AKL kidani villas, will I make 8:20 reservation at MK?

Hi all we have the option for an 8:20 or an 11:35 at Crystal palace this Sunday. I am wondering if we would make it to the park on the bus system my the 8:20 reservation time? I read that the buses don't start running from the resort until an hour before park opening which is 9 that day. What is your recommendation?

We had an 820 for Crystal palace while staying at the GF. We took the monorail over, and it was priceless to see the look on my niece's face when we walked up to the gate and were told the park didn't open for another hour yet, and when I said I had an ADR and they verified and let us in - -her face lite up like I was Superman. No one else on Main Street USA!!!

Yes, take that 8:20am - it's awesome to walk down Main Street when it's empty.

I would get out to the bus stop at 7:15 to be sure you catch a bus around 7:20-7:30.

That gets you to MK by 8:00 and even if the next bus is closer to 7:40 you will be at the Magic Kingdom by 8:10, plenty of time.

Questions by PM are welcome!
