    We are staying at Caribbean Beach Resort and have scheduled a 7:15am breakfast reservation at Chef Mickey's. Are we better off driving our own car to the Contemporary, or will the buses be running with enough time to make the reservation?

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your awesome trip planning question!

    If you will already have your car with you at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, then I would absolutely recommend taking your car to Disney's Contemporary Resort for your early breakfast reservation for sure! At that time of day, and with the time pressure of an early reservation, to me it makes the most sense to keep your stress levels low and your magic levels high. I'm not sure if you plan to go to a theme park after your breakfast, but if you do, you will have your car right there with you so that won't be a challenge at all to get to your destination. If you told me that you didn't have a car with you, then I would definitely say you can absolutely work it out with Disney transportation, but since you are saying that you have a car already, then I would say use it.

    Hope that helps with your magical planning! I love Chef Mickey's and I hope that you will too!
