    We have a ADR for Tusker House 9:25. They say you should arrive for your reservation at the podium 15 minutes early. Since the park opens at 9:00 will they let us into the park early to get there on time or will we have to wait until the gates open?

    Hi Anna! Yes, you can gain early access to the Animal Kingdom. If you plan to arrive at the podium by 9:10am, you'll want to be at the front gate by 8:50. Once you approach the turnstiles, head to the far right. You'll see one marked specifically for "Breakfast Reservations", be sure to have your confirmation number with you.

    The Tusker House is located near the far back corner of the Park, so you'll want at least 15-20 minutes for the leisurely stroll back there. Keep in mind that while none of the attractions will be open prior to Park opening, you will see birds and more along the way. Cast Members will be directing you back towards breakfast.

    You will love Donald's Safari Breakfast at the Tusker House! The food is delicious and the character interaction is fantastic. It's really fun to see them in their safari gear. Be sure to try a glass of "Jungle Juice", it's great!

    Have a wonderful vacation,
