    Hello. For my trip I have reserved 3 early morning breakfast reservations at 8am. Will the Disney buses be running early enough to get me to the parks in time? Thank you.

    Hi Brittany!

    Thanks for your question. Walt Disney World Bus Service buses run approximately 45 minutes before the park opens. On select days, a theme park will have Extra Magic Hours, where a park will open 1 hour earlier or stay open later on select days. For example, the Magic Kingdom typically opens at 9:00AM, However, if it is a morning Extra Magic Hours day, the theme park will open an hour earlier (8:00AM-9:00AM). If the day of your reservation(s) falls on a morning Extra Magic Hours for a theme park, then the buses for, say, the Magic Kingdom on that particular day will begin running at 7:15AM. We've had early morning dining reservations at Cinderella's Royal Table at Magic Kingdom while staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom, and was able to get there (via bus) on-time on an Extra Magic Hours day.

    Also, if traveling between September 1 to November 2, 2019, Disney World will be offering extra, Extra Magic Hours, with some park openings at 7AM (ex: Magic Kingdom) or 6AM (ex: Hollywood Studios) on select days.

    Be sure to check your dining reservations with the theme park hours for those days to ensure you can take advantage of these benefits!
