    We have a 7:40 AM reservation for Chef Mickey's in January. We will be staying at AofA and rely on Magical Express to get around, will not have a rental car. If no parks open until 9:00 that day, how can we get to there? Party of 9, inc 3 kids under 5.

    Hi Adam:

    The general buses start running to the parks about an hour prior to park opening.  And special buses to the parks start running even earlier, as early as 6:30, for Guests who have early morning character breakfast reservations at restaurants inside the parks and close by resorts. These buses are unofficially referred to as "breakfast buses."

    When you check in your resort, I would confirm with the Cast Member that early morning buses to the parks will be running for you to catch your 7:40 am character breakfast.  The bus will likely drop you off at Magic Kingdom, where you can take a 10 minute walk from the Magic Kingdom to the Contemporary Resort.  I would let the bus driver know that you have a reservation at the Contemporary Resort where Chef Mickey's is located, and he or she may be able to drop you off directly at the resort, although that is not guaranteed. 

    Of course, if you want to guarantee that you will be at the restaurant on time or are like me and want the extra minutes of sleep, you can take a taxi.  Taxis are generally waiting outside resorts, or your resort concierge can help you arrange one.

    Enjoy your vacation.
