    I just made a reservation for Chef Mickeys at WDW for October. Our reservation is for 7:15am and we are staying at the Art of Animation resort. What time should we leave our hotel and what is the best way to get there on time? By disney bus or my vehicle?

    Hi Ashley! If you have a vehicle, the quickest way would be to drive to the Contemporary Resort.  Otherwise, you can take the early bus that is available each morning for guests to use to get to their breakfast reservations.  When I stayed at the Art of Animation recently, we were told to be at the bus stop for 6:45 a.m. and the bus arrived promptly at 7:00 a.m.  If you decide to take the bus, be sure to check with the concierge desk the day before your reservation to get up to the minute schedule information.  Also, when boarding the bus let the driver know you have reservations at Chef Mickey's.  If his or her schedule allows, he/she may be able to drop you off at the Contemporary.  Otherwise, you will be dropped off at the Magic Kingdom bus depot and you can walk or take the monorail over to the Contemporary.

    Have fun at the Art of Animation - it's a wonderful resort!
