    We plan on dining at Chef Mickey for supper & we are staying at AOA. I've seen people normally go on the day they are at MK for easier transportation but we plan on being in Epcot that day. Is there a way to get to CM from Epcot? If so does it take lon

    Welcome to the Mom's Panel, Lisa!  Chef Mickey's is one of my favorite Character Dining Experiences! Rest assured, you can definitely get to Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort from Epcot and it is fairly simple as well!  You will want to take the monorail from Epcot to the Ticket and Transportation Center. At the Ticket and Transportation Center, you will need to change monorail lines to get to Disney's Contemporary Resort.  The easiest route is to then get on the Disney Resort monorail which will stop at Disney's Polynesian Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Magic Kingdom and then Disney's Contemporary Resort. Another route you may also consider taking is the Express monorail to Magic Kingdom and then transferring to the Disney Resort monorail with your first stop being Disney's Contemporary Resort. I have done this both ways and although taking the Express monorail to Magic Kingdom was probably the quickest route, it gives you an additional transfer which may be more challenging.  I would allow 45 minutes travel time to arrive at Disney's Contemporary Resort from Epcot. If you will be going back to your Disney Resort following dinner, I can help you with that as well!  The easiest route is by enjoying the short 10 minute walk to Magic Kingdom from the Contemporary Resort where you will be able to catch the disney bus transportation bound for Disney's Art of Animation Resort.  I hope this information helps!  Please feel free to write me back with any additional questions.  Best wishes for a Magical Trip, Lisa!
    Happy Travels,
