    Hi Moms! will we still be able to get in before the park opens if our breakfast reservation is for 8:25? We had planned this particular meal specifically for the chance to get into MK when it was "quiet" ...

    Hi Heather,

    The Magic Kingdom usually opens at 9:00am, except on Extra Magic Hours mornings. If your reservation is for 8:25am, I recommend that you be at the gates to the park no later than 8:00am. This will allow you time to get to your reservation and get checked in. The Magic Kingdom is especially beautiful early in the morning before the crowds arrive. Due to that, you may want to get there around 7:45am which would allow time to stroll down Main Street without crowds and pause for photos of Cinderella Castle without people behind you. Keep in mind that the shops and rides will be closed, but it is really a neat opportunity to enjoy the park when it's peaceful. Be sure to bring your Advanced Dining Reservation confirmation number with you. They may ask for it at the turnstiles.

    Wishing you a wonderful vacation! Please let me know if I can assist you further,
