    Staying in early January 2013 at Art of Animation. Want to make early bkfast reservations before park opening. How early can we be, say, at Akerhus or Crystal Pal., considering we are taking the WDW bus, not driving? At what time do buses start running?

    HI Alberto!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    This is a great question.  Breakfast at the Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom typically starts at 8:05 am, while breakfast at Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus in Epcot typically starts at 8:00 am.  In both cases, it is usually possible to get there using Disney transportation.  I say usually, because the park buses typically don't start running until about an hour before park opening.  However, during most of the year, Disney does run an early morning bus for guests to get to their early morning breakfast reservations.  That said, however, I have been unfortunately stuck at a hotel waiting for a bus that never came for an early morning breakfast.  Thus I recommend that guests stop in their front lobby the night before and ask what is the best way to get to breakfast on time; sometimes guests might have to take a taxi to guarantee to arrive on time.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
