    Taking husband and son to WDW for their first time in late November for my son's 7th birthday! We are staying at the AOA resort and on my son's birthday we booked a 9:10 am breakfast at Hollywood Studios. How early should we plan to leave the resort?

    We celebrated my oldest daughter's seventh birthday at Walt Disney World, Jennifer.  It was the best celebration and I'm sure yours will be, too!  For starters, you've chosen a great resort.  Disney's Art of Animation is so colorful and whimsical; I know my six-year-old would love to stay there.  And a character breakfast is always a great way to start the day.  In order to arrive to yours in a timely manner, I would suggest leaving the Art of Animation by 8:00 in the morning.  That should allow you plenty of time to arrive at the park and make it through the turnstiles.

    And, Jennifer, please pass along the happiest birthday wishes to your son from the Disney Moms!
