    What time to buses start running. Looking to book breakfast at other resorts (we’re staying at pop) but not sure if we can make it on time for resorts that are near Magic kingdom.

    I’m delighted to welcome you back to planDisney, Dave!

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just around the corner, and I hope you’re as excited as I am for you to embark on all the magical adventures! Speaking of magical adventures, I’m elated to learn you’re staying at Disney’s Pop Century Resort! My panelist pals and I have a tradition of visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth annually, and we always choose to stay at Disney's Pop Century Resort. We enjoy the larger-than-life decor, and we especially love the ease of getting to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios via the Disney Skyliner! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

    Dave, in my experience, Disney transportation, including the Walt Disney World Bus Service, begins running about an hour before theme park opening. When I have an early morning dining reservation, I like to get to the transportation a few minutes before the operating hours begin to ensure I'm on the first bus provided. However, if your reservation is earlier than that and you don’t want to cut it too close, you’re also welcome to head to the front desk at your Resort hotel to ask what your best options are. 

    Although it’s not complimentary, another option would be to use a ride-share service. When we’re feeling a bit fancy, my family and I love the Minnie Van™ Connected by Lyft service. The Cast Members driving are an absolute joy, and nothing beats getting picked up in a polka-dotted vehicle! 

    Wishing you an enchanting visit, Dave!
