    I have booked reservations for breakfast at Be Our Guest. MK doesn't open until 9am and our reservation is at 8:10am. We are staying at Pop Century, will the shuttle service be operational before that for us to get there in time? Thank you for your time

    Hi, Hannah! Thanks for stopping by with your question. Breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant is a great way to start your day at Magic Kingdom Park. I recently enjoyed a pre-park opening breakfast there with my daughter, so I have a few helpful tips for you.

    You will definitely have plenty of time to make your 8:10 a.m. Advance Dining Reservation by using Disney bus transportation. The regular bus hours are listed as beginning one hour prior to park opening. However, Disney does understand that Guests need earlier transportation to the many bright and early breakfast meals offered at the parks. In my experience, I have hopped on one of these buses at our Resort hotel as early as 6:45 a.m. During our recent trip, my daughter and I walked up to the bus stop at 7:10 a.m. and had just missed a bus to Magic Kingdom Park. Another one did not come by until around 7:35 a.m., making me a little nervous! No worries, though. We still had plenty of time to make our Advanced Dining Reservation. When you arrive at the park, Hannah, just head to the far left Mickey touchpoints, which should be marked as a point of admission for those with breakfast reservations. Be sure to have your confirmation number handy, just in case.

    I have a magical tip for you if you love mining for gems with seven dwarfs. Breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant goes very quickly, especially if you preordered your meal on My Disney Experience, which you will be allowed to do around one month prior to your reservation. My daughter and I headed out of the Beast's Castle around 8:40 a.m. and were allowed to line up near Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Once the park opened, the Cast Member there escorted us right to the attraction so that we were among the first to ride it for the day!

    I hope you have a wonderful day at Magic Kingdom. Pop by again if you think of any other questions as you continue to plan your trip.
