    I'm not sure if anyone mentioned this or not but I purchased a pre made box breakfast the night before the race. They were selling them in the food court. If I remember correctly, the box contained a banana, a bagel, cream cheese, Peanut butter and a granola bar I think. It was very convenient. I think it was like $10. Maybe a little less. We took our boxes with us and ate them once we got to our corrals.

    Wow, Coach - what time does breakfast start in your villa? Do we need an ADR? Sounds loverly. ;)

    Carnation instant breakfast for me. Liquid, carb, little protein, all in a convenient to-go bottle. And a granola bar to soak it up. Win-win. I'm lazy.

    Thats the way to do it! You are basically still in your room until the crowds move. You pretty much have the best of both worlds...staying at Disney in YOUR place, getting it a much better rate than a hotel and just driving your home to the lot. I assume its a class b or small class c...you are lucky for that!

    My plan is to be on the last bus out of my resort (I usually am not but I shoot for it anyway) because the least time I can spend standing around before the start the better I like it.

    Breakfast is usually a half a bagel and a banana in the room before leaving- or on the way to bus if something happens.

    I have yet to finalize my times, but since this is my first Disney race, I would rather be at the start earlier to take in the experience rather than getting a little more sleep.

    Also, although this goes against conventional school of thought, I actually like/need to have something a little greasy like bacon and eggs on race day, so hoping they will be serving breakfast like that at Pop food court on race morning!

    Better grab your breakfast choice the morning prior and microwave in the food court.. You can usually get a refrigerator if not already there

    Will the buses go to the bus stops in Old Key West or only the main stop at the HH? I am planning on getting up at 2:45 and catch the bus around 3:30. Not planning on checking a bag. Just shorts, t-shirt, and maybe some knit gloves to throw away when the race starts.
