    We are so excited about our return trip to WDW in 10 days!! In the past, we have enjoyed the wonderful breakfast at Cape May by taking the bus from POFQ to HS, then the boat to Beach Club. Is the boat still available, or should we plan on Skyliner?

    Hey there, Karen!  

    It’s so wonderful to see you back at planDisney with a fabulous planning question! How exciting that you’re returning to the Walt Disney World Resort so soon, you’re going to have an incredible vacation. Like you, I love thinking ahead through the logistics of our trip to be sure everything goes smoothly. I’m happy to help you understand the best way to Disney’s Beach Club Resort for breakfast when staying at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter.

    Please note that complimentary transportation hours vary, so please inquire at your resort upon arrival for the latest transportation guide and exact operating hours for the week of your stay. Yes, your previous plan of taking bus transportation to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and a boat to Disney’s Beach Club Resort will still work, assuming all forms of transportation are running before your breakfast reservation at Cape May Café. You may also walk from Disney’s Hollywood Studios to the resort along a beautiful walking path that hugs the waterway.

    If you haven’t visited since the Disney Skyliner made its soaring debut, I highly recommend this relaxing ride during your stay. However, the Disney Skyliner runs from Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, and Disney’s Riviera Resort to the EPCOT International Gateway so it’s not the most efficient path from your stay at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter.

    My family enjoys using Disney’s Minnie Van Service when we have an early breakfast reservation at another resort, as I’ve found it the most effective way to navigate between resorts (especially in the early morning hours). This service is powered by the Lyft mobile app and offers door-to-door personalized service by Disney Cast Members in an adorable Minnie Mouse themed vehicle!  

    Check out the handy transportation feature within your My Disney Experience Mobile App – you can even try it from home to imagine various solutions for your navigation before arrival. To find this, select the main menu (≡) and then click the Transportation tile. You can explore specific transportation options from that page, or search for a destination using the magnifying glass icon. From various destination pages within the app, click Get Directions and you will see a familiar map tool that can guide you from place to place within the Walt Disney World Resort property. I love this tool for finding unique solutions on our trips and the estimated travel time is a Disney planner’s dream feature!  

    My family also adores the beachy breakfast at Cape May Café. Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast now begins with a delicious basket of warm cinnamon rolls with pour-it-yourself vanilla sauce presented at your table. The gorgeous buffet spread includes Mickey shaped waffles, eggs, meats, yogurts, oatmeal, and more to fuel a busy theme park day. Visits with your favorite character friends in their beach attire are sure to make everyone smile and start the day off right! 

    I hope this was helpful in finalizing the details of your special trip, Karen. I’m so excited for you to experience old favorites and to see everything that’s new at the Walt Disney World Resort. Please let us know what other questions you have. 

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
