    We have 8:35 breakfast reservations in MK. What time can we board the monorail and enter the park? Our tickets are will call. Can we pick them up the day before at Disney Springs? If we're linked to bands, do we still need to go to will call?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Anne!

    I just love an early morning in Magic Kingdom Park. There is something so magical about walking right down the middle of Main Street, U.S.A. first thing in the morning, with the cooler morning air, gorgeous Florida skies, and Cinderella Castle in the distance. You’ll be in the middle of that magic very soon!

    Anne, if you’ll be parking at the Transportation & Ticket Center and taking the monorail to Magic Kingdom Park for your early breakfast reservation, the resort monorail is your best bet. It begins running early to accommodate Guests with early dining reservations at the monorail-loop resorts and Magic Kingdom Park – in my experience, that’s usually an hour in advance of park opening. If you’ll be in Disney Springs the night before your visit, you might want to pick up a Times Guide, which will show the official monorail hours for the week you’re visiting. 

    As for your Will Call theme park tickets, it’s hard for me to answer because there are so many different types of tickets. Since you’ve linked the tickets to your MagicBands using your My Disney Experience account, you should be able to proceed directly to the entrance tapstile, but you will want to be prepared to show a copy of your ticket order (it’s fine to pull that up on your phone) and your photo ID. Some types of tickets do need to be activated, especially those that are discounted, such as Florida Resident or military tickets. If it’s easy for you to stop by the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs, I recommend doing that so you know you’re all set and won’t have any delays on your way to breakfast. You could also call the Existing Tickets helpline and a Cast Member can assist you in advance.

    I hope you enjoy your breakfast and every moment of your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! If you have any further questions as you count down the days and dream about your adventures, please come back and see us.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
