First bus from WL to AK in the morning?

My family is taking our first trip to WDW very very soon and I have a question for all of you Wilderness Lodge veterans.

We have a pre-rope drop ADR at Tusker House (8:35 AM) on our first full day at WDW. From what I understand, the buses start running 1 hour before parks open. If we get on the first bus from WL to AK that morning will we get there in time for our ADR?

Thanks in advance!

to the DIS and the WL/VWL thread. Since I got confused about early ADR buses recently, I looked it up. ADR buses actually run so that guests can make the earliest ADR. This should help explain how the early ADR buses work:

Buses for the Magic Kingdom and Magic Kingdom Resort Area will start running at 6:30am DAILY.

Buses for Animal Kingdom/Animal Kingdom Lodge will start running at 7:00-7:15am DAILY.

Buses for the Disney's Hollywood Studios (covering the Epcot Resort Area) will start running at 7:00-7:15am DAILY.

Buses for Epcot (Princess Breakfast at Norway) will start running at 7:00-7:15am DAILY.

This information is valid EVERY DAY, and for ALL DISNEY RESORTS serviced by Bus transportation.

These buses are for Breakfasts only, and should not be used for general park access. Always let the driver know where you are going upon boarding the bus. Most times, the driver will be able to take you directly (ie: Contemporary, for Chef Mickey's) but sometimes this is not possible. As such, you should always allow time for a connection when going Resort to Resort. Actual arrival times will vary by location.

Thanks!
Bumping in case someone knows for you.

So quick question....can you get club level with a standard room with bunk beds? Trying to figure this out!

Thanks

Yes, just make sure to include your request in your reservation and then ask the IPO to confirm that it's in there so the Room Assignor will see it.

My question for you WL experts is this: we will need two rooms, prefer connecting. Can you get one room with bunks and one with queen beds? Or in order to be connecting, do they need to be "mirrored" room types?
I know they cannot guarantee connecting rooms.
TIA!!
Welcome! We did a BLT-WL/CL split last August and loved it - food for thought. I believe that the bunk rooms aren't mirrored so you could get a bunk next to two queens. Hopefully, someone can confirm this

Your VWL stay is coming up soon! Will you be posting a TR of sorts?

The link I have in Post #1 is as up to date as The Mouse for Less posts them to their site. They never post though prior to the month and sometimes they're a bit late so just keep checking the link everyday for May.


ETA: Just checked and the MAY CALENDAR is up! Just click on the link in Post 1.

Thank you so much! Since these buses are for early ADRs only, will I need to show proof of my ADR (like a confirmation number) in order to get on the bus? Will the buses for each location run about every 20 minutes or will we need to be ready for the early ADR bus at 7:00/7:15?

You're welcome. It helped me, too since we never do early ADRs. I think it would be fun taking your own private early ADR bus! I need to put this up on the first page of all my threads

I don't think the bus driver will want it. But, you'll need to give your name to get into the park pre-opening. The CMs have an ADR list that they'll match it against, so it's best to always have your confirmation numbers with you, like in your phone or a down-sized paper list.

Hmmm well if I'm paying an extra $50/night for my parents in a deluxe room (which is silly and money grubbing to me, shame on you Disney) I may just get two rooms. Which means we will stay at WL. Or maybe go back to AKL as it will be the last trip we fit in a CL room there. This is so confusing !!!

Gotta say I haven't found a resort or hotel that DIDN'T charge extra for a 3rd and 4th adult.

For a standard room I agree. But for a 2 room suite with 3 queen beds? That irritates me for some reason.

ETA: especially as Disney will make more money off of 1 deluxe, even w/3-4 adults than 2 standard rooms. Oh well. Now I have more decisions to make.
