    We have breakfast planned at magic kingdom, I believe its at 830, before park opens. How long will it take to get there from the parking lot. We are not staying at a Disney resort.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Nicole! Thanks for bringing us such a great question! 

    I’m so excited you are planning an early breakfast at Magic Kingdom. What a great way to kick-off a magical day! Getting an early reservation allows you early entrance to the park along with some really great photo opportunities as you experience seeing the park before opening. You will be able to stroll along Main Street U.S.A with very few guests and Disney’s PhotoPass photographers will be there early to capture those magical moments for you! 

    Nicole, once you arrive at Magic Kingdom's parking, also known as the Transportation and Ticket Center, you will then take a monorail or ferry to Magic Kingdom. I would recommend allowing 30-minutes time just to navigate the parking, tram, bag check, and transportation to Magic Kingdom, on top of the time it will take you to drive from your hotel to the park; just to be sure you will arrive on time.  As you plan, search the navigation option on the My Disney Experience mobile app that can give you an estimate walk time from the entrance of the park to your restaurant location and add that time in too. You don’t want to feel rushed on this very special day!

    Once there, be sure to be in the moment and take it all in! Magic Kingdom is really a most magical place that will give you that child-like wonder as you enjoy all there is to see and do. I hope you have an unforgettable day there and that you make many memories to be cherished for yEARs to come! 

    If you have any more questions about your upcoming visit, be sure to come back and see us. It is our pleasure to help you plan this very special visit to the place where magic is endless! 

    See your real soon,
