    We have a reservation for Crystal Palace at 8 am on a day that the park opens at 9 am. The website says that the bus service starts 45 min before the park opens. How can we get on time from pop century to magic kingdom? Thanks!

    Hey, Andrea! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for POPping in with your question! Breakfast with Winnie the Pooh and friends at The Crystal Place is my favorite way to cure the rumbly in my tummy. There are so many delicious items to try at this character dining location, but I have a tip for you. As an adult, you may try to stay in the main areas of this buffet. Trust me, you do not want to bypass the kids section of the buffet! Pooh's Puffed French Toast is found there, something I would definitely traverse the Hundred-Acre Woods to have. You may actually want to try several pieces of it so you have lots of energy to bounce with Tigger!

    To reach your pre-park opening breakfast, you will definitely want to take the complimentary Disney bus transportation from your Resort to Magic Kingdom Park. While the transportation hours are listed as beginning 45 minutes to an hour before park opening, Disney does understand that Guests need earlier transportation to the many early breakfast meals offered at the parks and Resort hotels. In my experience, I have hopped on one of these buses at our Resort hotel as early as 6:45 a.m. When you arrive at Magic Kingdom Park, just head to the far left Mickey touchpoints, which should be marked as a point of admission for those with breakfast Advance Dining Reservations. Be sure to have your confirmation number handy, just in case.

    I hope you have a Tiggerific day at Magic Kingdom Park, Andrea. Please let us know if we can assist you further as you continue to plan your visit. T-T-F-N! Ta-Ta For Now!
