    We have a reservation for breakfast at Cinderella's Royal Table for 8:25 am 10/29/14. I thought I saw that the monorail doesn't begin service until 8:30 am, so I am guessing we will be taking the boat from parking to the park. What time should we arrive?

    Hello Jennifer,

    One of my favorite memories, while visiting Walt Disney World, is when I made and early morning advance dining reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table. My daughter was 3 years old at the time and she was dressed in her Cinderella ball gown. We entered Magic Kingdom park before regular operating hours and I watched her race down Main Street U.S.A. towards Cinderella Castle with barely a Guest in sight. The pictures and the memories I have, at that moment, will forever be some of the most memorable moments for me. It truly is a magical way to start your morning.

    While Imagineers continue to make improvements to the Walt Disney World monorails and operating hours, for the time being, have been adjusted to accommodate; Guest will happily see watercraft and additional buses have been added. If parking, I recommend arriving at least 45 minutes to an hour before your advance dining reservation. Once at the Transportation and Ticket Center, make your way to the boat launch and enjoy a leisurely cruise across the Seven Seas Lagoon. You will arrive to Magic Kingdom park with plenty of time to peruse downtown Main Street U.S.A to Cinderella Castle. I highly recommend you take advantage of the moment. With so few Guests in the park, at this time, you will definitely be able to have some wonderful photo ops. 

    If I can be of any further pixie dusted assistance feel free to ask and enjoy your upcoming stay at Walt Disney World, may it be filled with many magical and memorable memories.
