    Hello, We have a 7:30 am reservation for Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary Resort. How do I get there in time from the Art of Animation Resort. What are my options and how long do each of them take? Thank you!

    Hi Sylvia! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    Congratulations for choosing Disney’s Art of Animation Resort for your stay at the Walt Disney World Resort. This is a great hotel, I am sure you will have a pleasant stay there.
    Complimentary resort transportation usually starts running one hour before theme park opening hours. As many guests have very early reservations at different locations, you will see there are always buses that start running earlier. If you decide to use bus transportation, make sure you talk to a cast member at the hotel reception desk on the day before, and he will help you with update information regarding buses schedules and routes for the next morning. It will take you about 25-30 minutes from your hotel to TTC (Transportation and Ticket Center) and from there, you may take the monorail to get to Disney’s Contemporary Resort, you can consider at least 15 more minutes.
    The other option you have is taking a taxi cab. They are available at all Disney Resort Hotels, if you need one, just ask at Bell Services or at the reception desk and cast members will be glad to assist you. By taxi, it will take you about 15 minutes from your hotel to Disney’s Contemporary Resort. It is always my family’s alternative for early morning reservations. It is very convenient and we can sleep a little longer!
    Hope this helps your planning. Please, come back to visit us again if you have further questions.
    Have a wonderful day!
