care way too much about that Puffed French Toast. *sigh*

    T-T-F-N! Ta-ta for now!
