    We have reservations for a character breakfast at Hollywood and Vine in Hollwood Studios at 8:10 in the morning. It says the park doesn't open until 9:00. How will we get into the park?

    Hi Jessica!

    Don't worry! If you're staying at a Disney Resort, Disney Transportation Buses to the parks begin operating extra early just to get Guests like you to your Character Dining Breakfast Reservation on time!

    Prior to regular park hours, you'll likely find a Cast Member stationed out at your resort bus depot with a clip board and 2-way radio, keeping track of which Guests need to get where, and to advise you when you can expect the next bus to arrive.

    It's always a good idea to allow up to 60 minutes for transportation time, especially for a dining reservation, so be sure to arrive at the bus stop no later than 7:15/7:30am.

    If you're staying off-site for your Walt Disney World vacation, simply be sure to arrive at Disney's Hollywood Studios by 7:45am.

    Upon arrival at the park, Cast Members will greet guests and allow early entry via the regular turnstiles to get into the park. After entering, you'll find more Cast Members with listings of Guests' reservations for Hollywood & Vine. After checking you off on the list, you'll be directed to the restaurant!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World Jessica!
