    What time do the parking lots open? Also what time do monorails start running? We are visiting February 5, 2022. Our plan was to park at Epcot and monorail to Magic Kingdom for rope drop, then monorail back to Epcot during park hopper hours.

    Hi Anna, and welcome to planDisney!

    I love having an upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation to plan for, and with your arrival date closing in, the real fun is just about to begin!

    From the looks of it, you have a pretty solid plan in place to rope drop Magic Kingdom Park. Theme Park parking starts about 45-60 before the opening time of that specific theme park. If the opening hours of EPCOT and Magic Kingdom Park differ in time, you might have to make some slight adjustments, but I am sure it will work out either way. I recommend reviewing the park hours of the theme parks you plan to visit and the specific dates to help you plan your arrival.

    The Walt Disney World Monorail System starts 30 minutes prior to the earliest park opening, which should help you get to Magic Kingdom Park in time.

    If you need us, please let us know how we can help.

    Have a magical day!
