    I have an ADR at 8am at the Plaza in MK when open is at 9am. Recognizing the opening procedures will allow guests into the park beginning at 8am, I'm hopeful that I can get in about 7:45? Can we get past the castle for pics and line up prior?

    Hi Todd,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just around the river bend! You must be getting excited. I'm having a bit of spring fever and a visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth might be the cure. I'm sure the weather in Florida will be a nice respite for you from a Wisconsin winter!

    With an 8 A.M. reservation at The Plaza Restaurant, you should be able to enter Magic Kingdom Park just a bit early. It will take a few minutes to enter the park and walk down Main Street, U.S.A. to the restaurant. Unfortunately, you will not be able to go past Cinderella Castle. The pathways to go further into the park will be roped off until park opening time. A Cast Member will be stationed on each path to lower the rope and let people past at the opening time. Hopefully, you will be able to get a good photo of the front of Cinderella Castle before you go to The Plaza Restaurant for your breakfast reservation. 

    Todd, thank you for visiting us with your question. I hope you will let us know if we can help you with any other planning questions! 
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
