    Kimberly from OH Asked

    Visiting Art of Animation in June. Want to make breakfast reservations in park restaurants. If I have an 8:30 a.m. reservation, do buses from AA leave in time even though the parks may not open until 9? Can I enter parks before they open w/ reservation?

    Hi Kimberly:

    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.  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.

    When you get to the Park, simply head to the designated park entrance turnstile open for guests with early breakfast reservations. To help you find your way, look for a sign that says "Breakfast Entrance" or "Character Breakfast" (or something similar). This turnstile usually is on one of the far ends of the turnstile row. If you don't spot the special breakfast entrance right away, simply ask a Cast Member to point you in the right direction. A Cast Member at the breakfast entrance will take your name to confirm that you have a reservation and will admit you to the park with your park ticket. I would carry your breakfast reservation confirmation number just in case.

    Enjoy your vacation.
