    We are headed to Disney World for the first time next week! We have an appointment at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique (in Cinderella's Castle) at 8:15am. We are staying at Pop Century Resort. How early do you think we will need to leave to get there in time?

    Hi, Cassie! Becoming a royal princess at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is the perfect way to begin an enchanting day at Magic Kingdom Park. Be sure to stop in front of Cinderella Castle that morning after the royal transformation so Disney's PhotoPass photographers can take a picture of your regal family.

    We try to plan on arriving at Magic Kingdom Park between 7:30 - 7:45 a.m. when we have early reservations, such as yours. The regular bus transportation hours are listed as beginning operation one hour before the park opens. However, Disney does realize that Guests require transportation to royal engagements scheduled before the parks open. In my experience, we have hopped on the buses as early as 6:45 a.m. numerous times. In your case, I would be at the Magic Kingdom bus stop at Disney's Pop Century Resort around 7:15 a.m. This will give you plenty of time for the drive over and to complete admission to the park. When you arrive at the park, just head to the far left Mickey touchpoint, which should be marked as a point of admission for those with reservations. Be sure to have your confirmation number handy, just in case.

    I hope this helps you plan your magical day. Please stop by again if you think of any other questions. Have a wonderful first Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
