    I am taking my grandchildren to Disney the end of June and have reserved a 7:25 Chef Mickey breakfast. Is the monorail running to get us to the Contemporary or do I have to park there?

    Hey, Susan!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I absolutely love, love, love Chef Mickey’s. Being in the Grand Canyon Concourse of Disney’s Contemporary Resort while dining on omelets, pastries and, of course, Mickey Waffles is always a trip highlight. We can’t wait for our hugs from Mickey and the rest of the “Fab 5” in their chef attire. Your grandchildren are going to have a mouse-tastic time!

    The Walt Disney World Monorail System operates from 30 minutes prior to earliest park opening until one hour after latest park closing. Check the opening time for Magic Kingdom Park on the day you plan to dine to determine the monorail schedule. Disney Transportation buses from Disney Resort hotels, most days, will begin shuttling Guests around 6:30 a.m. for early dining experiences. Speak to the Disney Resort hotel concierge the day before your dining experience to firm up the details. I would also tell the bus driver that you have reservations at 7:25 a.m. at Chef Mickey’s before you board and ask if the bus will stop at Disney’s Contemporary Resort for you.

    Other Guests may park complimentary at Disney's Contemporary Resort for up to three hours while they enjoy their dining experience.

    Disney Dad Tip: Disney friends find thick markers (Sharpie) easier to hold when signing autographs.

    Susan, enjoy making many delicious and Magical Memories!
