    We are staying at Saratoga Springs and have reservations at 8:55 am Topolino's next week. What time does transportation start running and what would be the best method/route to get there.

    Hello, Kristin,

    Thank you for sending your question to planDisney.  You are in for an incredible treat starting your day off at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera.  You'll have a chance to enjoy the beautiful views from the restaurant as well as the delicious food.  The best part, of course, is getting to see Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Daisy Duck who are celebrating the arts.  The costumes they are wearing are beyond adorable!  Please keep in mind that Mickey and his friends are so happy to see guests again, but they are practicing social distancing.  You'll still get to see them as they walk through the restaurant, and they'll even pose in the background for selfies. However, they aren't signing autographs or interacting with guests at this time.

    Currently, buses are running 45 minutes prior to the theme parks' opening times.  To get to Disney's Riviera Resort from Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa, you can take a bus to Disney's Hollywood Studios then transfer to the Disney Skyliner which has a stop at Disney's Riviera Resort.   My concern with this plan, however, is that it may take longer than expected.  For a faster and more direct option, it is easiest to take a taxi or ride-sharing program such as Uber or Lyft.  When we travel from resort to resort while at Walt Disney World, especially in the morning, we find this to be a great time-saving option.  

    Wishing you a magical trip!  Please let us know if we can help with any further questions. -Kara
