    We are staying off-site and have made an ADR for 7:05am. Aside from the time it takes to drive to the park, how long does it take to get inside the park? I wasn't sure if the "breakfast buses" or monorail run from the parking lot to the MK.

    Hi Sara! 

    You will want to allow at least an hour in between leaving your hotel and getting to your Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR), assuming your hotel is 15 or so minutes away. If your hotel is further than 15 minutes away, add that time difference to this recommendation. While it may only take 15 minutes to get to the park, you will need to allow for time for parking, getting from the parking lot to the front gate, getting through bag check and getting up to the front gate of the park. If you are driving to the park, and you are arriving for a 7:05 a.m. breakfast, you will most likely be one of the first people at the park! The monorails will be running for Magic Kingdom, so you can take the monorail from the parking lot.

    When you arrive, tell the Cast Member you are there for an early morning reservation and they will let you in the gates to go back to your restaurant.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
