    30 days I can't wait! I have a dilema. Staying off property, have an ADR at CRT at 0820. Parking shuttles don't start til 8:00. What is the best way to guarantee my princess and I make it to Cinderella's castle on time? What are my best options? Thanks

    Aloha Jeremiah,

    I recommend arriving at the Magic Kingdom parking area no later than 7:30 AM.  To be admitted into the lot before it officially opens, the cast member on duty will need to verify your reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table, so be sure to have it handy when you arrive! 

    Since you're arriving so early, you most likely won't even need to use the parking tram.  All you'll need to do is head over to the Ticket and Transportation Center which is right across the street!  From here, you'll need to board the monorail, as the Ferry will not yet be running!  The monorail will make stops at the Polynesian and then Grand Floridian before stopping at the Magic Kingdom!

    Once you arrive, use the special "Dining Reservation" turnstile to enter!  Once again, your confirmation number will need to be verified!

    This will be a great opportunity to snag some amazing pictures of your family in an empty Magic Kingdom, so be sure to allow plenty of time before your reservation!

    Best Wishes,

    Amanda F.
