    We are visiting DW in October and staying at AoA. Is there a way to get to Beach Club Resort for a breakfast reservation at 7:30 on Oct. 15 or is that prior to transportation start up? It says Epcot has magic hours starting at 8am.

    Hi Lisa! Unfortunately getting from resort to resort for early morning dining reservations is probably the trickiest part of your Disney vacation.

    There is an early morning bus that assists guests that need to be at a resort but generally this takes them usually to the Magic Kingdom area. Even with an early morning bus I strongly suggest to guests that they bite the bullet and get a taxi so there is no stress and they can let the children sleep as long as possible. It will be a short ride from the Art of Animation resort to the Beach Club resort so it shouldn't cost more then $15.

    You wouldn't be able to take advantage of the early morning hours at Epcot since even though a bus would get you to the park by 7:30 you can't walk through the gates until it opens at 8am.  Once you enter it is a good 20 minute walk through Future World and the World Showcase to exit out of the International Gateway to walk to the Beach Club. Your best bet is truly to get a cab. Your resort can assist you in calling and you might need to wait about ten minutes so plan accordingly.

    Enjoy your Cape May character breakfast. We like this one as it tends to be a little less frantic then so many of the others. And of course we love the food that is offered. To return to your resort after the breakfast you can either walk through Epcot to reach the buses or better yet hop on the boat to Hollywood Studios and catch your bus from there.
