    Stacey from LA Asked

    I have made a 9 am reservation at BBB in Downtown Disney. we are staying at the Pop Century. Will there be buses to get us downtown that early? Where exactly is the BBB downtown? Also will we make a 10:45 princess breakfast in EP afterwards?

    Hi there, Stacey!

    Buses will start running to Downtown Disney at approximately 8:30 AM. You're looking at stopping at Typhoon Lagoon along the way as well, which will add on some time. And the walk from the central bus stop to World of Disney (home of the Bibbidi Bobbdi Boutique) will be a few minutes' walk.

    Consider having a cab on standby to ease your concern about being on time. Your concierge or bell services can arrange for one to be awaiting you in the morning; you can make your arrangements the night before or very early on the morning of your appointment.

    The Fairy Godmothers In Training ask that you allot at least an hour for the transformation to take place. Depending upon the package that is chosen, the time it takes for the hairdo, etc., the tie could be more or less.

    Disney advises at least an hour to travel between destinations prior to a dining reservation, so a 10:45 AM might be cutting it close (consider, too, the time it will take to get from Downtown Disney to Epcot, and the walk back from Future World to Norway in World Showcase). While a cab might be helpful in this case, consider calling (407) WDW-DINE to see if there is a way of pushing back your reservation. Not only would you not want to rush the fun at the Boutique, but you certainly would not want to risk (a) losing out on your meal with the Princesses; and (b) being assessed the cancellation fee.

    While I hate to be the bearer of not-the-best news, I'd rather see you push back the time of your meal than fall into a situation where your travel party is rushing and stressed out. Disney is all about family, fun, and taking time to enjoy one another in the most magical place on earth!

    See you later, celebrator,
