    Hi, we have an 8:25am ADR at MK and would like to drive from OKW. How can we get from the TTC to MK turnstiles for 8:00am? This is an hour before park opens (not an EMH day). Does the monorail start early enough or should we use another option? Thx

    Hi Andrew,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel! We're glad you're hEAR!

    No worries - if you want to drive your own car, you can park at the Transportation & Ticket Center and take the Monorail over.  If the Express Monorail isn't operating yet, you will be able to take the Resort Monorail over to the Magic Kingdom.  Just be sure to allow yourself a little extra time since you'll be making stops at the Polynesian Resort & the Grand Floridian before you arrive at the Magic Kingdom. 

    Be sure you have your reservation confirmation number on hand. I haven't had to show mine but I'm one of those that likes to always be prepared just in case.

    You will still need to go through security before going through the turnstiles.  We entered the turnstiles farthest to the left if you are facing the Main Street Train Station.  It was marked on the sign above the turnstiles but if not Cast Members will be there to assist you in the right direction.

    When I have an ADR before the Magic Kingdom opens, I love taking pictures as we head down Main Street.  Its not crowded yet and I feel like I'm starting my day with a little extra pixie dust because I feel like I *almost* have the park to myself.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
