    Hi all. What time should we plan to leave All Star Mov resort for ADR at Chef Mickeys for 9:35. Need to enter Magic Kingdom first to exchange pp+ voucher for card and lanyard don't want to risk losing photos by just showing voucher at Chef Mickeys. Thanks!

    Hi there Nicola,

    To be safe, I recommend leaving All Star Movies around 8:00 am.  This will allow you plenty of time to arrive at Chef Mickey's without having to rush like crazy!  I would give yourself about 30 minutes for travel to the Magic Kingdom, and then an additional 15-20 minutes to enter the park and redeem your PhotoPass+ voucher at the PhotoPass Processing Center in Town Square.  

    Once you're all set, you can either hop aboard the resort monorail and disembark at the first stop, which will be the Contemporary, or you can follow the footpath to the left of the Magic Kingdom Entrance!  From here, you can walk to the Contemporary in about 10 minutes.

    Another option would be to catch the resort water launch bound for the Grand Floridian.  There is a PhotoPass desk on the second floor and they will be able to assist in obtaining your PhotoPass+ lanyard and card.  From here, simply hop aboard the monorail and disembark at the second stop, which will be the Contemporary!  Depending on the crowd levels at the Magic Kingdom turnstiles, this may be a better option! You can assess the situation once you arrive at the Magic Kingdom, and decide from there!

    Best Wishes,

    Amanda F.
