    How do I get from the TTC to Magic Kingdom for 8am for a breakfast ADR at Crystal Palace? I understand that the monorail starts an hour before Park opening, which is 9am, but this wouldn't get us there in time. We are staying in an off-site hotel.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Sean ~

    Breakfast at The Crystal Palace is a magical way to start your day! We love the yummy buffet and visiting with all of our friends from The Hundred Acre Wood.

    The Resort Monorail line typically begins running at 7:00 a.m. If the Express Monorail is not operating when you arrive at the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC), you are welcome to hop aboard the Resort Monorail to head to the Magic Kingdom. The entrance for the Resort Monorail is to the left of the entrance of the Express Monorail (it is clearly marked or you can ask a Cast Member for assistance).

    Keep in mind that the Resort Monorail will make stops at the Polynesian Resort and the Grand Floridian Resort before arriving at the Magic Kingdom so it will take a few minutes longer than the Express Monorail. I would add an extra 10 minutes or so into your travel time.

    Be sure you have your confirmation number for your dining reservation at The Crystal Palace handy for the Cast Members when you are ready to go through the touch point entries at the Magic Kingdom. You may want to give yourself a couple of extra minutes so that you can stop for photos along your journey down Main Street U.S.A. It is great to have the opportunity to take photos before the park is filled with Guests.

    Please feel free to visit us again with all of your planning questions. We are hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
