    Hi Megan! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your visit to "The Most Magical Place on Earth" is VERY close now! I am happy that you have come to us for help ... all of the Disney Parks Moms Panelists want to make sure your vacation to our favorite destination goes as smoothly as possible!

    Walt Disney World complimentary bus transportation begins running prior to the theme park's opening hours. My family loves to plan our Character Dining breakfast reservations for the early morning hours, so we get to walk through the theme parks without the crowds. It is the perfect opportunity to take a few pictures with hardly anyone else around!

    I am guessing that your breakfast is at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot since you mentioned Belle. All you will need to do is hop on the bus to Epcot from your Disney Resort hotel. Since your breakfast reservation is at 8:00 A.M., I suggest getting to the bus stop around 7:00 A.M., so you can catch one of the earliest buses traveling to Epcot. There will be a breakfast reservation entrance open to allow you to enter the theme park early and your reservation will be verified by a Cast Member. Once you are in the theme park, you will have a bit of a walk to the Norway Pavilion in World Showcase and you don't want to feel rushed. If you download the My Disney Experience mobile app, you can view approximate bus times for your resort, so you can know exactly when to expect the next bus for Epcot to arrive at your bus stop!

    I hope this helps, Megan! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
