    Hi!
    We have a 9:00 reservation for breakfast at Whispering Canyon and we're staying at Riverside. Can we get to the Magic Kingdom via bus and then take a boat over to the Wilderness Lodge that early?
    I wasn't sure what time the boats begin operation in the mornings. Thanks for the help.

    Shouldn't be an issue. I would plan on leaving POR about 7:45-8ish...when you get to MK, just walk on over to the boat docks. They are right there, just past the bus stops.
    The boats should have been up and running for quite awhile at this point.

    The boat you need is on the dock in front of security, it will be on the left side of the dock and have a red flag

    The hardest part may be getting the bus to MK in the morning.

    We had a breakfast ADR for Crystal Palace and got to the bus stop an hour and 20 minutes before, yet we had a hard time getting on a bus at POFQ. A bus would pull up and people would push on in front of us. While we were waiting for the driver to load an ECV another bus would pull up behind the bus we were waiting for and everyone at the back of the line got on the second bus, then after the ECV was loaded people entered through the back door. It took us four buses to get on a bus, yet we should have easily been able to get on the first bus that pulled up. So I will not make breakfast ADR unless I have my own transportation, it is not worth the stress and aggravation to me.

    I hope you spoke to GS about this....it should never happen! I've stayed on-site many times and have never had this happen.
    Was it a pre opening breakfast? there usually aren't very many people at the bus stop at 7:30 am... I guess if the ADR was for 10:30...maybe the bus stops are more crowded by then (I'm always at rope drop). But even still, the bus driver should not allow passengers to board through the back after a wheelchair or ECV has been loaded.
