    Hi Moms, We have booked 4 early morning character breakfasts, between 8 am and 8:25 am. We are staying at Port Orleans Riverside. Will the magical express be running early enough to get us there in time?

    Hi, Alyson!

    Disney transportation begins very early in the morning to accommodate guests with early breakfast reservations.  Plan about an hour to get where you need to be.  If you find you are running late, you can always hire a taxi at the entrance to your resort.  For a small fare, you can get door to door service to resorts in much less time.  This works especially well if you are planning to have breakfast at Cape May Cafe at the Beach Club which is a bit more difficult to get to. 

    If you are dining at 'Ohana, Chef Mickey's, or other restaurant near the Magic Kingdom, take the bus to the Magic Kingdom then hop on the Resort Monorail which will stop at Contemporary, Polynesian, and the Grand Floridian.

    For a location inside a theme park, just head to your resort's bus stop and wait for that park's bus.  If you have any transportation concerns, stop by the front desk to speak to the resort concierge about your dining plans and the best modes of transportation. 

    If you would like to check routes and travel times before you leave home, head to and use their Transportation Wizard.  Select Point A and Point B and the Wizard will give you some possible routes and approximate travel times. 

    Have a great stay at Riverside and enjoy your early morning breakfasts with your favorite Disney Pals!
