    It is our first trip to WDW with our 3 boys, 3, 2 and 7 months. We want to plan a breakfast at Chef Mickeys but the only time available is at 7am. What time does the parking at MK open as we are staying offsite and need to drive there?

    Hi Dana! I'm so glad you decided on Chef Mickey's for your character breakfast. Your boys are going to love eating bacon and biscuits while hangin' with Mickey, Minnie, and the gang.

    The Magic Kingdom parking lot opens two hours before the park. If your early morning reservation is on a day the MK opens at 8:00am, the lot will be open in plenty of time to park and reach Chef Mickey's by 7:00am. If your character dining meal is for a nine o'clock opening day, consider driving straight to Disney's Contemporary Resort and parking in the resort lot while you eat. Since there is a three hour time limit on parking for guests with dining reservations at the Contemporary, you will need to head over to the Magic Kingdom parking lot after breakfast.
