    . We are staying at AS movies and for our first day i was wanting to book crystal palace for breakfast, but before the park opens. My question is, I know that buses run an hour before park opening, how will we get there if the reservation is before this?

    Hi Laura! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Breakfast at The Crystal Palace with Winnie the Pooh and Tigger too sounds like a great way to start off your family vacation! The Crystal Palace is one of my favorite buffet dining experiences. There are so many food choices, it seems there is something everyone can enjoy. Top off the great food with some really fun character meet and greets, this dining experience is perfect.

    So as you said, typically buses from the resort hotels to the theme parks tend to run starting approximately one hour before park opening. If you make your reservation too early you will have to call for a taxi (this can be pricey), or if you have a car you can elect to drive. When I make my dining reservations, I try to make it for approximately 30 minutes prior to park opening. This way I line up early for the first bus to the park and am usually able to get to my dining location with time to spare! The Walt Disney World Resort does recommend that you reserve 60-90 minutes when traveling throughout the resort.

    I hope that you have a Tiggerific time at breakfast!
