    We have a reservation at 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian at 8:20 in the morning and will be staying at Port Orleans Riverside. Will there be bus transportation available on that morning around 7:15-7:30 to transport our group of 8?

    Thanks for stopping by the Moms Panel with this great question, Debra!

    The complimentary Walt Disney World® Bus Service begins running 45 minutes prior to the listed theme park opening time. That said, you'll find there are buses running even earlier specifically for Guests with early morning dining reservations. When you arrive at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, please ask what time those early buses will start running the morning of your 8:20 a.m. reservation at 1900 Park Fare. Be sure to inquire about the exact pick-up location too. I suggest allowing a minimum of 50 minutes for travel time, start to finish.

    If for whatever reason the early bus service is not operating from your resort, then request rides from enough taxis, Lyft™, Uber or Minnie Van™ Service vehicles to accommodate your entire party. In fact, I generally recommend choosing this route for breakfast reservations earlier than 9:00 a.m. We recently hired a taxi for an early morning breakfast reservation which cost around $12. You'll typically find a few taxis waiting at the front of the Resort hotel. That said, I suggest calling the front desk or Lobby Concierge about 20 minutes before you need to leave. Alternatively, make the request for Lyft™, Uber or Minnie Van™ Service vehicles for pick up.
