    We have a reservation for the Tusker House in Animal Kingdom for 8:05am. I have been told to arrive at least 15 minutes early, but the park doesn't open until 8:00am! Will they let you into the park early in order to make it to the restaurant on time?

    No worries!

    All four theme parks have character breakfast seatings before the park opens. If you have a reservation for one of those seatings, it is very easy to get into the park for your meal.

    There will be a special park entrance turnstile open for guests with early breakfast reservations. It varies from park to park and season to season, but the special entrance line is most often on one of the far ends of the row of turnstiles. There will be sign posted that says something like "Character Breakfast Entrance." If you don't see it right away, just ask any cast member. As you get to the breakfast entrance line, there will be a person with a clipboard checking to make sure that guests entering here do have reservations. Just give them your name and they will check you off the list. It is a good idea to also have your confirmation number with you in case there are any problems.

    I ate at Tusker House last week. This is one of my favorite character meals. The food there is particularly interesting, featuring both American classics and unique African dishes. I love that my traditional-food-only daughter can have her fill of Mickey waffles and scrambled eggs, while I get to try Beef Bobotie and Mealy Pap (delicious, by the way).

    Enjoy your meal, and say "Hi" to Mickey for me.
