    We are staying at the AOA resort and we have alot of Character Breakfasts. I was wondering what time the shuttle buses start and what time should we leave the resort to go to the parks?

    Hi Samantha:

    The general buses start running to the Parks about an hour prior to Park opening.  And special buses to the Parks start running even earlier for Guests who have early morning character breakfast reservations at restaurants inside the Parks and close by Resorts. These buses are unofficially referred to as "breakfast buses." These early-morning breakfast buses begin to run from Resorts as early as 6:30 or 6:45.  I would allow at least 45 minutes for transportation, including waiting time for the bus.  When you check in your Resort, I would confirm with the Cast Member that early morning buses to the Parks will be running for you to catch your character breakfasts. 

    Of course, if you want to guarantee that you will be at the restaurant on time or are like me and want the extra minutes of sleep, you can take a taxi. Taxis are generally waiting outside Resorts, or your Resort concierge can help you arrange one.

    Enjoy your vacation.
