    If I have a reservation at the Royal Table at 8:15 am and I'm staying on Disney property how to I get to the Magic Kingdom as I read the buses don't start running until 45 min before the park opens which is 9 am that day ?

    Hi Amey! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I bet you are dreaming of the delicious food that you will be dining on at Cinderella's Royal Table soon! On my family's last trip, we ate at Cinderella's Royal Table for dinner and we had an ah-maz-ing time. I highly recommend this dining experience to everyone now!

    My family always plans a few breakfast dining reservations prior to park opening. I love getting in the theme parks before general admission when the parks are still quiet and extra peaceful. It makes me smile just thinking about it! The good news for you is that we have always had transportation to the theme parks that early without any issues! From your question, I am assuming you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel that only has bus service to Magic Kingdom Park, so I suggest arriving at the bus stop by 7:00 A.M. Many Guests have early dining reservations, so we find buses are already running that early.

    I also recommend downloading the My Disney Experience mobile app prior to your trip. When you are there for your stay, you can check bus arrival times on the app by clicking on your hotel (this should pop-up auto-magically when you open the app and are logged into your My Disney Experience account), then selecting the bus times (this option will come up once your vacation begins). Then you will have a better idea of the time the next bus will arrive and can head out the door to catch it!

    I hope this helps ease your mind about your early morning transportation, Amey! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
