I have an 8:05 a.m. breakfast reservation at a resort. How do I get there?

Ever wonder how to get to an early morning (before the parks open) breakfast?

The easiest and fastest way is going to be driving or using a taxi or Uber or Minnie Van.

This is especially true if you’re going to an early morning reservation at a resort. Hands down.

But, if those aren’t options for you, you can still get there via Disney transportation.

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 dining 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
