    Hi there, We are visiting Disney World 5/27/15 and have 8:25 a.m. reservations at Cinderella's Royal Table. How early does the Magic Kingdom parking lot open as well as the monorail? Thanks

    Hi A Elisabeth,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Breakfast at Cinderella's Royal Table in Magic Kingdom Park is just about as magical as it gets when it comes to Dining Experiences! I can't think of a better way to start the day than with Mickey waffles and Royalty! 

    The Magic Kingdom Park /Ticket and Transportation Center parking lot opens about two hours before the Park officially opens. Once at the Transportation and Ticket Center, you have the choice of crossing Bay Lake to Magic Kingdom via Ferry Boat or Monorail or taking Disney Bus Transportation. The Monorail operating hours that are currently listed for the day of your visit are from 7:00 A.M. to 1:00 A.M. Hours are subject to change so, if the Monorail isn't operating in time for you to arrive for your Reservation, then you'll need to take either Disney Bus Transportation or a Ferry Boat. The Buses to Magic Kingdom Park are located to the right of the Monorail platforms and, in my opinion, are usually quicker than the Ferry. When you arrive at Magic Kingdom Park, look for a MagicBand touchpoint entrance to the far left that is designated for those with early morning in-park breakfast reservations. Make sure you have your Advanced Dining Reservation confirmation number on hand to show the Cast Member at the touchpoint. Since the Park will not yet be open to the public you'll have the opportunity to enjoy a walk down Main Street, U.S.A. without the usual crowds. Although there is no guarantee, PhotoPass Photographers have been available in the past for photo opportunities in front of Cinderella Castle.

    I hope this information helps. Please let us know if we can help you with any additional vacation planning questions!

    Magical Wishes,
