    If we have reservations for 1 hour prior to Magic Kingdom opening, will the bus get us from Art of Animation to the park in time for our dining reservations? We wanted to try to arrive 15 minutes prior to our reservation if possible as well...

    Hi Crystal,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question. A pre-park opening breakfast reservation is such a great way to start your day! That gorgeous view of Cinderella Castle, a delicious breakfast, and a chance to visit your favorite attractions with first-thing-in-the-morning crowd levels all add up to a magical morning.

    Crystal, the Cast Members at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort will be happy to help you plan your travels so you can sleep easy the night before your magical morning. There is usually an early bus for those with dining reservations, so just check in with a Cast Member in Animation Hall and let them know that you have an early breakfast in Magic Kingdom Park and would like to arrive 15 minutes early. They can help you figure out exactly when to be at the bus stop so you can rise and shine!

    Another fun option for your early morning arrival is to take use Minnie Van Service. These polka-dotted vehicles are just so adorable, and can get you to your destination with a little extra magic. The cost per ride is $25 and they can be ordered through the Lyft app; a Cast Member can help you with any questions or getting the app set up if you’re interested.

    I hope you have a fin-flipping good time staying at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Crystal. Make sure you spend time exploring the resort and taking in all the amazing theming and those Disney details; there’s so much to see and do, and I know you will love being “part of that world!”

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
