    Hello! I have a 9:15 am ADR for Akershus. Will they let me into the park through the breakfast line at 8:30? i know I can’t check in at the restaurant until 9:05, but can I entertain park early? Thanks!

    Hi Connie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    How excited you must be for your May vacation! It will be here before you know it.

    Akershus Royal Banquet Hall is such a fun breakfast experience! I have the sweetest memories of each princess interacting with my son. He was very interested in the food, but not so interested in the princesses! I love showing him the pictures we took from that meal, as he hid his face from each visitor, while the princesses all swooned over the "handsome little prince." It was quite entertaining!

    I always show up to the park early for my dining reservations, especially if I need to make my way from the entrance of Epcot to World Showcase. I have never had any trouble getting in early, even before park opening. Should you arrive at 8:30 a.m. for your 9:15 a.m. reservation and they not let you in, I don't think they would make you wait very long. But like I said, I've never had any trouble entering a bit earlier than park opening for an Advance Dining Reservation that is set for a little after park opening.

    Enjoy your time at the Walt Disney World Resort, Connie! Please visit us again with any other questions you may have!
