    Good Morning! I am planning ahead for our trip the week before Easter 2018.We are staying at Port Orleans Riverside and will be driving to the Magic Kingdom.On a day with EMH starting at 7:00, will the monorail and/or ferry be open from the TCC that early?

    Greetings, Mary, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we thank you for this excellent question!

    How excited you must be about your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort during our Spring Festivities to enjoy many unique and convenient benefits as a Disney Resort hotel Guest! 

    Disney’s Extra Magic Hours is just one of those many benefits, and you will be pleased to hEAR that the Walt Disney World® Monorail System operates from 30 minutes prior to earliest Theme Park opening, until one hour after latest Theme Park closing. Hours of operation for Walt Disney World® Water Transportation vary subject to water and weather conditions, but my experience has been that the ferry from the Transportation and Ticket Center did operate for me during Extra Magic Hours (subject to change).

    Mary, standard Parking at all four Disney Theme Parks will be complimentary for you as a Disney Resort hotel Guest, where you can use your valid MagicBand as entry at the Parking Booth.

    Moms Tip!
    At 60-days before your Disney Resort hotel check-in, you may wish to expedite your arrival at the Front Desk by completing your Online Check-In.

    We hope this information is helpful, Mary, and wish you many happy Disney memories!
