    What time does the monorail/ferryboat start running to the Magic Kingdom from the TTC in the a.m.? We have 8:05 reservations at Be Our Guest and are staying OFF property. I want to be at bag check by 7:30 on a Monday (no EMH, park opens at 9)...help?

    Hi Margaret, thanks for being OUR Guest at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Be Our Guest Restaurant is one of the most enchanting places to dine in Walt Disney World! The castle is magnificent, and we always try to eat in Beast’s West Wing study so that we can get a picture with the enchanted rose. Last time we went for lunch, we ordered our meal ahead via My Disney Experience. It was super convenient and allowed the pickier eaters in our party the time to choose their meal. You can do the same for breakfast, and can order up to 30 days before your reservation.

    The scheduled Monorail from the Transportation and Ticket Center starts 30 minutes before the earliest Park opening, and Magic Kingdom Park Watercraft transportation usually begins about 45 minutes before Park opening. But! You will be able to catch either an Express Monorail or a ferryboat from the Transportation and Ticket Center early enough for your reservation. One word of caution - the early transportation does not run as frequently as the regular schedule, so make sure to arrive super early! My husband’s favorite way to start a Magic Kingdom day is to sail across Seven Seas Lagoon on the Ferryboat. My son’s preferred mode of transportation is the Monorail. Both will work fantastically for your early meal!

    Once you arrive at Magic Kingdom Park, you can enter through the breakfast reservation line. They will verify your reservation, so make sure your MagicBand is on hand and that you have valid Theme Park Admission. With your early time, you might be lucky enough to get a picture on Main Street U.S.A. with Cinderella Castle as your background without anybody else in the frame. 

    Margaret, you are going to love breakfast at Beast’s Castle. Make sure to “try the grey stuff; it’s delicious!”
