    Hello! We're staying at Pop. We have a ADR for 7:05am at C. Palace on Dec. 23rd. MK wont open til 9am that day though. I have read on here that there are buses that run for VERY EARLY dining ressies. Is that still true? I really don't want to take a cab..

    Hey Desteni-

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We love Disney’s Pop Century Resort and highly recommend a stay. When you walk into Classic Hall and see memorabilia from the 50s - 90s, you immediately relive childhood moments. We have visited three times and each time “lived” in a different decade themed building. The kids enjoy running up and down the Yo-Yo and Rubik’s cube stairs.

    My co-panelist Heather gave you some magically spectacular information. Here is some more details based on your dining time. Disney Transportation buses, most days, will begin shuttling Guests around 6:30 a.m. for early dining experiences. We have had a wonderful experience with these buses and have never missed a reservation. If you want more control and make sure you arrive at your early dining experience on-time then I would suggest a taxi. They are usually waiting curbside at your resort to take you anywhere in the resort. The fare should be between $10-$20 which is a very small fee to be worry free.

    Disney Dad Tip: I love early dining at The Crystal Palace with my tubby little cubby pal, Pooh, and his friends. We have celebrated three birthdays there and appreciate the low crowds before the park opens. If you get there early enough be sure take notice of all the names on the windows of the buildings on Main Street USA. They are the magic makers and Imagineers who waved their wands to make Walt Disney World Resort a reality. Also have your camera ready to take some amazing photos of your family in front of Cinderella Castle without the hustle of opening crowds cluttering the background. It is a truly magical moment.

    Desteni, enjoy making many delicious and Magical Memories!
