    We will be staying at AKL this summer and we made an ADR for breakfast at Chef Mickeys at 7:05. Will there be a bus that will take us to Magic Kingdom park that early? If not, what other transportation options do we have without a car? Thank you!

    Hi Kelly! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  It is so great to hear from you again.

    I have never had the opportunity to stay at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge but from all of the pictures I have seen and reports I have heard, this Resort hotel is absolutely stunning!

    Complimentary Resort Transportation begins approximately one hour prior to Theme Park Opening. I did look ahead at the park hours beginning on July 22, 2016. Most of the Theme Parks open around 9:00 A.M. There are some days with extra magic hours that begin at 8:00 A.M. at various parks however with an opening that early you still would not be able to depend on the bus to get you to your dining reservation at that time. When we make our early dining reservations we usually call for a cab to take us to our reservation. I always go to the Concierge desk at my Resort hotel as they are able to direct me to a reputable cab company.

    I hope that you enjoy breakfast at Chef Mickey’s as much as I do!
