    We have park reservations at the Magic Kingdom, and dinner reservations at The Wave. Can we park that morning at the Contemporary so that all we have to do after the Magic Kingdom closes is hop the monorail over to dinner and leave from the hotel?

    Hi Cindy!

    Thanks for visiting us here at planDisney!  I'm happy to help answer your question about guest parking and dining experiences at the Resorts!  Dining at one of the over thirty hotels at Walt Disney World Resort ensures you and your family enjoy unique cuisines and ambiance, while enjoying the Disney difference. 

    Guests who have dining reservations at the Walt Disney World Resort hotels are allotted a three hour window to park in the resort parking lot.  Seeing as you have a dinner reservation at The Wave...of American Flavors, located in Disney's Contemporary Resort, you would only be allowed to park at or close to your scheduled dinner time. Unfortunately, you would not be able to park in the morning to access Magic Kingdom from the resort.  My recommendation is to park at Disney's Transportation and Ticket Center, and take either the monorail or the ferry to Magic Kingdom.  Once Magic Kingdom closes, you may take the monorail to the Transportation and Ticket Center to retrieve your car and head to the Contemporary for your dining reservation.  Due to the monorails limited operating hours post park closing, it is recommended to retrieve your car first, then proceed to your dining destination.

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
