    Good afternoon! If we have a dining reservation at Grand Floridian but no park tickets, can we park at the TCC (pay for parking there) and take the monorail to the Grand Floridian? Many thanks Warm wishes Joanne


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    Yes, you can absolutely park your car at the Transportation & Ticket Center, even if you do not have an active Theme Park Reservation for the Magic Kingdom. Once you park, you can hop on the monorail as you head to your dining adventure!

    I will admit, my daughters and I will fabricate almost any reason to go on another monorail ride! It is an attraction unto itself. I would hate, however, to neglect to mention that if you have a dining reservation for a restaurant at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, you can park there as well. This would save you some money, and you could still take a pre- or post-meal ride on the monorail. Neither of these options would require a Theme Park Reservation for the Magic Kingdom.

    If you happen to arrive early for a dinner date, consider dropping into the Enchanted Rose on the 2nd floor of the Grand Floridian Resort lobby. This elegant lounge is perfect for a drink and appetizer before your meal.

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
