    We will be staying at the All Star Music on 5-19-10. We have 8:30 breakfast reservations at Donald's at AK. Will the buses be leaving early enough for us to make our reservation?

    Hello Joanna and no worries!  First, thank you for visiting us here at the Moms Panel.  I looked up the park hours for Disney's Animal Kingdom and noticed that the park opens to the public at 9:00 a.m. on the 19th of May.   Of course, you and your family will be able to enter the park earlier in order to make your scheduled reservation. Disney buses begin running about 1 hours prior to a park's scheduled opening.   So, you should be able to board a bus by 8:00 a.m.  
    Now, Disney also has buses exclusively for early morning dining reservations.  If you feel that 8:00 a.m. would be really cutting it close, you can also rush out to the bus area much earlier and look for the buses which will be displaying  "Character Dining" or "Special Event".  Just let the Cast Member (bus driver) know where you need to go.  The earliest I have boarded these buses was at 6:45 a.m. to catch a 7:15 a.m. dining reservation. I was last told that these special event buses begin running between 6:30 a.m. and 6:45 a.m. daily.   I always recommend asking the front desk for clarification a day prior to your set reservation.  It always eases my mind hearing it come from a Cast Member.  

    Come back and visit us again should any other questions be on your mind.  We want for you and your family to have a magical time here at the Walt Disney World Resort.
