    Hi, I have a question about character dining. I know Chef Mickey is located in the Contemporary Resorts. I heard it is near Magic Kingdom. After we park, do we need to take a monorail to chef mickey? Also, is monorail necessary to just go in Mag. Kingdom?

    Hi Ann!

    Parking for the Magic Kingdom is at the Ticket and Transportation Center. This is basically a "hub" of transportation to the Magic Kingdom park. There is also Monorail access to Epcot, the Grand Floridian, Polynesian and Contemporary Resort from this parking area.

    Everyone driving to the Magic Kingdom will park at this center, and then have the option of a Monorail or Ferry Boat to the park. Guests dining at resorts can park at that resort for their meal, but are not allowed to leave their vehicles at the resorts while visiting the parks.

    My best advice, if you're looking to visit Magic Kingdom and Contemporary on the same day, is to park at the Ticket and Transportation Center and use the monorails. The monorails are an attraction themselves- I never miss a ride on them when visiting Walt Disney World.

    Hope this helps!
