    We have an early breakfast (8:25AM) in the Castle at the Magic Kingdom on May 9th, and was wondering what time the Monorails start running, and how early we would be allowed to enter the Park? I Searched the question, but could not find the answer.

    Hi Dave,

    The Resort Monorail begins running at 7am everyday and the Express Monorail starts 30 minutes before Park opening. If you are staying in a Resort located on the monorail, you'll be all set to use it for transportation. However, if you are staying in a different Resort, you'll want to take a bus instead to get to the Magic Kingdom that early in the morning.

    Once you arrive at the gate, proceed to the turnstile on the far-right hand side. It will be marked for early entry for Advanced Dining Reservations. Since you need to arrive at the podium to check in for breakfast 15 minutes early, I recommend that you arrive at the Magic Kingdom by 7:50am. This will give you 20 minutes to stop for unobstructed photos of the castle (there won't be very many other families in the Park at that time) and to enjoy the stroll down Main Street.

    Hope this helps and have a Magical vacation with your family,
