    We are staying at Bay Lake Tower and want to do early morning hours for EPCOT. what is our best transportation and about how long will it take to get there? Is Monorail working that early in the morning?

    Hello Molly,

    Oh my Goodness, soon you will be at the most magical place in the world and during one of my favorite times to visit. With Fall colors and decorations adorning Walt Disney World, Epcot's International Food & Wine Festival and Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, you are sure to have many magical and memorable moments.

    Your best travel option, from Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort to Epcot for an early morning arrival, is the monorail. Keep in mind many Guests love to arrive for rope drop (aka when the park opens) and will line up a good 30- 40 minutes prior to opening and you should anticipate a good 45 minutes of travel and transfer time. Board the Resort monorail, at Disney's Contemporary Resort, and travel to the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC), which is the first stop after boarding. Disembark at the TTC and make your way to the Epcot monorail for the final leg of your trip and to begin an early morning adventure at Epcot. 

    If I can be of any further pixie dusted assistance feel free to ask and safe travels to Walt Disney World.

    Peace, Love & Mickey,
