    I have a reservation for Chef Mickey's 8:45am our first full day. Can we park our car at the MK then take the monorail over to CR for our ARD? We are staying at the AOA with a rental car. What time does the monorail start running and how long would it take

    Hi Leslie!

    Welcome back!  We are so happy you are finding the Disney Parks Moms Panel so helpful when planning your Walt Disney World vacation.   I see you are staying at one of my families favorite Disney Resort hotel, Disney's Art of Animation Resort.   Please take time to explore the amazing themed courtyards around the Resort.   They are filled with so many charming characters from your favorite Disney and Disney Pixar films. 

    In order to reach your dining reservation at Chef Mickey's you can certainly drive your vehicle and park in the Magic Kingdom lot.   From the Transportation and Ticket Center you can take the Resort monorail to Disney's Contemporary Resort.   You will make stops at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, Magic Kingdom, and then Disney's Contemporary Resort.   It's a really fun ride and one I know you will enjoy.    The monorail usually begins running about an hour before the first dining reservations in the morning, but operating hours are always subject to change.   It would be a great idea to check with the concierge desk at Disney's Art of Animation Resort to find the exact monorail operating hours during your trip.

    Please let us know when we can offer you assistance in the future.  We love to help Guests have the most magical time possible on a vacation at Walt Disney World.
