    We are staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge and have 8:10 am reservations at Chef Mickey's. The Magic Kingdom does not open until 9 am that day (so busses run at 8?). I will not have car seats for the 2 that need them so a taxi is out. How do I get there?

    Do not despair! There are early buses for guests with character meals before park opening times. These start running prior to the first character meal seatings, not prior to park opening.  I would go down to the AKL bus stop at about 7:15. You should look for a bus to the Magic Kingdom or to the Ticket and Transportation Center, either of these would put you in a position to hop on the monorail to Chef Mickey's. 

    Also, you don't need to rule out a taxi. There are MANY van sized taxis that serve the WDW area (priced the same as regular taxis). Lots of these are equipped with two car seats. If you call down to the bell services desk at the AKL about 20 minutes before you'd like to leave, they can find a taxi for you that has the specifications you need.

    Have fun dining with MIckey!
