    We are renting a car and staying onsite we think our best plan of action to get to the MK entrance is to park at TTC and take the monorail but I read they don’t start running until 30min prior to opening but we don’t want to miss rope drop!

    Hi Dollie,

    It's nice to see you dropping by planDisney with an excellent question!

    Since it sounds like you are not staying at a resort hotel with access to Walt Disney World® Monorail Transportation, driving to the Transportation & Ticket Center (TTC) might be your best option. We just visited earlier this month and stayed at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort. The posted Monorail Operating Hours at the resort hotel at the time of our visit were 6:30 a.m. - 12:00 a.m. Given that monorail times for the TTC may vary for the dates of your visit, I suggest that you stop by the front desk of your resort hotel and confirm the operating hours when you arrive. 

    When I checked today, the Park Hours for Magic Kingdom on your arrival date note that early theme park entry for Disney resort hotel guests starts at 8:30 a.m. and the park officially opens to all guests at 9:00 a.m. So, I am so happy that you are planning to arrive early! We love early entry because it gives a chance to experience at least one or two attractions before the wait times get longer.

    Dollie, keep in mind that you may need to try to book a virtual queue for Tron Lightcycle/Run. You may also want to consider Disney Genie+ service so that you can book additional Lightning Lane experiences during the day. And, of course, I always remind folks to make advanced dining reservations. Doing so gives us a chance to sit inside while dining and, on several past occasions, those dining reservations have saved us from a momentary downpour!

    Happy rope dropping!

    Magic and memories,
