    I booked the Keys to the Kingdom tour for Sept but I have a couple of questions. I will be staying offsite so I want to know what time the parking lots open & what time the monorail starts running. I don’t want to run into any problems in the am.

    Hey Howdy Hey Pam and welcome back to planDisney!

    Wow, Pam, I am so excited for your to be visiting Walt Disney World Resort in September. There is so much going on right now in Disney World and in the fall, there are so many special seasonal offerings that this will truly be a Magical time to visit! Even better, you will be able to experience the Keys to the Kingdom walking tour in Magic Kingdom which is so much fun! Ok, let's talk details to get you ready for your trip. 

    Since you will be driving in and parking in the theme park parking lot, the parking lots for each theme park open 45-60 minutes before the park opens. This should give you plenty of time to park your vehicle and start making your way to Magic Kingdom with plenty of time to spare! Speaking of getting to Magic Kingdom, Resort Transportation, which includes the monorail, starts to run approximately 45 minutes before the park opens as well. So just keep an eye on the Park Hours and you should be set for the morning to get to your tour check-in. 

    Considering you will be driving and parking your car, I wanted to let you know about a new development that was just released which is Car Locator in your My Disney Experience app. This new complimentary feature can be used when you park your car in the Magic Kingdom parking lot. Simply open up your My Disney Experience app and as long as you have location enabled on your phone, this information will be put into your account so that when it is time to leave, the app can remind you where you parked! Super cool and useful as many of us are so excited for the Magic, some details such as where we parked our cars may get overlooked at times!

    Best of luck as you continue to plan your upcoming trip and please stop back and let us know if you have any further questions, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
