    We will be staying at Pop and have a 7:15 breakfast reservation at Chef Mickey's. Do the busses run early enough for us to get to the Contemporary on time? I also know that we can't go directly there from Pop. Where should we transfer? Thanks!

    Hi Carol! I strongly suggest you take a taxi for this reservation. Although the buses will run early and some will actually by pass the park to take you directly to the Contemporary it is not reliable for the timing!  You can catch a taxi right at the resort over where the Magical Express buses come in. Ask for some help to call a cab from the luggage valets if you don't see one right away. If you are a family of more then four you can have them request a van cab.

    If you have younger children who you would feel more comfortable in a car seat have them request a cab that is carrying a car seat...many of them have one in their trunks. It is not illegal for children to ride in a taxi without a car seat but this decision has to be yours.

    This trip would cost you less then $20 and would guarantee you arrive on time for this very hard to get reservation.  You can return by walking to the Magic Kingdom and catching a bus back to the Pop Century resort. With the Magic Kingdom being the closest park that is where you would want to make any transfers.

    Discuss your timing issues with the concierge at your resort. They can make suggestions and perhaps can make sure you will have a bus at a certain time to get you there.  I usually just make it easy on myself and sleep a little longer for the early mornings and take a taxi!
