    We have an ADR for BOG for 8:40. What is the earliest we can get into MK that morning?

    Hey Jennifer-

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Be our guest, be our guest, put our service to the test … oh come on and sing along with me. This past May, I had 8:05 a.m. early dining reservations at Be Our Guest Restaurant and the food … C'est magnifique!

    Early dining guests should arrive at the main entrance to Magic Kingdom Park about 30 minutes before their reservation. In your case I would be at the gate at 8:10 a.m. in case they let you in earlier than 15 minutes before your reservation time. Guests with 8:05 a.m. reservations (the first ones of the day) will be allowed in between 7:45 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. When you arrive look for Cast Members on the left side of the main gate with signs for “early dining reservations and tours”. You will need to check in with them. They will look for your name on a list before allowing you inside the park. I suggest you print off a copy of your reservation and carry it with you in case your name is not on the list.

    Once in, you will be able to have a more private view of the Main Street, U.S.A, Cinderella Castle and even New Fantasyland. Be sure to take lots of pictures.

    Disney Dad Tip: Try the Croissant Doughnut with Banana Caramel Sauce because it is divine. We split it four ways because it was so rich and delicious.

    Jennifer, enjoy making and eating many Magical Memories!
