    Planning on doing Chef Mickeys and Playhouse Disney's Breakfast at Hollywood & Vine Restaurant. How much time do you think I need to plan from Animal Kingdom Lodge to each of the restaurants so I can make reservations accordingly. Appreciatte it.

    HI Daniel!

    You've made reservations at two of our favorite character meals!  My kids love the dessert buffet at Chef Mickey's and cannot get enough of their Playhouse Disney pals at Hollywood and Vine.  In addition, Animal Kingdom Lodge is a spectacular resort.  Being able to look outside your window or the resort windows and see amazing exotic wildlife is truly incredible.

    To be sure you make your reservations, I would allow 45 minutes to an hour for each.  (This is more than enough time, but I'd rather be early than stressed!)  To get to Hollywood Studios, you'll simply need to catch a bus from Animal Kingdom Lodge to Hollywood Studios.  To get to Chef Mickey's, you'll catch a bus to the Magic Kingdom and then either walk (5-7 minutes) over to the Contemporary (our preferred way), or catch a monorail. 

    If you have early reservations (before the parks open, for example), I recommend letting the concierge know the evening before your breakfast(s).  Disney runs special "character breakfast" buses very early in the morning to ensure that guests can make their meals on time.  The concierge can let you know what time to catch your bus for your specific reservations.

    Have a wonderful time!
