    We have an ADR at CP at 8:40am when the park opens at 9am. We will be driving to the park that morning, what time do you recommend we arrive to make sure we have time to park, purchase tickets and get into the park with time for a few pictures on Main St?

    Lisa in my experience earlier is better!

    Arrive around 7:15 am if possible. The parking lot and Ticket and Transportation Center(TTC) will not be crowded this early so you might be able to zip through but there are multiple steps so allow yourself plenty of time. You will need to park, catch a tram to the TTC, purchase tickets, board a monorail or boat to the Magic Kingdom, go through the turnstile, take pictures, and walk to Cinderella's Royal Table in time for your reservation. If lines are short and everything goes quickly you will have extra time to snap some pics in the nearly empty park. Much better than being stressed and dashing down Main Street to make your breakfast time. 

    Enjoy your royal meal!
