    Reservation at 7:40am for Chef Mickey’s but we live in town so not staying on property. If I arrive at the TTC at 7am will they be open and will the monorail be running to take us to the Contemporary that early?

    Hi Ashley!  

    Welcome back to planDisney!  I'm so glad you stopped by to see us again!  

    Ashley, Chef Mickey's is one of those character breakfast locations that just makes my heart happy no matter how many times I visit!  I love seeing the classic characters, enjoying some yummy Mickey waffles, and joining the festive atmosphere that the restaurant provides.  Resort transportation typically begins about 45 minutes before the theme parks open, but the hours for the Monorail state that the Express and Resort Monorail lines begin operating 30 minutes before Magic Kingdom opens.  I checked the operating hours for Magic Kingdom on Saturday and it looks like Early Theme Park Entry begins at 8:30 AM which means Monorail transportation may not begin until closer to 8:00 AM.

    While I know this isn't the answer you were hoping to hear, there is another option available.  Since you have a dining reservation, you can enjoy complimentary parking at Disney's Contemporary Resort during your breakfast!  If you're planning to visit Magic Kingdom Park after your reservation, you would need to move your car to the Transportation and Ticket Center before heading into the park.  I know this adds an extra step, but it would ensure that you make your breakfast reservation on time.  Don't forget that you can use the Car Locator feature in the My Disney Experience Mobile App as a helpful way to remember where you park!  

    Ashley, I hope this information is helpful as you plan your visit for this weekend!  If you have any other questions, please stop by to see us again here at planDisney - we're all ears!

    See ya real soon!
