    Visiting WDW for the first time in March 2020, we are staying at CSR. On our first day (Wednesday March 4th) we have a reservation at BBB before the park opens at 8:40, my question is what is the best transportation option to make sure we make it on time?

    Hi Erin!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am SO excited to see that you are planning your first trip to Walt Disney World Resort!  There is so much to see and enjoy, and I know it can be a little overwhelming.  Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is a really fun experience for our little princesses, especially as you are booked at the boutique located by Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park - so much magic here!   I've checked the park hours for the date of your visit, and Magic Kingdom Park opens at 9.00am that day.  Disney Bus Transport will begin operating from Disney's Coronado Springs Resort around 45 minutes before park opening, but that will not allow you enough time to travel to the park, clear security bag check and walk to Cinderella Castle.  I would recommend using Disney's Minnie Van Service for an efficient and very magical start to your day.   These vans will accommodate up to 6 Guests (including two child seats if you need them), and are driven by friendly and knowledgeable Disney Cast Members for the best door-to-door service.  You can order them by using the Lyft app on your smart phone, which will also display the cost of using this service.  I would allow at least 60 minutes, and when you arrive at the entrance to Magic Kingdom Park, look out for the sign for 'Guests with early reservations'.  

    You could also visit the Front Desk of your Resort hotel and ask them to call you a taxi cab, but please allow extra time for this as they may not be a taxi readily waiting outside.  Also, it is worth noting that the only cars permitted to take you to the entrance of Magic Kingdom Park are the Minnie Vans.  All other cars can only take you as close as the Transportation and Ticket Center, from where you will then have to board the monorail or the ferryboat to take you to the park entrance.

    For more planning tips please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel Video Library where our panelists have given their favourite hints and advice to make your planning as easy as possible, and do come back and visit us here with any questions you may have.  We will be very happy to help you!
