    Staying at the cabins fort wilderness in January, very excited to have a breakfast reservation at Cinderellas at 8:10am, just wondering about best options for transport to magic kingdom, 2 adults 2 toddlers, really don’t want to be late! Thanks!

    Hi Sian!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am so excited to see that your holiday is just over a month away!  I am also very happy to see that you have a breakfast reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table - inside Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park!  This is one of the most sought-after reservations in the whole of Walt Disney World Resort.  You will meet Cinderella herself for photos before you ascend the staircase to the dining room.  Once you are seated and enjoying your meal, you will be visited by several of the Disney Princesses who will spend time with you for photos and autographs! There is a lovely boat ride from Disney's Fort Wilderness direct to Magic Kingdom Park, but the complimentary Disney transport only starts operating around 45 minutes prior to theme park opening times.  If Magic Kingdom Park is opening for Extra Magic Hours between 8.00-9.00am (exclusive to Disney Resort hotel Guests only) on the day of your reservation - see the calendar here for exact opening hours - your boats (or buses from Outpost Depot nearer to the front of the Resort hotel) will start their service at around 7.15am, and providing you were able to board the first boat or bus, you should have enough time to make it to your 8.10am reservation.  Please remember that you need enough time to clear the security bag check, and make your way to the entrance signposted for 'Guest with early dining reservations'.   

    If the park opens at 9.00am that day, I would highly recommend using the Disney Minnie Van Service for an efficient and magical start to your day!  Driven by knowledgeable and friendly Disney Cast Members, these vans can be ordered by using the Lyft app on your smartphone, where you can also see the cost of using this service, and make your payment.  These vans can accommodate up to 6 Guests (including 2 child seats if required).  You can also order regular Lyft vehicles by using the same app.  It is worth noting that the Minnie Vans are the only cars permitted to bring Guests to the entrance of Magic Kingdom Park.  All other cars must drop off at the Transportation and Ticket Center where you will transfer to a ferryboat or monorail to take you to the entrance of the park (therefore adding extra travelling time).  You can enjoy the relaxing boat ride back to Disney's Fort Wilderness at the end of your day!  

    You might like to use this interactive map - just click to zoom in on Disney's Fort Wilderness to help you navigate your way around the Resort.  If you are unfamiliar with the location, start by clicking to the right of Magic Kingdom Park.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical holiday to Walt Disney World Resort.
