    My family is going to stay at Port Orleans Riverside this February, and we have a ADR at Crystal Palace at 8:15 on a day when the park opens at 9:00. Will a bus run early enough for us to make our reservation? Or should we plan to drive to the park?

    Oh Leigh Ann, you're doing two of our faves - staying at Port Orleans Riverside and breakfast with Pooh and his friends at the Magic Kingdom's Crystal Palace. Be sure to try Pooh's french toast. Makes my mouth water just thinking of it.

    I would definitely take the bus to the Magic Kingdom, as one you park, you're still a boat or monorail ride away. The bus ride will take about 15 minutes, but you will still need to go through security before entering the park. It'll take about 10 minutes to walk to the restaurant and check in. I would leave no later than 7:30 am. Check with Bell Services the night before and they'll let you know when to expect the bus. Be sure to give yourself enough time to take some photos, as being there before the park opens gives you the rare opportunity to take pictures without the crowds.

    Write back with any other questions Leigh Ann! Wishing you a magical vacation!
