    We have ADR @ MK & DHS before the parks open. Is there a special line or entrance for this? How much earlier than our reservation should we arrive? We have an 8:10 am at the Royal Table for example. Thanks!

    Hey Ashley!  Thanks for visiting the Mom's Panel!  My family has also dined at Character Dining Experiences before official park opening. There is a line that you will want to enter for your early Advanced Dining Reservation. It should be pretty noticeable as you approach the Ticket Turnstiles. There will be a Cast Member asking for guests with Advanced Dining Reservations to enter through a certain area. I would make sure to have your confirmation number with you on both days for your breakfast. I would arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your Advanced Dining Reservation to allow yourself ample time to go through the bag check area, have the cast member find your confirmation number, and go through the Ticket Turnstiles. We have also found this to be a great time to take a few pictures in front of Cinderella Castle or the Sorcerer Mickey Hat when the parks are not crowded.  I hope this information helps!  Please let me know if you have any additional questions that I can assist you with.  Best wishes for a Magical Trip, Ashley!
    Happy Planning,
