    We will be staying at Caribbean Beach Resort and have ADR at BOG at 8:05 in MK on the day the park opens at 9. What is the best way to get to MK in time to meet our reservation? Thanks!

    Hi Pamela!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Breakfast at Be Our Guest will be a wonderful way to begin your day at Magic Kingdom Park.  You should be able to use Disney's complimentary bus transportation to arrive in time for your reservation.  Officially, bus transportation begins 45 minutes prior to park open, but in my experience it begins running about 2 hours prior to official park open to allow Guests with early breakfast reservations to arrive.  I would plan to be at your bus stop by around 7:00 am, 7:15 at the latest.  Check with your Resort Hotel to confirm what time the bus will begin transporting Guests in the morning.  You will see a display screen at the bus stop indicating when the next bus to your destination is due to arrive.  You can also see bus arrival times during your stay in the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    With a 9:00 am open, Magic Kingdom Park will actually begin admitting all Guests through the tapstyles about an hour prior, to allow everyone to make their way toward Cinderella Castle for the welcome show, "Let the Magic Begin".  Guests with pre-park opening reservations should check in at the early reservation line, usually all the way on the left of the Magic Kingdom Park entrance plaza.  Breakfast Guests are usually admitted around 7:45 am.

    Pamela, if you are concerned about arriving in time for your breakfast reservation, you may want to consider Disney Minnie Van service.  These adorable polka-dotted vehicles are requested through the Lyft app, and will take you directly from Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort to the drop-off area in front of Magic Kingdom Park.

    I hope that helps!  Please visit the Moms Panel again if you have any additional questions as you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.  Have a wonderful stay!
