    We have an ADR at Be Our Guest for 8:00. What time should we plan to arrive at the park?

    Hello, Rachel!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Congratulations!  I am thrilled to read that you have secured a Be Our Guest Restaurant reservation!  You are going to love this dining experience.  The atmosphere is breathtaking and the food is delicious!  How can I sum this experience up with just one word?  MAGICAL!

    I would arrive at the Magic Kingdom no later than 7:30 in the morning.  If the park is not yet open to guests, simply head on over to the touch point that may have a sign that reads "dining" or "reservations."  A Cast Member will give you access into the park, with your park admission ticket, at least 15 minutes prior to your reservation time.

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  Do not forget to visit Gaston's Tavern later on in the day.  You MUST try the warm cinnamon role.  I must admit that this pastry is always on my "must do" list with every Walt Disney World vacation.  

    Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"

    ~Diane G.
