    I have a ADR reserved for the Princess Storybook breakfast in Epcot at 820am. Were flying in the night before but not staying in the park so I'm thinking we'll taxi over to the hotel in the morning (Wilderness Lodge) check in to get our park tickets and then go to EP. Do the buses or boat run this early over to EP? I know the parks not open till 9am

    The buses usually start running at 6:30am. For an early ADR at Epcot, they will be up and running in time to make your ADR. :thumbsup2

    I called the hotel and they said the shuttles don't start till 1 hr prior to parking opening so 8am in this case which I'm guessing won't work since our breakfast is scheduled at 820am, I guess out only option is a taxi :(

    You were told incorrectly. The PP was correct in stating 6:30 am.

    This is not true, as Vicki and NOLA stated. The buses will be running, I have personally taken a 6:30 bus a number of times. Phone CMs frequently give wrong information.

    Thanks, good to know. I think were going to rent a car now anyway and take the shuttle from the rental agency to the park.

    I'm confused. If you are renting a vehicle, why would you need a shuttle to the park? Why not drive to EPCOT in your rental? Arriving at the EPCOT parking lot that early will get you close to the front and you wouldn't need to ride the tram to the gates.

    Were only keeping the car for 24 hours since were arriving a day early we need it to get from the airport to a local Orlando hotel and then over to the Wilderness Lodge the next morning to get our tickets
