    I have a reservation for a Character Breakfast at 0745 at the Polynesian Resort. I am not staying on Disney Property. This is a resort near the Magic Kingdom and it does not open until 0900. How to you get on property before the parks scheduled opening?

    Hi Hillary,

    No worries. The parking lot for the Polynesian resort is always open. You can arrive there well in advance of your breakfast reservation and be allowed to park.

    If you'd prefer to park at the nearby Ticket and Transportation Center lot, then that will work too. Even though the Magic Kingdom doesn't officially open until 9:00, there are always things like character meals and tours in the park that require guests to be there early and the parking lot will be open to accommodate them.

    If you park at the Ticket and Transportation lot, it's just a quick walk over to the Polynesian. If you head to the Magic Kingdom after your meal you can take the monorail and you won't have to move your car. Super easy!

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else we can do to help.
