    We have 8:30 am reservations at Be Our Guest. What time will we be able to get in the park? It's my understanding we should be at our dining reservations around 15-20 min before our reservation but since it's before opening do we still do that?

    Hey, Julie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Be our guest! Be our guest! Put our service to the test. Be Our Guest Restaurant in Fantasyland is tres bien. The meal was worth every bite. Our table of four took Lumiere’s advice and split the Croissant Doughnut. Yes, a fried doughnut covered in a banana-caramel sauce; taste buds meet perfection.

    Disney Transportation buses and monorail service from Disney Resort hotels, most days, will begin shuttling Guests around 6:30 a.m. for early dining experiences. Speak to the Disney Resort hotel concierge the day before your dining experience to firm up the details. If you are driving then the Transportation and Ticket Center (Magic Kingdom Park parking lot) should open around 3 hours prior to park opening.

    When you get to Magic Kingdom Park you will see a Cast Member with a clipboard checking Guests for early dining reservations or tours. You will be directed to a line (typically on the left side) and wait until they open the theme park between 7:45 a.m. and 7:55 a.m. just for these Guests. General admission will not begin until the theme park officially opens at 9:00 a.m. if there are no Extra Magic Hours.

    Disney Dad Tip: Once inside, the light crowds provide a perfect opportunity for special photos of Cinderella Castle, buildings on Main Street, U.S.A. and attractions in Fantasyland. Recently, early dining Guests who have finished their meals have been able to jump aboard the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train before the theme park opens and sing “Heigh Ho!" with Doc and the gang. Talk about magical.

    Julie, enjoy making many delicious and Magical Memories!
