    Hello!My family and I will be staying at Port OrleansRiverside 5/31-6/6 2016. We have a 7:30am reservation for Chef Mickeys on 6/3.Magic Kingdom has early magic hours that day.We will be relying on Disney transportation. Will we be able to make it and how?

    Hi Cara!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Since the Magic Kingdom is scheduled to open at 8 a.m. on June 3, 2016, the buses from your resort should begin running about an hour, to an hour and a half prior to 8:00.  I would be hesitant to rely on a 7:00 a.m. bus to get me to that reservation.  My first suggestion is to stop by your front desk the day before your meal at Chef Mickey's to get a better idea of what time they expect the buses to begin running that next morning.  If you feel like it's early enough (I would want to be on a bus by no later than 6:45), then you would take the bus to the Magic Kingdom. Once there, I recommend walking on the path to the Contemporary Resort.  You could also take a monorail, but there is a nice path from the Magic Kingdom to the Contemporary that is about a ten-minute walk.  I believe that would be faster than the monorail because of wait times and lines.

    My absolute first choice would be to arrange for a cab or an Uber car.  I used Uber several times on my last trip.  It was very inexpensive and easy to use from the phone app.  Your front desk can also arrange for a cab to pick you up.  I think you could travel there for around $10 in a cab.   I hate being late for things, so that would be what I would do!

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
