    I was able to get an 8:20 ADR for Tusker House. Will we be allowed into the park before opening time at 8am or will we have to hurry to get there?

    Hi Jaycee!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am jealous!  Donald's Safari Breakfast at Tusker House is our favorite breakfast at Walt Disney World, and the one meal that is a "must-do" on every trip!

    When you arrive at Animal Kingdom, find a cast member and let them know when your reservation is.  They may allow you to go ahead and enter to find your way back to Tusker House.  But no worries!  Even if you don't enter until 8 a.m., you can still easily get to the restaurant by your reservation time.  

    I am assuming your reservation falls on a day that Animal Kingdom has morning Extra Magic Hours and opens at 8 a.m.  Generally, the park doesn't open until 9 a.m.  In that case, you would definitely find a cast member to let you in early for your reservation.  You can find Animal Kingdom park hours at this link.

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
