    We have a 9AM res. for the Princess Storybook Breakfast/Norway. The park opens at 9AM also, how early do they let guests with confirmed reservations into the park? Coming from the Beach Club, how early should we be at that gate to get to Norway by 9:00?

    Jean,

    You should be able to enter through the International Gateway Entrance at least 30 minutes before your reservation time, and you might be able to even enter a bit earlier. Depending on your walking speed, you should be able to get over to Norway within about 10-15 minutes from the entryway (assuming you go the UK, Canada, Mexico and then Norway route, which is your shortest option).

    It is usually a good idea to plan to show up about 10 minutes before your reservation.  This allows a cushion for any possible issues on your way, and if you are there 10 minutes early that will often help you get seated at or before your reservation time. 

    You also should allow 5 minutes for security/bag check, just in case.

    So, overall, I would plan to arrive at the security area at 8:20 or 8:25 if you want to have some extra time to get over to Norway.  However, if you arrive by no later than 8:35 you should have no problem being there on time (and you'll still likely be a tad bit early).

    Oh, and PLEASE be sure to bring your dining reservation number, as they will ask for it before they let you enter the park early.

    Hope that helps.
