Be Our Guest

    Claire from GA Asked

    Hi! We are a family of 5, but I was only able to get a reservation for 3 at BOG at 8 am. Park doesn't open until 9 but was wondering if all 5 of us could enter park at 8 and then the other 2 members wait outside until we get our food. TIA!

    Hi Claire,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am thrilled that you were able to make an early morning breakfast reservation for Be Our Guest! 

    My family loves pre-park opening breakfast reservations and it sounds as if you have one. Just be sure to double-check the park hours for the date of your dining reservation to be sure that there are no early morning Extra Magic Hours. All guests can now enter the park one hour prior to park opening to enjoy the shops on Main Street before the Let the Magic Begin Show.

    Those of you with the 8:00 a.m. breakfast reservation can enter the park before 8:00 a.m. On prior visits when we have done pre-park opening breakfast reservations, we have been able to enter at least 15 minutes prior to 8:00 a.m. So, some of you can enter before 8:00 a.m. while the rest of your party will have to wait at the park entrance. 

    Have you tried splitting the reservation and making another reservation for two guests? I have done that in the past. When we arrived at the restaurant, we informed the cast members that we had separate reservations but would like to sit together. They were able to accommodate that request. Also keep checking the reservation system. Cancellations do happen, even the week of your visit.

    Claire, we had a magical surprise on our last visit. We finished breakfast by about 8:45 a.m. When we exited the restaurant, we walked past Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and they were letting guests ride. Since the park was not officially open yet, there were only a few of us there and we did not need a Fast Pass+!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
