    On a typical day, what time does the monorail begin service from TTC? The past few times we’ve parked there to get in early we’ve had to use the ferry as the monorail isn’t running. Don’t know if it’s just our luck or if there is an official start time?

    Hi Alicia!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. My toddlers favorite thing in all of Walt Disney World Resort is by far the monorail, with Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room coming in at a close second! I swear if we just did those two things all day, he'd be a happy little mouseketeer!

    When arriving at the Transportation & Ticket Center, you should find that the Walt Disney World Monorail System begins operation approximately 30 minutes prior to the earliest park opening. From time to time Stitch gets up to mischief and you'll find the monorail can be a tad delayed, but this is certainly a rare exception and not the norm. The hours of operation for Disney Water Transportation varies more so on the weather conditions, so if it was a bright and beautiful day, the ferry may have been running more often and the Cast Member directed you to the quicker option to start your day at Magic Kingdom.

    Please come back if we can help in any other way before your trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth!
