    We have an 8AM resv for Akershus Royal Banquest Hall Story Book Breakfest 12/26 and an 8:10 AM resv for The Cinderella Breakfest on 12/29. What is the quickest and easyist way to get there and what time do you think we should leave our resort (Pop Century

    Hi Jill,

    You have two wonderful character breakfasts booked!  I took my two-year old niece to Akershus this past August and she had an amazing time.  My two boys, who swore they didn't like princesses, didn't seem to mind the lipstick marks on their cheeks either!   You can use Disney transportation to arrive at both locations for your special meals.  While the buses don't officially start running until a bit over an hour before the parks open, Disney runs special "character breakfast" routes to ensure that guests with early advanced dining reservations make it to their destinations.  The best thing to do is inform the concierge at your resort when and where your reservations are the day before, and s/he will let you know where and when to catch a bus to Epcot (for Akershus) and Magic Kingdom (for breakfast at Cinderella Castle).  These buses are not listed on any schedule or map, so checking in at your resort is your best bet.  Once you catch the bus, the ride to the parks will take between 15-20 minutes.  You'll also need to allow time to clear security, scan your park tickets and make your way to the restaurants.  I would allow approximately an hour to ensure you make your reservation with room to spare!

    Enjoy your breakfasts!
