    Staying at Caribbean Beach. What time should we be at bus stop to get to parks for EMH and/or reg. park open? Also have bkfast at Chef Mickey's and Kona 2 days...what time should we leave resort to get to MK then to Contemporary/Poly? Only 18 more days!

    Hi Amy,

    Your trip will be here before you know it ... so exciting! I always recommend arriving at your bus stop 1-1.5 hours prior to your Advanced Dining Reservations located on the monorail.  In fact, early morning breakfast buses exist exclusively for guests with Advanced Dining Reservations, running as early as 6:30 a.m. Because the bus will pick up guests at multiple stops throughout Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, you'll want to consider the potential of about 15 minutes of internal pickups before the easy 20 minute drive to Magic Kingdom. It's a very large resort, but themed beautifully. You will enjoy the serenity and lush landscaping! If you've overestimated your timing, you can simply explore the resorts you're visiting when you arrive.

    I would also plan to leave at least an hour prior to park opening. Guests will begin lining up at the gates of the park, so you might as well get a jump start, too! You'll find the crowds growing throughout the day, so in this case, the early bird really does catch the worm. Head straight back to New Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom at park opening to experience the shortest waits throughout the day.

    Hope this helps, Amy. Feel free to send us any other questions coming to mind.

    Have a magical vacation!
