    We are staying at Caribbean Beach and planning a couple of early morning breakfasts (8am) at Epcot. What time is the earliest bus from resort to Epcot? Do we need to find different transportation?

    Hello, Sara. Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is one of my favorites to stay at. I know you are going to have a fantastic time. 

    In the mornings, the Walt Disney World Bus Service starts running about 45 minutes prior to each park opening. Depending on what time the park opens, for your early morning breakfast, that might not work out for you. If you've driven a vehicle yourself, you will be able to self park at Epcot and head in for your breakfast. If not, no big deal, you have another option! You will be able to use the Minnie Van Service to get to breakfast. This service will pick you up at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel and take you to the park in the morning. Minnie Vans start running at 6:30 am which is plenty of time to make your reservation. This service works with the Lyft mobile app so you'll want to make sure you have that downloaded on your smartphone. 

    Here are the steps to request a Minnie Van:
    • Open the app and select your Walt Disney World destination
    • Confirm your pick-up location and tap "Select Minnie Van"
    • The app will display a map tracking the vehicle en route and the identifying vehicle number to help you spot your car
    Prices vary based on the distance you are traveling but you'll be able to see the total cost and pay through the Lyft app. I've used the Minnie Van service many times and it's always reliable, on time and just plain fun!

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back and ask.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
