Sorry if this has been asked but couldnt really find all the answers. We have an 815 BOG res. Was wondering if we would be able to take a bus from POR on a day when the park doesn't open until 9am. I've heard the buses begin one hour before park opening and I would like to leave before 8am. Also, do you enter at a special place? Not sure how we will know where to get in if there is a large group just waiting on rope drop? How early can we enter the park? 745? Thanks!
I've heard of a very early pre-rd adr bus running earlier than one hour prior to park opening. I'd give a call to the POR desk just to make sure if nobody here can confirm - but I have a sneaky feeling that someone here will be able to. I'd also suggest that Uber would be a very good friend to you to leave nothing to chance for very little money.
As for entry, you'll be fine at 7:45, you'll see the adr entry section at the far left side of the park entrance. There will be a line at 7:45, and most likely, signs or cm's asking people if they have a reservation.
We just had an 820 res last week, caught a bus from POP at 650, in breakfast line by 720, and entered the park at 745. We were the third party to enter the dining room at 8am. There is a breakfast line all the way to the left at the tapstiles, there will be a cm there with a sign and another scanning bands to confirm your res. Very easy process!
Here's details to help you if you decide to try Uber/Lyft to get around:
