    Going to AK 9/20/13. Made ADR at Tusker house at 8:30am so we could be in before park opened then they added morning EMH. Since the park opens at 8:00 do you think we will have time to do any one attraction before going to our reservation? If so, which one


    While it does sound nice, I would worry about cutting things a bit close. What makes it more frustrating is that you always seem to be standing around a while in the courtyard outside the restaurant waiting to be called. 

    Part of the problem is what attractions you might be able to pull off in time. Maybe you could walk the nearby animal trail in Africa. But you would be rushing an otherwise amazing and interesting experience. Certainly the larger attractions like the Safari would surely end up taking you past the time they would ask for you to check in prior to your meal, meaning you either miss your reservation and they delay your table for a while, or cancel it all together. 

    BOTTOM LINE: I would say no. Instead take some time to enjoy the animal enclosures in the Oasis as you enter the park, and even do some window shopping on Discovery Island and in the nearby stores in Africa. 

    Have a magical vacation!
