    We're staying at one of the value resorts, and have 8:25am reservations at Akershus Palace in Epcot. Epcot doesn't open until 9:00am. Will the buses and/or monorail be running early enough to get us to Epcot in time?

    Hi Valerie! If you choose to utilize Disney's transportation, be sure to give yourself plenty of time. I would plan on boarding the early morning bus at your Disney Value Resort at least one hour prior to your 8:25am Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR) at Akershus Banquet Hall. Buses will be running prior to official park opening. If you have access to a car, it might be best to utilize that option as it will be the most convenient way to get there. Alternatively I would recommend taxi services to transport your family to Magic Kingdom. You may have the front desk contact the taxi company or arrange for one yourself by calling (407) 699-9999. Once you arrive at the Epcot turnstiles look for the one opened for early ADRs. A Cast Member will check each ADR Confirmation Number from guests wishing to access the park. One advantage of an early wake up call is that you will have access to the park when it is relatively empty. That will give you the opportunity for some amazing pictures inside Epcot without crowds in the background. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. Have a memorable vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort!
