    I have an ADR in the Magic Kingdom at 8:10 AM and there are extra magic hours in the morning on that day, so what is the easiest I can arrive and get into the Magic Kingdom for my ADR?

    Hello Jaime and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Having an early breakfast reservation at the Magic Kingdom will certainly start your day off right! We love arriving early to enjoy a less crowded Main Street U.S.A. 

    When you arrive at the Magic Kingdom entrance look for a Cast Member or overhead sign for Dining Reservations. In my experience, they are typically on the far left of each park entrance. That is the entrance for those with Dining Reservations that are before or near the opening time of the park. The Cast Member there will scan your MagicBand or ticket to check for your reservation time. We typically arrive about 20 minutes before our reservation time and have been allowed in at that time. 

    I hope you have a great day at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    See ya real soon,
