    Our Family will be staying at Pop Century this May. We have an 8:10 A.M. reservation at 1900 Park Fare and were planning to take the monorail to the MK after breakfast. What is the best way to go about transportation to the Grand Floridian?

    Hey Madeline-

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Anytime you want to travel between resorts and cannot walk there you have a few of options. First, Disney bus transportation is a complimentary service and an excellent way to get between places at Walt Disney World Resort. For your trip you will need to transfer at Downtown Disney Marketplace or at one of the theme parks to get to Disney’s Grand Floridian for breakfast. The,e parks are always faster. Second, Disney Water transportation will take you between resorts as well and being a nifty way to travel. The monorail of course will connect you to those resorts on the Magic Kingdom Area monorail line. Third, is to drive or take a taxi.

    Since your reservation is so early and buses typically begin running one hour before the theme parks open, I would recommend diving your car or catching a taxi around 7:40 a.m. to make your 8:10 a.m. reservation. The taxi is a direct route and will only cost you around $15-$20 when going between Disney’s Pop Century and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resorts. Driving eliminates the possibility of long waits for buses and transfers to other buses or modes of transportation that are complimentary. The concierge at Disney’s Pop Century Resort may help you catch a taxi which is typically waiting just outside of the registration building know as Classic Hall.

    1900 Park Fare Supercalifragilistic Breakfast was one of the best character experiences. My kids played with the Mad Hatter for 5 minutes asking him questions including what the 10/6 on his hat meant. He was as goofy in person as he is on film. They also met Alice in Wonderland and Mary Poppins. Currently, these Disney friends are joined by Winnie-the-Pooh and Tigger but that could change anytime.

    Oh, 10/6 stands for how much the hat costs in British money:10 shillings and 6 pence.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
