Early Morning Breakfast - Transportation Question?


#1

We have early morning breakfast reservations for our upcoming trip to Disney. Curious about the best transportation options from the Contemporary Resort to the following locations…

Epcot, Akershus @ 8:15am?
Hollywood Studios, Hollywood & Vine @ 8:05am?
Polynesian, Ohana @ 7:45am?

Are the buses/monorail running early enough for us to make those reservations on time? Or will we need to arrange transportation? Keeping in mind we have 3 small children and a stroller.


#2

There are breakfast buses at most resorts but I can’t say for sure from monorail resorts - it seems like deluxes have a less reliable bus service since they have other options.


#3

I know the times guide for this week says the monorail is supposed to start running at 7:30 am so that might make getting to 'Ohana on time a close call.


#4

We took a Minnie Van from Grand Floridian to Epcot for an 8:05 am ressie. We pulled it up on the Lyft app around 7:30, it arrived at 7:40, and we were through security and at our res basically on time.


#5

Similarly, even the 8:15 at Akershus could be a challenge on the monorail due to the need to transfer and walk from the gates to almost the back of the park.


#6

I found that the monorail from TTC to EP didn’t start running till 8:30ish, so assume uber/lyft/minnie van needed for EP, you should be fine getting the bus for HS, and resort monorail for Ohana.


#7

I found the resort monorail started well before it’s official time


#8

We found this to be very true - and a constant source of frustration at Grand Floridian. It was very frustrating! We ended up getting a Lyft or Uber for those types of things.


#9

My understanding is that minnievans have two kids car seats. The OP said they have three small children. Is the only option to get two vans? Wouldn’t that be crazy expensive?


#10

Yes if they need 3 car seats they’d need 2 Minnie vans, it would be really expensive. But if they did uber they’d need 3, that wouldn’t be a cheap option either.
