    We have breakfast reservations before the park openings. If our reservation is at 8:00, how early can we arrive to the park and check in?

    Hi Julia!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    I'm so glad you've secured an Advance Dining Reservation for an early breakfast inside one of Walt Disney World Resort's amazing theme parks. Starting your Disney day with a magical breakfast is so much fun!

    Guests with early dining reservations will be allowed to enter the park at least 20-30 minutes prior to their reservation time. For an 8am reservation, I'd suggest arriving at the park around 7:30am. There will typically be Cast Members outside of the park entrance with signs indicating the entryway for guests with early morning dining reservations. Simply check in with these Cast Members when you arrive, and make sure to have your dining confirmation number handy. Guests dining inside Walt Disney World theme parks will need valid park admission to gain entry to the park.

    I hope this helps with your planning - have a magical day! - Diane W.
