    We are staying at the Villas at Wilderness Lodge and have a 8:10 am reservation for the Princess Breakfast at Askerhaus with our 3 year old. What is best way to get there on time? We will have a rental car, but plan to go to another park after breakfast.

    Hi Maya!  Great question!  You and your family are going to enjoy the Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall.  This is one of my favorite places.  Transportation will not be a problem.  The buses usually start running between 6:30 a.m. and 6:45 a.m. for those guests with early morning reservations.  Of course, you will not need to be waiting this early since your reservation is at 8:10.  I would start walking to the bus stop at 7:25 because I am one thats likes to be early rather than have that feeling if I am going to make it on time.  My husband thinks I am crazy when I make the family do this.  Just look for the buses which will say "Character Dining"  or "Character".  Let the cast member (bus driver) know where your reservation is set and he/she will take you to your destination.  I always confirm that buses will be running for early morning reservations at the front desk just for peace of mind.

    Since I am not sure on what date your reservation is set, I was not able to look up the time that Epcot will be opening that day.   The general rule is that buses start running one hour prior to a park's scheduled opening.  So, if you find that Epcot is scheduled for an 8:00 a.m. opening, the buses will begin picking up at 7:00 a.m.  In this case, just wait at the Epcot bus stop.  

    Have fun and may your stay at the Walt Disney World Resort be magical!
