    I plan on a Chef Mickey breakfast. We'll be staying at Saratoga Springs. When do busses start running to resorts from Disney Springs? Trying to decide between walking to Springs to get bus to Contemporary or taking bus to Epcot, monorail

    Hi Marianne,

    Welcome to planDisney. I'm more than happy to assist with your breakfast logistics. Let's dig in!

    Walt Disney World Bus Service is available between Disney Resorts Collection hotels and Disney Springs during normal operating hours until 1 hour after closing. The Hours & Events calendar is not available past July just yet, but it appears that Disney Springs opens at 10 a.m. most days this summer. Depending on what time your dining reservation is at Chef Mickey's, this might not work for your needs. While you could take a bus to EPCOT and then monorail through the Transportation & Ticket Center to Disney's Contemporary Resort I'd like to propose an alternate plan.

    I'd recommend boarding a bus to Magic Kingdom Park from Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa and then walking over to Disney's Contemporary Resort for your reservation. You could also walk to the monorail after going through security and glide right into the Contemporary for your meal. You might also consider using Minnie Van Service or another third-party ride share to get you door-to-door without any additional transfers or walking. These services do come with an added fee, but I always keep them in mind in case of inclement weather or transportation delays.

    You can review the bus times using the My Disney Experience Mobile App to see which option will get you to your meal the fastest. I used this on my most recent stay at Disney's Beach Club Resort and it saved me from running to the bus stop or waiting for the next bus if it pulled away before my arrival. You can also use the map icon within your My Disney Experience App to review other recommended transit options between any destinations on property. You'll see estimated travel time by bus, Disney Skyliner, boat, or monorail, and even walking directions when applicable.

    I hope this helped. Marianne. If we can answer any additional questions please come back and let us know. I hope you have a wonderful stay and an even more delicious meal! Say "hi" to Mickey and friends for me!

    Magic and memories,
