    Thanks for all your help! We are planning to dine at Boma (so excited!) but we don't know how to get there from POFQ. The reservation is at 8:15 am, AK doesn't open until 9:00 am, how can we get to the AKL if the buses to the AK aren't running yet? Tkx!


    The "normal" buses don't start operating until one hour before the parks open, but the "character/breakfast meal" buses start even earlier. If you are asking a Cast Member about bus timing, be sure to ask about the "early character/breakfast meal bus", or otherwise they may not provide the appropriate information for you.

    Character/breakfast meal buses for the Animal Kingdom area will start running at approximately 7:00-7:15am, daily, and should go to BOTH the Animal Kingdom Park and the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Even though you aren't going to a "character" meal, you should still be able to use this early bus service for your early breakfast. Be sure to tell your bus driver that you need to go to the Animal Kingdom Lodge, and he should be able to take you directly there, or take you there after stopping at the Animal Kingdom park.

    By the way, the early character/breakfast buses also start running at 7:00-7:15 am to go to the Epcot and Hollywood Studios areas.  The early character/breakfast bus to the Magic Kingdom area starts as early as 6:30 am, daily.
