    Needing to get to AK,MK and HS prior to park opening for dining. What is the quickest way to get there from POP? Will be going between Christmas and NY so I know it will be extra busy.

    Hi Missy!

    Your holiday vacation to Walt Disney World Resort is going to be so magical! The decorations at the theme parks, Disney Springs and the Disney Resort hotels are so beautiful and you will be able to enjoy special entertainment and tasty holiday treats during your vacation. While Walt Disney World Resort will be incredibly busy during this time, if you are flexible and patient, you will have a magical holiday celebration!

    Complimentary resort transportation buses will be able to transport you to breakfast. Officially buses begin operating 45 minutes in advance of theme park opening, but I have found that buses are generally available earlier for Guests who have breakfast reservations. You can call the hotel front desk the day before your reservation to get a bus schedule for your breakfast and you will want to try to catch a bus that leaves about an hour before your reservation to ensure you have plenty of time.

    For the fastest transportation for your early morning breakfasts, I recommend that you take advantage of the Minnie Van Service! I love using Minnie Vans to get around Walt Disney World Resort because it's so fast and easy. This service utilizes the Lyft app to allow you to get private and direct transportation around Walt Disney World Resort by a Disney Cast Member for a fixed price. It's perfect for early morning breakfast reservations because you don't have to worry about bus schedules and you can get a few extra minutes of sleep! Minnie Vans begin operation at 6:30 a.m. and I recommend that you request your Minnie Van 45 minutes prior to your dining reservation to give you plenty of time to get to your restaurant.

    Let us know if you have additional questions as you continue planning! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
