    Hello. We will be lodging at Saratoga Springs in September. On a particular morning we hope to have breakfast at Cape May Cafe at Beach Club. Our reservation is at 8:05 am. Will you be so kind as to inform us of the transportation options to arrive on time

    Hey, there Tracey, and welcome to planDisney; your official Disney place on the world wide web to get enchanted answers to your specific Disney vacation planning questions.

    September is one of my favorite months to visit "The Most Magical Place on Earth." The weather is warm, the kids are in school, and Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party takes place on certain nights and is a spook-tacular bash.

    The transportation options to get from Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa to Disney's Beach Club Resort for an 8:05 am breakfast at Cape May Cafe is by car, Uber, Lyft, taxi, or Minnie Van Connected by Lyft. Complimentary Disney Resort Transportation does not move Guests between Resort hotels unless they are in a cluster. For example, the Walt Disney World Monorail System and Disney Skyliner will carry Guests between the hotels on the monorail and Disney Skyliner lines. When Guests are at Disney Resort Collection Hotel that primarily use Walt Disney World Bus Service and want to go from one Disney Hotel to another, they have to take a bus to the nearest theme park or Disney Springs to transfer to a bus to the next hotel. This is not the quickest or most practical for an 8:05 reservation. The trip by car or rideshare should take under 15 minutes so I recommend leaving at 7:40 am.

    planDisney Pro Tip 1: I like to make advance morning dining reservations as close to the theme park we are visiting that day as possible. After your delicious breakfast with Minnie and her gang at Cape May Cafe you may either walk over to EPCOT or Disney's Hollywood Studios or take Walt Disney World Water Transportation.  It will be fastest to walk to EPCOT and the most comfortable and fastest route is by boat to Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    planDisney Pro Tip 2: Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween party officially begins at 7:00 pm but you may enter as early as 4:00 pm. When we plan to go to the party we make the morning a miniature golf, Disney Water Park, or Disney Springs day and then enter the theme park later. You only need a a party ticket to attend the party so we save on buying an additional theme park day ticket.

    Tracey, I hope this information helps you plan the most pixie-dusted Disney adventure. Please write me back directly with any follow-up questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
