    I have a reservation at BOG at 830 am. Do you know what the earliest time Art of Animation offers transportation? am I better off driving there? I'd hate to be late!

    Hi Geneva!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Be Our Guest is one of my favourite restaurants - you will be enchanted as soon as you step inside Beast's castle in Fantasyland.  An early breakfast reservation at Magic Kingdom Park is the perfect time of day to see the park coming to life. The buses begin operating from the Walt Disney World Resort hotels around 45 minutes before park opening (so that would be 8.15am, unless Magic Kingdom Park is offering Extra Magic Hours to Disney Resort hotel guests, opening the gates at 8.00am, with buses starting at approximately 7.15am).  If you were able to board the first bus at around 7.15am you should have enough time as I would recommend you arrive at the park by 8.00am for your breakfast check-in at 8.30am. However, if you are concerned about arriving there on time, I would recommend using another method of travelling there. You can drive yourself, but you would be parking at the Transportation and Ticket Center, and then taking the ferryboat or monorail across to the entrance of Magic Kingdom Park - so please ensure you allow enough time for this. You could also consider the Minnie Van Service.  These accommodate up to six Guests, are driven by Cast Members and are a really fun way to start your day! You can make your booking on the Lyft app, which will also show the cost of this service. It is also worth noting that the Minnie Vans are the only cars permitted to take guests right up to the entrance of Magic Kingdom Park. 

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
