    We are staying at the GF and have 8am reservations at The Garden Grill for a 9am Epcot park opening. Will we be able to take the monorail or will it be too early and we will have to drive? Thank you!

    Hi Shaunna,

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel. The Garden Grill Restaurant is amazing, one of my favorite restaurants at WDW.  The most efficient way to maximize time and get to your meals quickly is to take a taxi/Uber. However, if that isn't in your vacation budget, there are usually early buses for guests with breakfast reservations. Regular buses begin running one hour before the park's scheduled opening, but there are special bus schedules and routes set up to ensure Guests can get to their early morning meals. The character breakfast buses normally start running about 6:30 A.M. You can confirm the character breakfast bus timing at your Resort when you check-in. In your case, you should verify if the monorail would be an option for you too. Ask a Cast Member about the monorail schedule functioning hours.

    Have a magical day!
