    Hi, I was wondering if anybody could tell me the where the monorail stops, specifically inside Epcot, but any extra is great. I am wanting to do the princess breakfast around 10/11 and the Coral Reef lunch at 1 or 2 then back to the WS, is this reasonable?

    Hi Brittany,

    The monorail can be used for transportation to and from Epcot and the stop is located just outside the front gate entrance to the park. After exiting the monorail, there is a long ramp that will lead you to the bag check and entrance turnstiles. Once inside the park you will be at the front of Future World, not to far from Spaceship Earth. The two dining locations that you are interested in are both located in Epcot, with the princess breakfast at Germany's Akershus in the World Showcase and Coral Reef attached to the Living Seas exhibit in Future World.

    You will need to walk to both locations and back to World Showcase after lunch as the monorail does not transport guests inside Epcot. The walk from one location to another in Epcot is easy to manuever but will take a short amount of time due to the size of the park. My thought here is not the walk but rather, will you want to dine at two delicious locations that close together.

    I always plan on my table service meals, especially the character experiences to take 75 to 90 minutes. The breakfast is a large buffet with eggs, waffles, fruit, pastries and more. If you were to eat at 10:30am, you most likely will not be finished and back in the park until noon. This would allow plenty of travel time to walk to Coral Reef for a lunch reservation however I am not sure that I would be ready to sit down and eat another yummy meal that quickly. Coral Reef has a scrumptious selection of chicken and seafood choices and you will want to be ready to enjoy all the delicious offerings without being to full.

    My suggestion is to try and earlier breakfast time or a later lunch time, or have breakfast late and save Coral Reef for an early dinner. You would be able to stay in the World Showcase after a late breakfast and enjoy the countries and then stroll to Coral Reef later in the afternoon when you are ready to sit down and enjoy another meal.
