    Hi Moms ! Thanks for your continuing advice...can we take a taxi from AoA to arrive at MK at 7:45am for photo ops b4 our ADR at Crystal Palace at 8:30am ? Where is drop off, & how much time should we allow to actually get into the park ? Thx !

    Hi Jeanette!

    I have great news for you!
    There is no need to order up or pay for a taxi to get to Magic Kingdom - even in the early morning hours!
    Disney Transportation buses begin servicing the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels as early as 6:30am - with the specific task of getting Guests like you to early, breakfast reservations in the parks!

    Simply head on out to the Art of Animation bus stop at about 7:00/7:15am or so, and advise the Cast Member at the bus stop that you're headed to Magic Kingdom for a breakfast reservation at Crystal Palace. You'll be headed that way in a jiffy!

    You'll find it to be quite a breeze to get into the park at that hour, since the only guests entering will be those who, like you, have early breakfast reservations. Although you won't find any Disney PhotoPass Photographers out front of the Castle at that time, you'll be welcome to snap some photos on your own camera at the top of Main Street U.S.A. as you proceed over to Crystal Palace if you choose. Taking photos when the park is nearly empty is always such a treat! You'll find a great spot and alternate angle of the Castle over in front of Crystal Palace too. It's one of my favourite vantage points from which to snap (far too many) photos of the beautiful, Cinderella Castle!

    Thanks so much for visiting the Moms Panel with your great question. I'll hope you'll write me back soon as you think of more things you'd love to know before you leave!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World Jeanette!
