    Hi, I have a reservation for Crystal Palace at 8:40 AM. Please help me figure out what time I should arrive at the bus stop if I am at the Caribbean Beach resort. Thank you so much.

    Hello, hello there, Abigail! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney. Thanks a bunch for stopping by with your question!

    Wow, it looks like you were able to snag a coveted early morning breakfast reservation at Magic Kingdom Park! I've always loved grabbing breakfast before the park officially opens for the day, because it allows me to take the most beautiful shots of Cinderella Castle with virtually no people in the background.

    Abigail, bus service between Disney Resorts Collection hotels and all four Theme Parks begins about 45 minutes before opening. If Magic Kingdom Park opens at 9 a.m., this means that buses will start picking Guests up at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort around 8:15 a.m. If you're on the very first bus of the day, you should be arriving at the park at around 8:45 a.m. Walt Disney World Resort restaurants will typically hold your spot for up to 15 minutes, so you'd have about 10 minutes to walk from the bus stop to The Crystal Palace. Is this doable? Maybe. Do I recommend it? I actually don't!

    Instead of waiting around for a bus and worrying if you'll make it in time for your reservation, I suggest booking a Minnie Van to take you to Magic Kingdom at approximately 8 a.m. This is going to be the best and fastest way for you to get to your reservation with ease! 

    I hope my answer has helped clarify things for you, Abigail. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to reach back out to us so we may assist you further. Have a magical day!

    Warm hugs,
