    We will be arriving March 14th. We are planning Magic Kingdom when we arrive but have dinner reservations at the Garden Grill in Epcot at 6:55. What is the best way to get there and how long should we plan for travel?

    Hi Patricia!

    Dinner with Chip 'n Dale and their friends at The Garden Grill is a great way to take advantage of the Park Hopper option on your tickets! Since Magic Kingdom and Epcot are both accessible by the monorail, it will be very easy for your family to travel to dinner. When you leave Magic Kingdom, you can take either the monorail or the Ferry to the Ticket and Transportation Center. To save time, I would recommend taking advantage of the Express Monorail which will take you directly from the Magic Kingdom to the Ticket and Transportation Center. From there, you will transfer to the Epcot Monorail, which will take you to the Epcot entrance. Then you can enter the park and proceed to The Land in Future World to enjoy your dinner!

    To be on the safe side, I would recommend that you allow an hour to get from Magic Kingdom to The Garden Grill and an hour and a half if crowd levels are particularly high. You never know when you can hit a delay on the monorail or getting through the parks.

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
