    We have Tusker House breakfast reservations at 8:35 am. What time should we leave the Beach Club if we take the bus? What time should we leave beach club if we take a Minnie Van, and can we book that time in advance? Thanks!

    Hi Glenna,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How exciting to have an early morning breakfast reservation at Tusker House Restaurant!

    Since your reservation is so early, I suggest that you use the Minnie Van™ Service. Make sure to download the Lyft app when you arrive. I just came back from a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort and I received an automatic alert on my phone to download the app!

    I called 407-828-3500 to double-check the procedures. The staff person with whom I spoke indicated that you need to request your ride 5-10 minutes before you need to leave. To be safe, I would request it 15 minutes before you need to leave. Also, I suggest that you get to the park by 8:00 a.m. to be sure that you get through the security check point and have time to walk to the restaurant. Given this information, I recommend that you leave Disney's Beach Club Resort by 7:30 a.m.

    Glenna, Tusker House Restaurant is one of our favorite restaurants! The characters are so adorable. If you have not done so already, try booking a Rivers of Light Dining Package at Tusker House Restaurant. We did the dining package on our last visit and the reserved seating area was fantastic. There was no additional charge for the reserved seating access, but you do need to book the dining package to get vouchers for the show. 

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
