    We have an 8:15 AM reservation at CRT, & MK opens at 9:00 that day. Staying at AofA. How to get there on time? Will the bus be running yet? We'll have access to a car but seems buses are more recommended. What time will we be let in the park also?

    Hi Jody!

    I love the way you plan to start your day in Magic Kingdom Park! I'm a big fan of early mornings in the parks and love to take advantage of breakfast dining reservations.

    You should not have an issue taking a bus from Disney's Art of Animation Resort to Magic Kingdom Park in time for your morning reservation. The Resorts typically have a bus for early dining reservations in my experience.

    I recommend stopping by Guest Services at your Resort the evening before your reservation to let a Cast Member know and find out when the busses will begin for the day.

    If you do want to drive, that is always an option, but remember to add another 30 minutes or so to get from the Ticket and Transportation Center over to Magic Kingdom Park.

    When you get to the Main Entrance, a Cast Member will direct you to a line specifically for people with dining reservations. If you plan to arrive 30 minutes before your reservation time, I think you'll be in good shape.

    I hope this helps you plan a magical morning, Jody! Thanks for stopping by with your question,

    Andrea U.
