    Love the panel! I have two questions. First, we have a 7:00am reservation at Chef Mickey's and are staying at All Star Music, how do we get to our breakfast? Second, what should we plan to wear for dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table? Thanks!

    There will be character meal buses that start to run from the resorts to the Magic Kingdom area beginning at around 6:15 a.m. You should speak with the front desk of your hotel and specifically ask what time the first CHARACTER MEAL bus begins its route. You should plan to be on that bus. If the cast member at the desk says to you that the buses begin running an hour before park opening, you should not take this as the answer. There are early buses specifically for character meals. Be persistent in getting the answer you want. When the bus arrives, head toward the Magic Kingdom. From the Magic Kingdom, hop on the monorail to Chef Mickey's. If there are not many people on your bus, speak to the driver and he may be able to bring you directly to the Contemporary.

    However, given all that, honestly, the best way to get to Chef Mickeys that early in the morning is to take a taxi. The bell desk at the hotel can call you cab that will be there in less than five minutes. The cabby will drive you right to the Contemporary with no worries. Prices can vary, but you could expect the cab ride to take about 15 minutes and cost in the ballpark of $15.

    There are no specific dress requirements for dining at Cinderella's Royal Table. Most guests wear their regular clothes for park touring: shorts, t-shirts, sneakers, etc. The one exception to this is girls ages about 2 to 8. Many young ladies are in a princess phase and are specifically at the CRT to have the full princess experience. You will see many, but not, all of the girls this age wearing princess costumes or accessories. This is not at all required. You will receive the royal treatment at the Royal Table no matter what you are wearing.
