    We are going to be driving to the parks as we are staying at an off site property. If we have a meal planned at a hotel that does have a monorail/bus, are we able to just hop on the monorail and take that to the parks after our character meal?

    Hi Rina!

    Guests that are not actually staying at a resort are allowed to park their vehicles for up to three hours to enjoy their dining experience.  However, it is asked that vehicles not be left for longer than that amount of time so that there is sufficient parking for guests that are staying at that particular Disney resort.  
    If you will be dining at a location such as Chef Mickey's or 1900 Park Fare, I suggest to park at the Ticket and Transportation Center located adjacent to the Magic Kingdom.  From there, you can just hop on a monorail or bus to reach your destination.  This way you will not have to move your car multiple times and take advantage of riding the monorail, which I think is an attraction all by itself!  I hope this helps and please let us know if we can answer anymore of your questions!

    Enjoy your Disney Time!
