    Hi there - we’ll be visiting WDW in September, staying at The Contemporary Resort. One morning, we have breakfast reservations at Toppolino’s Terrace. With Minnie Van service termporarily paused, what is the quickest and most efficient way to get there?

    Hi Chris,

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney! I am delighted to discuss transportation options with you!

    Although Disney Minnie Van™ Service Connected by Lyft is currently paused, you have a few options for getting to that breakfast reservation at Topolino's Terrace - Flavor's of the Riviera. You could walk to Magic Kingdom from Disney's Contemporary Resort and take bus transportation to Disney's Riviera Resort, where Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera is located. When we have stayed at Disney's Contemporary Resort, that walk to Magic Kingdom has taken us less than 10 minutes. Once you get to the bus drop-off area, just find the bus area for Disney's Riviera Resort!

    Since my family is not always the swiftest in the mornings, we often use ride share service like Lyft or Uber to get to early morning breakfast reservations at other resorts. Prior to each trip, I search for any discounts being offered with those ride share services and then I make sure I have the apps still downloaded on my cell phone. Although the ride share service might be faster, walking to Magic Kingdom and then catching the bus from there is FREE.

    As you make your decision, consider the time of the reservation. Our experience with buses has been that they take more time to navigate than a ride share service. So, your choice may depend on how early your dining reservation is. To be on the safe side, when our reservations are before 9:00 a.m., we use a ride share service.

    Chris, sending pixie dust your way as you consider your transportation options. The good news is that you will be at the Walt Disney World Resort soon! Remember to check the operational updates as policies and procedures could change. And be sure to have those Disney Park Pass reservations for the dates of your visit. When you get to Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera, say high to Donald for us. On our last visit, he gave my husband the evil eye for chatting with Daisy. It was a funny site to behold!

    Magic and memories,
