    I am hoping to get the earliest adrs possible at each of the parks for 12/8-13 visit. Worried about how early we would have to catch "Character bus" from AS Music.Hoping for 8AM ADR at CRT/CP/Hollyvine/Akershus/Tusker/Ohana. Suggestions on times?


    I think that in all cases you are probably good to plan for advanced dining reservations in the 8:00 am to 8:30 am time frame. There are a few reasons why this is a good thing. First, getting into the parks before the gates open is both a great photo opportunity, as well as a fun memory making experience. It is just so cool to walk around when nobody is around.

    As for the "character bus" there really is no actual character bus, but Disney will make sure you get to your respective park for breakfast on time. I can't promise for you what time you will have to catch a bus to the parks, but you should find that it is not so onerous of a time.

    When you arrive, speak to the transportation desk about your ADR times. They will let you know the when's of timing. And if you find that any one of them is especially early, you could always grab a cab if the time is so early that it makes for an unpleasant start time. Yes, that is an extra cost, but it should not be too much. Probably under $20.

    I hope that this helps! Write me back if you have more questions!

    Have a magical vacation!
