    Love the panel! We are staying at Pop Century and have 7:20am reservations at Chef Mickey. What is our best plan to get there on time? I have a feeling that we may not make it in time. Will they cancel our res. if we are late?

    Hi Heather!

    You can take Disney transportation to have waffles with Mickey.  Disney runs buses for visitors who have very early character breakfasts from each of the resorts several hours before the parks open.  Simply notify the concierge at Pop Century the day before your breakfast and s/he will let you know where and when to catch a "character breakfast" bus to ensure you make it to the Contemporary on time.  This bus may drop you off at the Magic Kingdom, where you will follow a short "walkway to the Contemporary" to your breakfast, or may make a special stop directly in front of the resort.  You could also take a taxi from your resort to the Contemporary, which would be faster.  A one-way fare should cost between $12-$15.  Taxis are readily available at the resorts, and the Cast Members at Valet will be happy to assist you secure one.

    If you are concerned about oversleeping, you can request a wake-up call in your resort room by hitting the appropriate button on your telephone.  You should aim to make it to Chef Mickey's a few minutes before your scheduled reservation.  Being a few minutes (less than five or so) late shouldn't cause a problem, but may delay your being seated.

    The character breakfast buses won't appear on a printed schedule, so be sure to ask at the front desk and/or concierge to find out where to "catch your ride"!

    Have a wonderful trip!
