    Hi, we have an 8:05am reservation at Hollywood and Vine. What time should we plan to arrive at the parking lot in order to get to our reservation on time. And how long does the buffet breakfast usually last? Thanks.

    Hi Julia,

    I really love Disney Junior Play 'n Dine at Hollywood and Vine at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  It is so much fun to see the characters from Disney Junior.  I have great pictures and memories of my daughter dancing, laughing and interacting with JoJo, Goliath and the Little Einsteins.

    I like to arrive anywhere at Walt Disney World early to ensure that I have enough time to get where I am going without feeling rushed.  For an 8:05 a.m. reservation, I would recommend getting to the parking lot at 7:30 a.m.  This will give you time to get organized, walk to the turnstiles, and have a leisurely walk to the restaurant.  Since you are going so early in the morning, you might be able to get away with arriving in the parking lot at 7:45 a.m. since it shouldn't be too crowded at that time of day.  When you get to the turnstiles, there is usually a cast member with a list of parties with reservations for dining that morning.  Simply find this cast member, give them your information, and you'll be off to your breakfast. I would probably plan about an hour and a half for the buffet breakfast, give or take a little.  This will give you plenty of time to eat, interact with the characters, and then be on your way.

    Have a wonderful time on your vacation Julia!  Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
