    Hi, Great Panel! We have a 9:10AM Reservation at CRT 4/20/09. Park opens 9AM. Staying at the Poly. ? is.. What time do you think we should leave the Poly to get to CRT on time as the park opens and crowds to get in may delay us at the entrance. Thanks

    I would be at the Polynesian monorail station at about 8:20. The monorail ride itself is only about ten minutes long, but I am a "better safe than sorry" girl. By leaving the hotel early, you'll still be on time for your reservation even if the monorail is delayed or you experience a back-up at the Magic Kingdom security entrance.

    One thing to think about ... if you end up arriving quite early at the MK, you should try to enter the park early. There will be a special entrance turnstile open for guests with early character dining reservations. Even though you technically don't need this special service, since you do have a reservation, I would go to that line prior to park opening time. With any luck, they will let you into the park. This way you can try to get seated early at Cinderella's Royal Table. The earlier you are dining, the earlier you can begin your park touring.
