    We are taking our sons for their first trip to Disney in just over a week! We have breakfast reservations at Chef Mickey's at 7:45am, and we are staying at Pop Century. Will the buses be running at that time to get us to our reservation?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kelly! How exciting you'll be immersed in the magic a week from now! Your little ones must be so thrilled! 

    You have done well. Chef Mickey's is by far my favorite character meal and apparently, everyone else's since it is usually very difficult to find an available reservation even 180 days out!

    Disney's complimentary buses start operating 45 minutes before park opening and do so in 20 min intervals approximately. We usually advise guests to allow one hour when traveling from one location to another within the Walt Disney World Resort; in your case, since you will be going from Disney's Pop Century to Disney's Contemporary Resort, it is even more advisable to consider other transportation options. 

    One stress-free way to make sure you get to your reservation is by using a taxi app or asking Concierge to help you get one. However, did you know Disney has its own private, taxi service now? Let me introduce to you the Minnie Van Service, which works with the Lyft app. Minnie Vans are roomy and can accommodate up to 6 guests. They also come equipped with 2 versatile car seats, should you need them, at no additional cost. To use it, you will need to have the app downloaded on your phone. Once you open the app from your Disney Resort location, it'll prompt you to select where you are going. You can simply follow the steps just like you would on any other taxi app and since it is connected to your credit card, you do not even need to worry about having cash available. 

    I would personally advise you to avoid the stress by choosing to use this extra comfortable and convenient service. I am sure your children would love to arrive at their breakfast location in one of these extra adorable polka dotted-themed vehicles. 

    Kelly, I hope you've found this answer helpful. If you have any more questions, please stop by again soon! 

    Have a fabulous trip!

Meet the Panelist: Desiree, Peru

Hi! I'm Desiree from Lima, Peru. My family will never ever tire of visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth, even if means traveling almost 3,000 miles to do so! My husband and I love to watch the fireworks with our kids, but the best magic happens when the grandparents come along and we all feel the same age in front of Cinderella Castle! I love giving tips about different types of resorts and traveling with multigenerational groups.
