    Hello, my wife and I are visiting this Sept & have ADR for breakfast at each park before they open. How do we go about getting in early for breakfast. Also, is it better to take bus in the morning or drive to each and park.

    Hi Brian!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    With the exception of Disney's Animal Kingdom, it is better to drive to any early morning breakfast reservations.  That will be a lot less stressful, in my opinion, than waiting around wondering when a bus or some other form of Disney transportation will arrive to pick you up.  The only exception to that is if you are staying in a Magic Kingdom monorail resort; if you are, then take the monorail to any reservations in the Magic Kingdom!

    Disney's Animal Kingdom's parking lot generally does not open that much earlier than the park does which is why you shouldn't drive to Disney's Animal Kingdom for an early morning breakfast reservation.  Instead you should take Disney transportation.  The night before, I suggest stopping at the front desk of your Disney hotel lobby and asking them what your options are.

    Once you get to the park, one of the turnstiles will be open to let guests in who have an early morning breakfast reservation.  They should have your name on a list, but I recommend bringing your confirmation number with you just in case.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
