    Staying at Carribean Beach Hotel in May. If I make reservations for breakfast at Hollywood and Vine in Hollywood Studios for 8am will I be able to take the bus and make my reservation or will I need to find my own transportation to the park?

    Hi Shellie,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so happy to hear that you are planning on enjoying Hollywood & Vine during your vacation because it is one of my family's favorites. Plus, I think early morning Character Dining inside the park is a great way to start your day. A good breakfast in everyone's belly and some fun Characters to meet during your meal will be an amazing start to a magical day!

    Generally, complimentary resort transportation buses begin an hour prior to the theme park opening. However, there are often early buses available for Guests who have morning breakfast reservations. So I recommend that you call the front desk at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort the day before your dining reservation and ask for the next morning's bus schedule. In my experience, the Cast Members have been able to give me a detailed schedule that I have been able to use to plan our morning departure time.

    Generally, I recommend that you allow an hour to get from your hotel to your reservation using the bus system so you aren't rushed. If a bus is not available that early, then I recommend that you use a Minnie Van, which is my new favorite mode of transportation at Walt Disney World Resort, or a taxi to get to your reservation. If you are using a Minnie Van or taxi, then I recommend that you allow 30-45 minutes transportation time.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions as you continue your planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
