    We will be staying at old Key west resort in October. We plan to make a reservation for breakfast at Chef Mickeys in the Contemporary. How much time should we allow for the bus travel from Key West to Contemporary? Or, can you even ride the bus?

    Hiya, Dave! Thanks for your question.

    Walt Disney World is great when it comes to transportation options, and there are ways to get from Disney's Old Key West Resort to Disney's Contemporary Resort. It's just a quick trip between your wake-up call and those Mickey waffles. 

    Disney bus transportation begins running about an hour before the theme parks open, so whether or not the bus will be an option depends upon your dining reservation time at Chef Mickey's. If your reservation isn't super early, you'll take the bus from your resort to Magic Kingdom Park, and from there, you can either take the short walk over to the Contemporary Resort or hop on the resort monorail for a quick ride over. 

    If you're using the bus, I'd say give yourself an hour between the time you leave Old Key West and your reservation time. The trip itself isn't that long at all, but you may have to wait a few minutes for the bus, and it's better to give yourself a little breathing room.

    Another option that may work if your reservation is super early is the Disney Minnie Van Service. Minnie Vans operate like a rideshare service through the Lyft app, and this service begins running at 6:30 AM. It's not only perfect for an early morning breakfast reservation, but it also lets you sleep in a few minutes longer. You can probably shave your travel time down to 30 to 45 minutes using this service.

    Enjoy a fabulous vacation, Dave!
