    Is Chef Mickey's (Contemporary Resort) walking distance from Magic Kingdom? We are staying outside Disney (Double Tree Suites Hotel Plaza Blvd) and I don't think we can take the monorail, can we?

    Hi Glorian,

    Sounds like you've got an exciting trip planned going to Magic Kingdom and dining at Chef Mickey's.

    The Contemporary Resort is about a 10 - 15 minute walk from the front entrance of the Magic Kingdom so that is an option.  However, you do not have to be a Disney World Resort Guest to take advantage of most Disney Transportation at Walt Disney World. The exception to this is Disney's Magical Express Service which provides complimentary transportation to Disney's Resort Guests to and from the Orlando International Airport.

    All Disney World Guests, including non-resort Guests are still able to use the monorails, Disney buses, boat launches and ferry boats at no charge. So feel free to climb aboard the Monorail at the Magic Kingdom to go over to the Contemporary Resort for your dining reservation.  Just make sure you get on the Resort Monorail line.  It will be the first stop along the route.  Express Monorails go directly from the Magic Kingdom to the Ticket and Transportation Center and do not make stops at any of the resorts.

    Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
