    My family and I are staying at the GF. Planning to make ADR at Le Cellier 5:30ish our first night. After we check in, should we plan to drive to Epcot, or take the tram? I booked through AAA, are there spots up front for us to park in that late in the day?

    Getting to EPCOT from the Grand Floridian resort is not only easy but quite enjoyable.  Check in for rooms is at 3:00 p.m. but often you can get in earlier so definitely try as soon as you arrive.  In any case once you have everything settled into your room give yourself enough time to get to EPCOT via the monorail.  This will often depend on the time of year and crowds so when you check in ask a cast member their advice as to how long they think it will take for that day.

    You will catch the monorail on the second floor of the lobby right next to the merchandise shop.  You will want to get off at the third stop which will be the Transportation and Ticket Center. Follow the signs for the EPCOT monorail and don't just follow the crowd as many people will be getting off to get to the parking lot.  This next monorail will take you directly to EPCOT.  Canada will be the first country on your right as you enter the World Showcase.  Le Cellier is a very popular restaraunt and a great way for you to start your vacation!
