    Hi! we have ADR at Tusker at 8 am, on a day that the park opens at 8. At what time should we get to Animal Kingdom to have enough time to get to the restaurant by 7h45? Thank you! :)

    Ah, you have a great dining reservation for your Disney vacation!  My family loves breakfast at Tusker House and it is such a great way to start your day in the park!

    If you wish to be at the restaurant by 7:45 I suggest you be starting your walk through the entrance gates at 7:30am.  This restaurant is located in the back of the park near the Safari attraction in the Africa section so it is a little bit of a walk.  You don't want to be rushing and stressing to start your day so give yourself the 15 minutes to make it to your destination.

    When you arrive by bus or car you will go to the entrance gates. Guests likely will be lined up ready for the opening but since you have an early Advanced Dining Reservation you will need to go to the far right. Here a cast member will check you in and allow you to enter before the park officially opens. Do NOT stand in the regular queue lines or you will miss your time.  Once you enter head either right or left and walk until you get to the famous Tree of Life. Take a left and follow that path across a bridge and Tusker House will be on your left. Again cast members will direct you to where you will need to check-in.
