    Hi, if I’m stay at AOA hotel and have an 8:00 am breakfast at Crystal Palace MK at what time the buses start taking hotel guest to the parks. Thanks!

    Hi Liliana,

    Welcome to planDisney! It sounds like your vacation planning is off to a great start since you already have a character meal planned for breakfast. Character dining experiences are one of the things that make Disney World extra special and the Crystal Palace is a classic one. 

    Transportation from all of Disney World's resorts is a breeze and Disney's Art of Animation Resort is next level with access to the Disney Skyliner and bus transportation. As you mentioned, the easiest way to get to Magic Kingdom will be via bus transportation. Bus transportation to the Magic Kingdom will begin 45 minutes before the theme park opens. Since theme park hours have not yet been posted for the date you provided, I would check the calendar as you get closer to your reservation to see what time the theme park will open for guests that day. If there are Early Theme Park Entry Hours available to resort guests, resort transportation will begin 45 minutes before that posted open time. 

    If you have not already downloaded the My Disney Experience app, I highly recommend getting it. When we are on property at Disney World, we regularly use the app to find the quickest means of transportation to our next adventure. To view all of the currently available options for transportation in the app, click the map icon (second from the left on the bottom of the screen). This will pull up a map of Disney World which can be filtered at the top by "Transportation" where you we easily be able to see the closest transportation option to you. Additionally, after you have checked into your hotel, the app will have a convenient bus schedule for your resort each day so you spend less time waiting on buses and more time playing!

    Happy Planning,
