Last time I was at Disney World, I snagged an 8:20 am ADR for Garden Grill. (Reservation became available at 6am the week before the trip). We left the Poly at about 7, walked to the transportation hub 7:15, missed a train by seconds. Bus & train waits are probably the most challenging family time at the parks. Didn’t arrive at the main gate until about 7:50. There was already a long line for early diners. (Week before Easter, level 9 observed). Got coffee & donuts from Joffery’s for the wait. It took 35 minutes to get through the single file security line and got to the Garden Grill at 8:30. 90 minutes of travel time was kind of stressful with a tired hungry family, but we only got to breakfast a little late, and it all worked out OK. 30 minutes was enough time. Food was good, they had POG on request, lots of character interactions, got to Soarin at 9:00 sharp and got two rides with little wait. First ride was 70% empty. Picking your seat is always nice. (eww gross don’t say that!)
This time I’ll be at the International Gateway from Beachclub.
- Can you enter for Epcot for “Pre-Rope-Drop Dining” from the International Gateway?
- If I cannot snag a lucky ADR, do they let people into Les Halles pre-rope drop to pick up a walking breakfast, or do you have to wait until after 9 to get in?
- I think I’d like to try Les Halles breakfast, but I could also go to Board Walk Bakery I guess. I’ve been to neither for breakfast. Anyone care to compare?
