    Regarding the Disney bus transportation, I see where buses starting running 45 minutes prior to park opening. What do you do if you have a character breakfast at 8:00, and the park doesn't open until 9:00?

    Hey Tonimarie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You are correct that the Complimentary Resort Transportation begins running approximately 45 minutes prior to park opening. I know how tricky it can be trying to time all of your dining reservations to coincide with Theme Park opening and the Disney Transportation System.

    I have two suggestions for you. One is to possibly see if you are able to move your dining reservation to be just a bit later. If that is not a good option or you are unable to move your dining reservation, I would suggest taking a cab to your character breakfast. Whenever I find myself in this situation, I always approach the Concierge Desk at my resort hotel and they are happy to help me find a reputable cab company! Please note that taking a cab will be of additional cost to you.

    I hope that I have helped to answer your question. Please feel free to stop back with any additional vacation planning questions that you may have. We love helping guests just like you!

    Have a magical time!
