    Does the monorail from the Magic Kingdom to the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa operate before the park opens? I have a wedding planning session scheduled for 9:00 AM and hoped to use Disney transportation from All-Star Sports rather than getting a taxi.

    Hi Wayne,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for bringing this question to us. 

    The Resort Monorail is my favorite way to travel when at the Walt Disney World resort. Typically, the monorail starts boarding at least 30 minutes prior to the earliest park opening and one hour after the latest park closing. So check the Park Hours for the day of your wedding session to approximate when the earliest monorail run might be.

    Remember that you can also use Bus Transportation and Water Taxi service to get from Magic Kingdom to the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

    I also encourage you to allow more time than you think you might need to get from the resorts to the parks. As a general rule, I allot at least an hour and a half in transportation time. 

    If you have not taken a look at Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings and Honeymoons, please do. There are a variety of ways to make your wedding planning experience special. 

    Magical planning!
