    What times do the Disney buses start from All-Star Movie resort to park? I have breakfast res at Cinderella Castle at 8:10am and the park doesn't open until 9am on that day. I would also have to leave at least by 7am the latest

    Hey, Adam!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Starting your day by joining Disney royalty for breakfast sounds "practically perfect in every way."

    For early dining reservations, buses begin running earlier than 45 minutes before theme park opening. Please check with the concierge at Disney's All-Star Movies Resort hotel for a definitive time the night before your reservation. We have used Walt Disney World Bus Service many times to make early dining reservations at Magic Kingdom Park and you need not worry. 

    It should take about 60 minutes to get from your hotel room door at Disney's All-Star Movies Resort to the entrance of the Cinderella Castle.

    When you arrive at Magic Kingdom Park before the theme park officially opens, look for Cast Members on the left side of the main gate with signs for “early dining reservations and tours." You will need to check in with them. They will look for your name on a list before allowing you inside the park. I suggest you print off a copy of your reservation or make a screenshot and carry it with you in case your name is not on the list.

    Disney Dad Tip: If you finish early, see if you can get in line for popular attractions like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train or get some great photos before the rest of the Guests are allowed inside.

    Bon appetite!

    Adam, enjoy making and eating many Magical Memories!
