    What times does the transportation run? We're staying at Art of Anim and trying to plan for character dinings. What's estimated time for bus to get to MK? I don't want to book anything too early/ late and not get to use the bus system. Love this panel! TY

    Hi, Jenny! Thanks so much for stopping by with your question. You will definitely be able to utilize Disney Transportation buses to make an early morning breakfast or late dinner at any of the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. The buses to the theme parks do not begin regular operation until an hour before park opening, but Disney does understand that many Guests require transportation earlier than this. My experience is that buses generally start picking up Guests from the Resorts as early as 6:45 a.m. for early theme park breakfast reservations. My family is quite fond of these early breakfasts so we can visit with our favorite Disney pals before climbing aboard a doombuggy, mine car, or magic carpet. I usually get everyone out to the bus stop around 7 a.m. for an early breakfast in the parks, which usually begin no earlier than 8:00 a.m. If you arrive at the bus stop at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort and do not see a bus to your theme park within 10-15 minutes, simply let a Concierge or Front Desk Cast Member in the Resort know that you are needing to get to your breakfast reservation. They will happily alert the bus drivers for you.

    In the evening, Disney bus transportation at each theme park continues for at least one hour after the theme park closes. Dinner at Tusker House Restaurant in Disney's Animal Kingdom Park is one of our daughters' favorite character dining experiences. If you do secure an Advance Dining Reservation around the same time that the park closes, rest assured that you will find Disney transportation available after your meal for the ride back to your Resort hotel.

    I hope you have a magical day, Jenny. Please let us know if you have any further questions as you continue to plan your vacation.
