    We will be staying at Port Orleans Riverside and have a breakfast reservation at 8:25AM at the Tusker House in AK. Can you suggest what time we should leave our hotel to get to breakfast if going by bus? I'm nervous about arriving in time. Thank you!!

    Jambo, Krista! You will definitely be able to utilize Disney Transportation buses to make your 8:25 a.m. breakfast at Tusker House Restaurant. The buses to the theme parks do not regularly begin operating until an hour before park opening, but Disney does understand that many Guests require transportation earlier than this. My experience is that buses generally start picking up Guests from the Resorts as early as 6:30 a.m. - 6:45 a.m. for early morning breakfast reservations. My family loves the early breakfasts so we can visit with our favorite Disney pals before searching for the elephants and zebras on Kilimanjaro Safaris. I usually get everyone out to the bus stop no later than 7:20 a.m. for an early breakfast such as yours.

    If you arrive at the bus stop at Disney’s Port Orleans - Riverside Resort and do not see a bus to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park within 10-15 minutes, simply let a Concierge or Front Desk Cast Member in the Resort know that you are needing to get to your breakfast reservation at Tusker House Restaurant. They will happily call for a bus for you.

    I hope you enjoy your breakfast with Donald and his safari pals! Please let me know if you have any further questions.
