    August trip-What's the best way to get to early ADRs from BayLake(Akershus@8:05, Tusker@8:15 &Crystal@8:15), how much travel time, & time to eat should we allow (for future FastPass+ planning)? Thanks so much for your answers and help in planning!!

    Hi Katherine Ashley! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Disney transportation is available a minimum of 45 minutes before the first available seating in the morning and it's suggested to give yourself at least that much time for travel. From Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort, you'll have no trouble getting to your advanced dining reservations for breakfast.

    For Akershus Royal Banquet Hall at Epcot, take the monorail from the 4th floor of the Contemporary Resort and transfer to the Epcot Monorail line at the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC). 

    For your reservation at Tusker House Restaurant take the bus from your resort to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. It’s about a 25-minute bus ride from Bay Lake at Disney's Contemporary Resort to Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park so be sure to give yourself at least 45 minutes lead time.

    Finally for the Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom Park simply hop on the monorail for a quick and comfortable ride! If you're up for an early morning stroll you'll get there in less than 10 minutes from Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort.

    With respect to your FastPass+ planning give yourself at least an hour for comfortable dining plus 15 minutes to get to your attractions...the last thing you want to do first thing in the morning is eat and run!

    I hope that helps answer your question. Wishing you a magical and memorable Disney vacation.
