    Hello, we have a reservation for Cinderella's Royal Table at 8:35am. What time should we leave Pop Century and what is our best option for transportation? Will buses be running at that time of day?

    Heigh-Ho Kattie,

    Welcome to planDisney I am happy to help with your curiouser and curiouser inquiry. Beginning your magical day at Cinderella's Royal Table is truly a Dream Come True. One of my favorite magical and memorable moments is of my daughter, dressed in her Cinderella ball gown, running down an almost empty Main Street U.S.A. towards the castle. It was a practically perfect moment.

    Guests, staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, are privy to Early Theme Park Entry meaning the parks open 30-minutes prior to regular park hours for Resort Guests. Buses typically begin running 45-minutes before Early Theme Park Entry opening hours, which should work in your favor. I suggest being at Disney's Pop Century Resort's bus depot an hour before your reservation time and boarding the first available bus to Magic Kingdom park. Once you arrive, at the entrance of Magic Kingdom park, and if the park has yet to open look for a Cast Member or a sign specifically for Guests arriving for early dining reservations. They are usually towards the left of the entrance. Here a Cast Member will confirm your reservation and scan your tickets for entry into the park and onward to your dining destination.

    It's an exciting time knowing your trip is just a couple of dreams away. Enjoy celebrating Walt Disney World's 50th Anniversary and may you create many of your very own magical and memorable moments to last a lifetime.  

    Have a Magical Day,

    Amy M.

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
