    We are interested in a pre-park opening ADR at Magic Kingdom, and are staying at Pop Century. Do you know how early the resort buses operate so we know when we can leave the Pop to make it to the Magic Kingdom for 8am ADR? (when MK opens at 9am) thanks!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Diana! Early morning breakfast is a great way to start your day in the parks. There’s nothing like a magical meal to set the pace of the day.

    You have an option or two to get to the parks before they open. Bus service from Resorts like Disney’s Pop Century Resort usually begins about 60 minutes before the parks open. You can always inquire with your concierge about what time the earliest bus is scheduled on the day of your morning meal, but stay at that Front Desk for a bit of more information. The concierges can also text you a special code for your LYFT app to enable the Minnie Vans, a flat rate transportation service operated by Cast Members. Brightly painted Minnie-themed vans can whisk you and your family (supplied with two car seats) off to any destination on Walt Disney World Resort property as early as 6:30am in the morning. This VIP service is super direct and my preferred way to arrive at the parks and Disney Springs in the early and very late hours. It’s super plush and perfect for these situations.

    If you need more information about your Magic Kingdom meal or further insight to the Minnie Vans, I’d be more than happy to help. You’ve got a friend in me! ~ Lindsey P.
