    Hi I have an 8:25am BOG reservation. MK is not offering extra magic hours early that morning. A few questions: 1. How early should I arrive to make the reservation? 3. Will we be able to get to the park entrance via Monorail and the headback to BOG?

    Hi Sara!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is only a few days away!  I'll be happy to help you with all those last-minute details for your trip.

    Breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant is a great choice!  Not only is the food delicious, (just ask the dishes!) this dining location has one of the most unique atmospheres in all of Walt Disney World Resort.  Be sure to listen closely as you walk by the suits of armor.  My favorite tables are near the windows where I can watch the snow falling softly outside.  Enchanting, indeed!

    Sara, you don't mention where you are traveling from the morning of your breakfast.  If you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, your best bet will be the complimentary bus service from your resort, which will drop you off right in front of Magic Kingdom Park.  If you are staying at one of the Resort Hotels around Seven Seas Lagoon, use the monorail.  Although the park officially opens at 9:00 am this week, all Guests may enter about an hour prior to the scheduled opening time in order to make their way up Main Street, U.S.A. to enjoy the "Let the Magic Begin" welcome show.  Guests with early morning reservations are usually admitted around 7:45 or so.  Look for signs directing you to the check-in area for Guests with early morning reservations, to the left of the entrance gates.  I would plan to be at your bus stop about an hour prior to the time you would like to be in the park.

    If instead you will be driving, I would plan to arrive at the Transportation and Ticket Center (where the parking lot for Magic Kingdom Park is located) lot by 7:30 am.  The Resort Monorail usually begins operations at 7:00 am.  This week on Tuesday, the monorail begins running at 11:00 am.  You can take the ferry across Seven Seas Lagoon to reach Magic Kingdom Park.  When the monorail is not in service, buses will also be provided.  Ask a Cast Member when you arrive at the Transportation and Ticket Center which is the best way to reach Magic Kingdom Park.

    Have a wonderful visit, and enjoy your breakfast!  Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
