    What time does transportation start running? We have reservations 1 hour before the park opens. I read that transportation starts 1 hour prior to park opening including magic hours. But the park we are going to doesn't have magic hours that day.

    Hiya Jennifer!

    Thank you so much for stopping by!  You are correct!  Bus transportation to the parks typically starts about 1 hour prior to park opening.  

    They do run buses even earlier, around 6:45 AM to 7 AM time range that are labeled "Character Breakfast," "Dining," etc.  You'll need to be at the bus stop early to catch these buses.  It's also best to ask the front desk about what time the "breakfast bus" will be at your resort on your early breakfast reservation days.  They usually have a good idea of what time it will arrive.   Another great option could be the NEW Minnie Van service that began rolling out a few days ago!  You can read a bit about it on the Disney Parks Blog as they highlight the Minnie Van Service.  It could be a quick option to get you to your breakfast quickly and in STYLE!  

    Have a magical vacation and thank you again for stopping by!
