    We have 8:15am reservations at AK. We're staying off property near downtown Disney area & traveling by car. Is it true the gates only open for resort busses at AK before the open? How else can we get to breakfast before open?

    Hi Yorel,

    Early morning Advance Dining Reservations are always a bit concerning for guests. This is especially true for those who do not have a car and are relying on Disney's Transportation system. 

    You will be able to make your breakfast reservation. The gates will be open because Disney realizes that not every guest will be traveling via their transportation system to get to a meal.

    I would arrive by 7:45 am to Animal Kingdom to allow enough time to park and walk to your restaurant.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
