    We will be staying at The Grand Floridian. We have an 8:05am ADR at The Crystal Palace. The Magic Kingdom opens at 9:00. What time will the monorail begin running?

    The monorail will begin operating before 7:00. In addition to folks like you who need to get to the Magic Kingdom early, there will also be guests that need to get to the Contemporary hotel even earlier than that for a breakfast reservation at Chef Mickey's or for other early events in other parts of WDW. The Disney transportation system is up and running to get everyone where they need to be on time. If I were you, I'd be at the monorail station by about 7:30. The ride to the Magic Kingdom itself only takes about two minutes, but you'll want to leave ample time to get through security and the ticket turnstiles and check in at the restaurant podium.

    Happy dining!
