    We are staying offsite, but we have an early dining reservation (8:05 am) at Magic Kingdom. How do we get into the park that early while staying offsite? If we have a dining confirmation #, can we be dropped off at contemporary & walk?

    Hi, Deborah!

    An early dining reservation in the Magic Kingdom sounds like the perfect way to start your day. You and your travel party must be so excited!

    If you have a car, you can simply drive to the Magic Kingdom. After you have paid the daily parking fee and parked your car, you can hop on a tram to the Transportation and Ticket Center. Here, you can board the monorail to the Magic Kingdom gates.  Not including drive time from your resort, allow about 45 minutes to get to your reservation (parking, tram time, security, etc.)

    You can also take a taxi or car service to Disney's Contemporary Resort and walk to the Magic Kingdom. The walk takes about 10-15 minutes. This option only works if you are getting dropped off at the Contemporary, as you will be unable to park your car in the resort's parking lot.

    I hope your breakfast and entire Walt Disney World vacation is filled with magical experiences. Enjoy!

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
