    Hi Krista, I prefer to drive to parks too (hate long bus lines at closing with 4 kids). Do all the parking lots open early enough for 8 am breakfast ressies? If 8 am ressie at tusker house and palace at epcot (princess) what time to leave room

    Hi, Kimberly!  Yes, the parking lots will be open in time for your breakfast reservations! In fact, you should get great spots that early in the day at both parks.  Since I don't know which resort you are staying in, I will have to give you an estimate on the travel time.  Obviously, how close the resort is to each park will play into your planning.  For both reservations, I would leave about an hour before check-in time.  You will enjoy being the parks early in the morning without the crowds.  Both of these restaurants require walking time as they are at the back of their respective parks.   Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
