    If we are staying off property and have an 8:00 reservation at Crystal Palace, how will we get from ticket center to MK? I've heard the monorail doesn't run until about 30 minutes before park opens.

    Hi, Lisa! I just arrived home from an unforgettable week at Walt Disney World Resort with my #DisneyTween daughter. Before we left, I made note of questions Guests frequently ask us. The topic of monorail service is one I often read, so it was first on my list. I spoke with several Cast Members and discovered there is a simple answer for you.

    When you arrive for your breakfast at The Crystal Palace, there are really only two things you need to worry about. First, do you have enough room in your belly for all of Pooh's Puffed French Toast? Also, do your shoes have enough bounce in them for all the bouncing you will be doing with Tigger? Other than that, just follow the directions of the Cast Members and they will make sure you get over to Magic Kingdom Park in time for your breakfast.

    When you arrive at the Magic Kingdom Parking Lot at the Transportation and Ticket Center, hop aboard the next tram or simply walk to the main transportation area. There will be plenty of Cast Members stationed in this area to help direct you to the most appropriate transportation option. Occasionally the Resort, Express, and Epcot monorail beams do experience modified hours throughout the day. When this happens, there will be buses provided to whisk Guests around Seven Seas Lagoon. This was the case on the day my daughter and I visited the park last week. I also noted that the ferry was up and running earlier than I have experienced it. You may want to arrive at the Transporation and Ticket Center a little early to ensure a timely spot of honey with Pooh, possibly no later than 7:15 a.m.?

    Whether you arrive for your breakfast by bus, ferry, or even a Magic Carpet, I hope you have a delicious start to your day, Lisa. Please stop by again if you have any further questions for us!
