    We are doing a drive by one day visit to magic kingdom. But we have a 730 reservation at chef mickey and we were told we could valet park for the day there, is that true? Park doesn't open until 9am so not sure about transportation in and out.

    Hi Buffie! I am glad you are able to plan at least a quick one day visit to Walt Disney World while you are in the area. As I always say, less is better then none when it comes to a Disney trip!

    Congratulations on getting a much coveted Chef Mickey reservation for your day. It is early but what a great way to start your day at Disney World. When you enter the guard gate you can mention you have the Chef Mickey reservation and let them know you will be valet parking. They will direct you to the area where you will need to go. Once your meal is over you can simply hop on the monorail at the Contemporary Resort and get to the Magic Kingdom. You will be making three stops before arriving so it is not always the shortest way to get there. Most guests will opt to take the short walk to the park from that location. There are sidewalks the entire way and one road to cross but it does have pedestrian crosswalk lights. When we are at the Contemporary and want to go to the Magic Kingdom this is always what we choose to do.

    The park opens officially at 9am but right now they are trying something new for the Rope Drop and Welcome and allowing guests to enter early and enjoy the Main Street shops and dining. Your timing will be perfect to enjoy a character meal and then get into the park just a bit early to enjoy Main Street. Be sure and make your FastPass selections before you arrive so you can plan out your day as best as possible to avoid long lines.
