There are buses to an enroute some really amazing destinations in beijing. Don't miss this 07:00 bus, and don't wait until the last minute to get there. If coming by public transport, leave your lodging soon after 6 am to allow for fumble factor in finding the place. If by taxi, have the hotel write down in Chinese that you want the back lot on Xiangheyuan Lu, the taxi route is not the same as the walking route from the subway. There usually is an 08:30 bus or thereabouts, but it gets you to Mutianyu at a busier time and also has to deal with more traffic on the roads if at all you feel yourself lost in crowd identify the driver, he'll probably have the official bus company shirt on, but not necessarily. He'll be the guy hanging out nearby, maybe with some of the other drivers. Just ask which one he is! You can easily keep track of where you are, by chatting with the surrounding passengers. And you can even call over to the bus station yourself the day before to confirm times. You won't have any trouble. Make sure you ask what the timetable in for the return buses to Beijing is. If you get down from the Wall back to the Mutianyu parking area and don't want to wait around, usually there are shared minivans that wait around for people heading for nearby town of Huairou (or you might find a taxi dropping somebody off). That's about RMB 20-30 a piece if you bargain. Then catch bus 916 back from Huairou to Dongzhimen--they are very frequent, for speed try to make it express 916 not standard. The bus does a major stop just before Mutianyu- but don't panic and get off!
