    We are visiting May/June 12 and we will be staying at the POR Riverside. We are scheduling an 8:00 am breakfast at Cinderella's table. Will we have problems using the bus to get there in time? We are not planning on renting a car. Thanks!

    Hi Becky!

    The official answer is "no, you should not have any problems".  Disney runs a bus early in the morning just for guests who have early morning Character Breakfasts.  However, the truth is I haven't been 100% successful in the past getting on such a bus.  Sometimes we have and sometimes we give up and hop in a taxi.  I think you should be prepared for both.  With a reservation at 8:00 am, I would recommend getting to the bus stop in front of Port Orleans Riverside by 7:15 am.  If you see a Cast Member out there, tell him or her you need to get to the Magic Kingdom for breakfast.  If there is no Cast Member out in front, talk to the bus driver of the first bus that arrives; he or she should be able to tell you if the special Character Dining bus is running.  Then if no bus arrives by 7:30 am, I would just hop in a taxi for the short trip to the Magic Kingdom.

    I hope this helps!  Write back if you have any more questions!
