Transportation

Transportation to early morning character meals at Disney World

The only time we ever recommend breakfast is if it's before the parks open (if you eat any later, you end up eating during prime park touring time) but it's confusing to understand how to get to the dining reservations.

Although Disney will often tell you that transportation begins 1 hour before the parks open, there are earlier options for people with early dining reservations.

Here's what's available for early morning character meals at Disney World:

  • Buses for the Magic Kingdom and Magic Kingdom resort area start running at 6:30 a.m. daily
  • Buses for Animal Kingdom and Animal Kingdom Lodge start running at 7-7:15 a.m. daily
  • Buses for the Hollywood Studios and the Epcot-area resorts will start running at 7-7:15 a.m. daily
  • Buses for Epcot start running at 7-7:15 a.m. daily
  • The ferry from the Ticket and Transportation Center (TTC) to Magic Kingdom begins running 1 hour before Magic Kingdom opens
  • The express monorail (that goes from the TTC to MK) begins 30 minutes before MK opens
  • The resort monorail (which will go from TTC to The Polynesian to The Grand Floridian and then to MK) begins at 7 a.m.
  • The Epcot monorail usually begins operating at 8 a.m.
  • The boats that service the Epcot-area resorts and go to Epcot and Hollywood Studios start running at 8:30 a.m. daily

Transportation options for the rest of the day

If your character meal is a lunch or dinner you may not be starting from your resort. In that case, use the WDW Prep Navigator to help you figure out how to get there.

I really appreciate all of the info provided on this site! It has been so helpful to me while planning our family’s first trip! Our daughter is OBSESSED with Pooh and we have made reservations on her birthday in September at Crystal Place. Our ADR is for 9:05am. Will we still be able to get into the park early to insure we don’t miss our reservation? I am afraid if we don’t get in early we will miss this special breakfast. I am planning on ordering a cake and everything. What do you think? Also any thoughts on how early we should leave CBR to get there in time? Thank you so much!

Sara

My daughter loves Doc McStuffins, but we werent planning on visiting Hollywood Studios. Can we do a character breakfast at Hollywood & Vine without visiting the park? Then we could still see Doc, but visit Magic Kingdom after?

Amy

No, unfortunately park admission is required to dine at Hollywood & Vine.

Nicole D

Hi, I’m staying at an offsite hotel and I have a character dinner reserved at Crystal Palace. Do I need to get a Dining Plan also? Or just show up ahead of my reserved time with my reservation number and I’ll be fine? Disney’s whole dining setup is very confusing!

Wow. This is an impressive list. Mind if I post this on my Facebook page and include a link to it on my Website?

Will table service restaurants balk if I bring in outside food (cheese sticks, fruit, etc.) for my one-year-old? I know she can eat off of our plates, but I want to make sure I have some of her favorites available if I can. Thanks!

Olivia Stegall

I don’t know how to count! Planning to take the grandkids to WDW and scheduling buffet service character meals. Three adults plus the 5 year old for sure, but what about the 2 yo twins? Do I reserve for 6, to get a large enough table, even though only 4 are paying/have park tickets? (I have read that at buffets the under 3 guests eat off an adult’s plate.) Will we automatically have the 18% tip added? If we do a F! dining package with Minnie’s Seasonal Dine, how do we count the F! seat spaces?

Beth Bennett

Are the Paw Patrol characters anywhere in Disney World including character meals?

Jennifer Ramirez

No they won’t be; Paw Patrol is part of the nick jr franchise.

Jessi

Hi! We’ve got an ADR for 7:35 AM at Trattoria al Forno @ Disney’s Boardwalk for the character breakfast in October. We’re staying at AoA and we’re trying to figure out transportation. We really don’t want to drive. Will we be able to take Disney transportation to the boardwalk in time, or will we need to schedule an Uber? I’ve seen comments online that suggest you can get character meal transportation from AoA at 7 AM, but would we make it in time? Thanks!

Just curious if you found the best way to travel from AOA to Trattoria? As my family will be doing the same. Thanks

Natasha Villa-Gonzalez

We will be staying off-site but want to book an early breakfast at Cinderella’s royal table. Will we be able to enter early enough for the reservations before the park officially opens or will we not be able to because we are not able to use the extra magic hours?

Marcy Kay

You’ll be able to enter early even if staying offsite. You will simply show your reservation confirmation number. Make sure the time of your breakfast is shown also.

Paige

Approximately how long should it take to get from Pop Century to The Grand Floridian?

Lisa Buermann

Hi. We are going to Disney in September. I am trying to decide between dinner at Crystal Palace or Chef Mickey’s. It will be on an evening of Mickey’s Halloween Party, which we will not be attending. We are also planning dinners/lunches at 1900 Park Fare, Hollywood and Vine, Tusker House and Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. Thanks for your advice.

Callie

It depends on what you are looking for. If you go to the Crystal Palace, you’ll get a greater diversity of characters, seeing Pooh and friends. Chef Mickey’s has a similar line up as Tusker House. I really enjoy the ambiance of the Contemporary Resort, though, so I don’t think you’ll be disappointed on which ever one you choose. I think the food is about the same in both places in terms of quality.

Juliana

Which would you say is the best character meal for a 2 year old who is obsessed with Minnie and Mickey? We won’t have a meal plan and will be there in november.

Amelie Saladino

The Garden Grill is perfect. It was the easiest character meal we have done. (And we have been going once a year for many years) The characters are constantly making appearances, many times. And it’s cheaper than the others. We loved it, and so did our 2 year old.

Cathy

We are having a O Hana character breakfast at Polynesian then heading to Magic Kingdom for the day..do we park at Transportation Center then monorail over to Polynesian or can we park at Polynesian for meal and leave car after meal to go to MK? I doubt it but thought i would ask.
Cathy

April

Is there any where to see the marvel charters with a meal?

Amanda

Hello! How much time should I plan for character meals? We are doing chef Mickey for dinner, askershus for lunch, tusker house breakfast, crystal palace lunch, be our guest breakfast and cinderellas table for lunch(all on separate days obviously) but as far as planning fast passes I’m not sure how much time will be needed to eat and interact with characters, should I plan 2 hours?

Michelle

Thank you for all of this great info. I am planning our first Disney trip as a family (it has been 30yrs since I have been!) For July 2017. My kids are 5,13,14 & 18. My daughter (5) loves princesses but I am not sure her 3 big brothers would prefer to dine with them! Thinking Chef Mikey’s for an early breakfast on day one will be a good plan. What are the chances we will be able to satisfy the princess loving girl without doing another dining experience? Thanks so much!!

Shannon OKeefe

When we went with extended family, my 7 yr old daughter was the only girl (big brother and 6 boy cousins). So she and I scheduled a lunch at Cinderella’s castle with all the princesses while the rest of the family rode rides. It was a great mommy/daughter activity and allowed her to experience the magic of Disney princesses without boring the boys!

Jeremy

If you don’t want to dine with princesses (like in Akershus in Epcot) then I would say they are numerous places to meet princesses in the parks; especially Magic Kingdom and Epcot. She should be able to get her princess fix that way.

Tehyee

Hi,
If we stay off site can we still book character meals?
Also, are we still eligible for Fast Pass?

Amy

Yes, you can book character dinings but you cannot benefit from Extra Magic Hours unless you are staying at a Disney property.

Adrienne Roberts

Are there photographers at the character meals for the photo package?

BECKY

We are staying at the All Star Music Dec 10-16 and have reservations for breakfast at 8:30 at 1900 Park Fare. My mother has a scooter (does not break down) what is the best way to get there? Do we get a bus to MK then another to GF? or does the resort monarail start early for us to get from MK to GF?

We have been to WDW many times but not with a scooter.

Thanks for any help.

Bryan

More than likely the MK buses will begin running around 6:30am. I would be at the bus station for Magic Kingdom around 7am.
When you make it to the MK, you will have to take the resort monorail, it should be running by 7am as well, that should take
you to the grand floridian. Or you could take a cab, the hotel desk can help with this.

Lori Sorensen

Shannon-
We’re travelling the first week of November with my 10 yea old niece. It is her first Disney trip. Grammie would love to do a Character meal. We’re staying off-site. Can we go to any character meal, or do you need to be staying on property? Thank you in advance for your help!

Alexis

We’re also staying off-site in December and are hoping to do a character breakfast. Can you get into the park early when staying off-site? And if so, what is the best way to go about it? We were at Disney 2 years ago and came to the park 30-45 minutes early and had to take the ferry over but still didn’t make it in time for rope drop.

Angie

Good morning. I Have a question. I’m booking my 1st Disney vacation. The price range for the characters meals is that how much you have to spend per person to eat at the restaurant or will be charged.

Ashley

Good Evening! We are headed out in 9 days, this will be our second trip. Last time our early character breakfast was Chef Mickeys and the bus took us right to Contemporary. This time we have an 8:00 at Ohana’s, we are staying at Caribbean Beach. What is our best option? TIA!

kerry wicklund

We have a brekfast at Cinderella castle at 930..how early should we arrive?

Jamie

Love your site! So informative. We are going early november 2016, taking our 8yo daughter and 5 yo son. Our first day will be at MK, we have 10:20 reservations for Pirates League and then a 1:50 reservation at Chef Mickey. Is this enough time to get from PL to Chef Mickey? Are we going to be too rushed? We have other character meals planned during the trip to Tusker House, Hollywood & Vine and Crystal Palace on our last day that I’m considering cancelling Chef Mickey cause I’m worried it’s the wrong time of day to leave MK especially once I secure Fastpasses. Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks

Caroline Wilcox

You will have more then enough time too get too Chef Mickey its our favorite place to go!

Clay

More than enough time, you’ll be sitting around for awhile between that

Bev

We have 8am Garden Grill reservations. How long does the meal usually take? There are 6 of us traveling together, and we are hoping to be able to get on Soarin right after breakfast without FP+ (and then Test Track right after that). Want to save our Tier 1 FP+ for Frozen Ever After.

Sheridan

Hi there Shannon! I’m a little nervous about my first trip to Disney! You see, I’m 16 years of age and as my Mom suffered from several accidents and disease, we were never able to go. I know she wants to give me the best experience possible but I’m trying to do a little research of my own since I don’t want to be a burden and have her spend unnecessary money. Therefore, I’m trying to find the cheapest things to do while still doing the things I want to. I was a bit sad to find out there was not a Peter Pan charachter meal, as he’s definitely one of my all time favorites along with Mulan and Li Shang. However, having seen all the character meals, I’m thinking of perhaps the Crystal Palace, since my Mom and I both love Winnie the Pooh or Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, since I’d also really love to meet Prince Charming and that seems to be the only place he’s available. It seems like next to none of the males are available for character dining…would I be correct to assume that? Also, any information on where and more prominently which males are available to see in the park would be much appreciated. My Mom is intent on spoiling me and I just don’t want her to go crazy like I know she is. She feels horrible since she went as a child. And honestly, like I said, I’m SUPER nervous. My excrement has been directed at meeting the characters for as long as I can remember…but now…I feel like I’ll be a blushing quiet, little mess of a mouse and feel embarrassed talking to them. I’m really scared. I don’t want to dissapoint my Mom either. I don’t know…maybe I’m just being over-dramatic but the last thing I want to do is make a fool of myself and let all my Mom’s hard work go to waste. We’re probably going to go around January/February 2017. I know that this is probably the longest post ever ma’am and I humbly apologize for that. I’m just…God I don’t know why I’m so petrified of meeting these characters I’ve grown to love so much. Why am I about to cry right now? Maybe I’m scared of rejection or judgment since I’m older? I’m honestly not sure. Please, if you could help me with these issues I’d be greatly indebted to you madam. Thank you again. Have a wonderful evening.

Alicia

Sheridan, Honey, you are a peach. Seriously. You obviously love your mom tremendously. You’re so thoughtful and considerate. As a mom, we appreciate that more than you can ever know. Raising girls like you make us proud of the job we’ve done as mamas. We’re populating the world with good and kind-hearted young people.

At nearly 40, *I* still get the butterflies about meeting characters at both the parks and the meals. I’ve had a wonderful experience each and every time. They’re all so sweet to everyone they meet, regardless of age. Have no fear. They want to meet YOU as much as you want to meet them. So keep the butterflies in your stomach (the excitement and anticipation are part of the fun!) but enjoy yourself as well. Be silly and goofy with them. You’ll get some great photos and have some wonderful memories.

As for meals, if both you and mom like Winnie the Pooh and friends like you said, I highly recommend Crystal Palace. It’s my girl’s and my favorite character meal (Ohana breakfast with Lilo, Stitch, Mickey, and Pluto is a close second). The dinner at 1900 Park Fare was the very first thing we ever did at WDW, and that was a blast as well. Prince Charming should be there, and Lady Tremaine and the step-sisters are a hoot. You’ll enjoy that
one too.

I hope you and your mom have a fantastic and magical trip. And even though you’re worry, let your mom spoil you a little bit. We love to do it:)

Alejandra Garcia

Hi Shannon! Love your tips. First trip to WDW from Argentina in December.
I’ve made a 8:15 am breakfast reservation at Akershus. Do you think we will be able to ride frozen ever after first thing with little wait? Thank you for everything.

Vanessa Lovell

i booked this breakfast too. how was the wait after you left breakfast?

Caroline Wilcox

If you want to know my opinion I would do a Character Breakfast that is close too the Frozen ever after ride it would give you more time too eat and such!

Rebecca Fancher

Have you been to Goofy & Pals at the Four Seasons? I’m looking at that vs. Cape May. Thanks!

Caroline Wilcox

I haven’t done goofy pals at the Four seasons but have heard about it Goofy is really funny

Rebecca

Do any of the character breakfasts just use a quick service meal credit? Or do all require table service credit?

Allyssa

All character meals are at least 1 Table Service credit on the Disney Dining Plan. The closest Quick Service you’ll get is getting to eat in Beast’s Castle at Be Our Guest for breakfast or lunch, but the Beast will not be there at that time.

Do you have to prove you have a breakfast reservation to ride the early buses?

Patti Lingaur

How early can we catch a bus at the DVC Beach Club during the week of March 23-31, 2016?

hepburngal

Hi, Shannon! I am in the midst of planning our upcoming October trip. We have a seven year old girl who likes princesses, adventure and Star Wars and a two year old boy who loves anything his sister loves. I am trying to plan a character meal for each of them that would be enjoyable for both. What are your suggestions?

Cyndi

Hi what’s the best way to get to ohannas Polynesian Resort from ft wilderness? Also best ways to get to ohannas if staying off site? Can we drive there and is there a charge for parking?

Romo

Go to the Contempo, hop in the monoriel which will get you to the Poly in no time.

Tiernan Andrews

Hi Shannon,

We are headed to WDW after Easter. We have a 5:10pm reservation at 1900 Park Fare on a Monday. We will be spending the morning and early afternoon at HS. Any tips on how to get there? Would it be worth it to go from HS to MK for a little while and then take the Monorail to the GF? I heard on one of your podcasts that you could valet at a resort daily. Any idea on the price?

Thanks!

P.S. You have the best Podcast around! It’s so organized! I will be leaving an Itunes review.

KS

We are staying at the All-Star Movies resort and have a breakfast reservation at Chef Mickey’s on Friday for 7:15AM. How do we get transportation from our hotel to the Contemporary hotel for 7:15AM? Will this be a hassle? Should we try and get another reservation elsewhere?

sabrina flores

Ok… So we are coming to WDW in May. I am so excited because I am the only one who has ever been my husband and children have not. I have a DDP and have made several reservation already but i have a question or 2. I have a 7:35 breakfast with Chef Mickey the first day we will be touring the parks what is the best way to get their from the Caribbean resort ? also How many Character meals can we do on the dinning plan? and one more are all the buffet meals just one trip to the bar or can you take more then one trip Im rely confused on that one? Thank you so much I have gotten so much form this site that it has made my planning do much easier.

We are going to in FL May 21-26. We are getting a late start on planing. We do have 1 day park hopper passes, and plan on using them for Magic Kingdom on 5/24. I really want do a character meal for the kids. Our oldest daughter will be almost 8. I am not sure who she would be excited to see. She’s out of her princess stage, but I think she may like to see Minnie and Mickey. My middle guy will be almost 7. He adores Toy Story. I am not even sure if those characters are there. Our youngest will just have turned 2 the week before and she love Minnie, Mickey and Donald.
How do I even begin to pick the best place and time for them to see characters???

Sarah

Hi, I need help!

I have a breakfast reservation at Chef Mickeys for 9:40 on our first day at Disney. (We arrive day before, never been before.)

We have an e-ticket which we have to get verified, presumably at Magic Kingdom?

Do I travel to Magic Kingdom, get tickets verified then travel to Chef Mickeys? Or can we do the breakfast then sort tickets afterwards? Is it best to get the Monorail from Magic Kingdom to Chef Mickeys?

Sorry for all of the questions, I have no idea of what to expect!!

Thanks in advance

Robert

You do not need park tickets to dine at Chef Mickey’s in the Contemporary. You can head to Will Call at any park after breakfast if you wish to redeem your e-tickets for your park tickets.

The best way to travel to the Contemporary depends on where you are coming from. If you’re staying at another MK resort you can take the resort monorail. If you are staying at another non-MK Disney resort you can bus to MK then take the walkway to Contemporary which is right beside the bus terminal, it will be shorter than walking to the resort monorail then travelling one stop. If you are driving you will park at the TTC then you can take the resort monorail four stops (Poly, GF, MK, CR), or express monorail/ferry to MK then walk from there.

Hope that helps

Sarah

Hi, thank you so much for that.

We are driving in and thought, from your info, that we might park at Magic Kingdom, take the monorail to Contemporary, have breakfast, then get tickets validated and go to Magic Kingdom.

Please let me know if there is a flaw in this plan but if not, many thanks!

Robert

That will work just fine. Its often faster to take the express monorail from the TTC to MK then walk from there, instead of taking the resort monorail. But if persons in your party have mobility issues then the resort monorail will take you directly to Contemporary. Alternately you can take the ferry to MK then walk, for a more leisurely experience. Enjoy your trip!

Kimberly

Ok….so I’ve probably waited too long to take the kids to Disney World Disney World…wanted my youngest to be able to remember it. Then in 2013 I was hurt on the job which led to CRPS and a nuerostimulator being put in my back last Friday. Needless to say I believe any twisty turny rides are out for me. Yet I want to make this trip a dream vacation, especially with what we have endured in the last 2.5 years. I would like to do a character dining. However, my 5 year old is not so much into Mickey Mouse club house anymore. Not saying that to be rude he’s just more into the starwars, cars, lego theme. My other son is into pirate if t Caribbean, history, wars, and Once. Upon A Time Rumplestilsk are there any Character Dining experiences that my boys would enjoy? Most I seem to find are for girls, or small children.

Christa

And I forgot, there have been Star Wars character meals at Sci-Fi during Star Wars Weekends

Christa

Maybe they would be interested in the character dining that has the classic characters like Mickey. I have seen jaded teenagers gush when they see them, something about the Disney magic. There aren’t any character meals that focuses on Star Wars or Pirates, although there are quite a few special events. The Pirates League is where your kids can get made up into a pirate and participate in a parade. There is also a Pirates & Pals Fireworks Cruise (that the whole family can go on) and a Pirates Adventure Cruise (that is for kids only).

Tracy

Lots of great tips on your posts! Thank you! Just wanted to let you know that the resort monorail did not begin running till 8:30 am several mornings when we visited Dec. 10-18, 2015. We had planned to use the resort monorail from the Polynesian to get to the MK for an early morning BOG and CRT reservation, but it was not running. Fortunately, we were able to catch a boat both days, and even though we were late, we were accommodated. For our EPCOT early morning breakfast at Askerhaus, we just used our rental car to avoid any issues.

Jen

Thanks for this list! Great overview, well organized- I was feeling a little overwhelmed & under-informed with the Disney explanations in the app.

Allison Page

Hey can you give me or email me a list of character breakfast that does breakfast and dinner. We are staying April 3-8 and have the dining pass and trying to figure out so we dont do all character breakfast which is the sit down meal or table service. I would like alternate them

Denise

I just booked a late breakfast at 1900 Park Fare. It says on the Disney site that the breakfast is until 11:50. Is that the time they close the buffet down or is that the time they have the last seating? I want to make sure we have time to graze and meet the characters. Thanks!

Lynn

You forgot about the Seafood Sensation Buffet at the Garden Grove Swan/Dolphin Hotel. It features Chip, Dale, Goofy and Pluto. It is not on the dining plan but the price is great – about $33 for adults and $17 for kids. It includes crab legs and half a lobster for each adult. We went the day after Thanksgiving 2015 and it was great!

SueEllen Thomas

We went to the Swan Resort several years ago to have dinner with Goofy ( and Pluto) and had a great time. We had reservations but didn’t really need them. It was not crowded and the characters stopped by our table several times.

Jaime

This list needs an update with. Minnie’s new seasonal character meal at Hollywood and Vine.

Michelle S.

We are staying at the All Star Sports resort and had planned a breakfast reservation at Chef Mickey’s at 7:30 am. Will it be possible to get there on the Disney bus?

Melani

I’m coming from the Magic Kingdom to go to 1900 Park Fare in the Grand Floridian for dinner at 5:20pm. What time do you suggest we start heading out of the park to make our reservation if traveling by monorail?

Steffyhat

Love all the info here. Great job!!

I have until December to plan our meals. The only one we know for sure so far is Cinderella’s royal table one evening after a trip to the bippity boppity boutique.

This our 1st trip. We will be there for 2 weeks but are staying offsite at the embassy suites so I don’t know how that will affect dining yet. We have an 8yr old girl and a 12yr old boy.

I would like to know if we need to be reserving breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day or will we be ok just reserving that one important dinner for our daughter and doing the rest on the fly?

Meghan

You only need reservations for table service meals. We went last June and only made one dinner reservation. The rest of our meals we ate quick service. Except for breakfast our first day, which was at Boma and we were able to get seated quickly without a reservation.

Cheryl

We ate at Cinderella’s castle, and it was the WORST meal of the entire vacation. We took our granddaughter and when we made the reservations, we asked if they could accommodate my granddaughter, who is a vegetarian. The staff assured us her needs would be accommodated. The options…a small frozen pizza or pasta with butter! What a rip-off!

Meli

i would definitely reserve at least one meal per day. The restaurants get VERY crowded and even with reservations you can end up waiting 30 minutes or so. We reserved a later dinner each evening, and just grabbed lunch wherever we could. This worked for us because it gave us an opportunity to wind down after a crazy day without stressing over what restaurant we would be able to get into.

Also, we used Uber a couple times rather than the Disney busses (we stayed on site). They arrived quickly, the vehicles were spotless, the drivers were polite, friendly, and knew where they were going. The rates were also very reasonable. I don’t think we paid a fare over $15. This is a serious option for getting around.

Michelle

If we eat dinner at Tusker House in the AK, how do you suggest we get back to our hotel (the Polynesian) since the park will be closed by the time we are done eating? Thanks!

Mel

Hi we are planning on taking our kids to Akershus for dinner. Is the charachter dining all day there or just in the morning?

Rachael R

we just went for dinner in Mid October, the beef dish(cant recall the name ) was some of the best beef I’ve ever eaten, My son LOVED Snow White….was a great experience:)

Amber Smith

When we went for lunch we met about 5-6 princesses in the Norwegian restaurant. I’m fairly adventurous eater but I definitely ended up using snack credits soon after, as I wasn’t that thrilled with the food selection. But if you don’t want to spend half your day in line over 5-6 MAJOR princesses, this is a great option. Just got to determine what’s more important for you and your group.

But anyway, I assume they also have the princesses in the evening as well, in case you’re wanting to do dinner.
