    Hi, We will be staying at AOA in Dec. We will use car to go to the parks. On the day that MK has EMH at 7.00 am, how do I use the TTC & monorail to get to MK before 7 am? What time does the TTC & monorail open if the official opening is at 8.00 am?

    Hi Yenny,

    This is a great question! We usually bring our own vehicle when visiting Walt Disney World Resort. As a Disney Resort Hotel Guest, you will get free parking throughout the Disney Parks, which is a great value!

    In the case of traveling to Magic Kingdom Park from Disney's Art of Animation Resort, I recommend taking the complimentary bus if at all possible. This is because the bus will bring you right to the main entrance and should save you some time, in my opinion.

    That said, you may certainly drive over if you wish, even during morning Extra Magic Hours. I would allow at least an hour to get there because once you park, it takes about 30 minutes to travel from the Transportation and Ticket Center to Magic Kingdom Park. If the Monorail is not yet open, the Ferryboat should be available.

    I hope this helps you plan a magical day! I can't think of a better place to be first thing in the morning.
