    Hi Panel Staying at Art of Animation. We have bkft at Crystal Palace at 8:20am. How early do you recommend getting to the buses at our resort in order to make the reservation in time and snag some photos of our twins on an empty Main Street USA? Thanks!

    Hi Sarah! Disney understands that many of their parks and resort restaurants have early dining times and guests will need to get there. Buses should start running from the resorts at 6:30am to allow guests to reach their destination on time. I suggest you go to the bus stop area of the Art of Animation resort between 7/7:15am and get on the first bus that comes that is the Magic Kingdom destination. Tell the driver you are needing to get there for an early dining reservation. (Other guests might be going to resorts and drivers often go to those resorts if no-one on the bus is actually going to the park.)  Once you arrive do NOT stand in a general queue line. Those guests with early dining are allowed entry before park opens and the turnstile is located on either side of the entrance. It can change so ask a cast member if you do not see it. They will have a list of those with reservations. I always take my confirmation number or paper just in case! There will be other early dining guests on Main Street but you will have a better chance to get good pictures!
