    I made ADR for Tusker House at 8:15 (park opens @9). I just read that the buses don't start running until an hour before the park opens. I was hoping to be at the park by 7:50. Will the bus run that early? Thanks!

    Hi there Melissa,

    Tusker House is one of my favorite character dining experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort and it's really cool that you were able to book a reservation before park opening because your walk to the restaurant in an empty Animal Kingdom Park will be really special.  

    No worries on transportation.  Buses will beginning running around 6:30 am to accommodate those guests with early morning reservations.  I am not sure where you'll be staying, but buses do come and go less frequently at this time of day. If you are ready to board by 7:30 to 7:45, you will arrive at Animal Kingdom Park around 8:00 which will give you plenty of time to enter and make your way back to Tusker House!  Be sure to try the Jungle Juice for me and tell Mickey and the gang I said "Hello!"

    Best wishes,

    Amanda F.
