    Hi! We are staying in the Art of Animation and have a reservation at the Chrystal Palace for 8:10am; will the buses be running early enough that we can make the reservation?

    Hi Nicole. I was delighted to see your question, as breakfast at The Crystal Palace is one of my must-do experiences anytime I visit Walt Disney World. Also, I must commend you on your Disney Resort hotel choice at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. Its larger-than-life theming is sure to create an immersive stay like no other.

    Buses typically start running about 45 minutes before the listed Early Theme Park Entry time. On March 3rd, that would be around 7:15am. I recommend allowing around an hour to get to the Parks especially during busy times early in the morning. If you can board the first bus in the morning, you should make your date with Winnie at The Crystal Palace.  

    If you're concerned you may miss your reservation, you could always book a ride-share service such as a Minnie Van to Magic Kingdom Park or any Walt Disney World destination. I recommend advance booking this efficient and paid-for cute Minnie Mouse-themed ride to ensure you have ample time to walk through security carefree and perhaps snap a picture in front of Cinderella Castle before heading for breakfast. 

    Regardless of how you get there, you will have a magical experience at The Crystal Palace. Winnie and his pals are so welcoming, and the puffy French toast is the stuff of my Disney dreams! Have the best morning as you make unforgettable memories, Nicole. Please let me know if I can help with anything else before your Walt Disney World adventure.
