    We are staying off site and have a breakfast reservation at Cape May Cafe. Can we park at beach club resort or should we park at Disney springs and take a bus? Are those busses even available to us since we are not resort guests? Thanks!

    Surf's up, Caitlyn, and welcome to planDisney! Do you have your beach blanket ready? Your Walt Disney World Resort visit begins in a splash, and I can't think of a better way to start a Disney day than having a beach party with Minnie and friends. Let's dive in and look at your options for arriving in time to work on your tan AND have breakfast.

    Cape May Cafe at Disney's Beach Club Resort offers a delicious breakfast buffet hosted by our favorite bow-wearing mouse. The Salted Caramel "Beach Buns" sound scrumptious! The best part of the experience is meeting classic characters decked out in their beach attire! I've heard Daisy is incredibly excited about catching some rays!

    Guests with a valid dining reservation at Disney's Beach Club Resort should be able to park at the resort. Let the guard know your dining time and have it pulled up on your mobile app. Sometimes, there's a time limit for guest parking, but the guard will let you know those details.

    On rare occasions when it's really busy, the parking lot might be limited to resort guests. If this is the case when you arrive, you can try parking at Disney's BoardWalk shopping promenade. It's a pleasant stroll from the lake to the Beach Club. 

    If you plan to be at Disney Springs anyway, bus service typically starts running during operating hours around 10:00 AM. A final option for a truly chill day is to use a rideshare and be dropped off and picked up at the resort entrance. Minnie would be so impressed!

    Caitlyn, I hope your visit is full of sunscreen and beachy vibes! Please stop by planDisney anytime.

    Magic awaits,
