    Dear Brian,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about planning ahead for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    For early morning Advanced Dining Reservations that involve going from one Walt Disney World Resort hotel to another, I typically recommend that guests take a taxi, a ride-share such as Lyft or Uber, or Walt Disney World Resort's Minnie Van Service, which will take you between hotels much faster than two buses with a transfer in between. 

    I recommend leaving yourself at least an hour, just to have plenty of time in case of issues or delays. I would always rather be early to an Advanced Dining Reservation and there are plenty of fun things to see at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort if you arrive a few minutes early.

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
