    I've already booked a reservation at Donald's Safari breakfast at the Tusker House (Animal Kingdom) for April,10th 8:25am , however the park opens just 9am at this day. How will I enter the park? Is it possible to enter the park afew minutes before 8:25am?

    You must be so excited for your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World!

    The WDW theme parks all offer breakfast reservations prior to the official park opening time. While the attractions will not be open for guests, it is easy to enter the park for your Advance Dining Reservation.

    First, if you are using Disney transportation to the Animal Kingdom, you'll need to board a bus marked "Safari Breakfast" or "Animal Kingdom".

    When you arrive the Animal Kingdom entrance, you'll first pass through Security. After, proceed past the ticket/information booths. You'll want to head to the turnstiles on the far right where a Cast Member will have a clipboard with a list of Tusker House reservations. There should be a sign indicating that the line is for "breakfast".

    I usually bring my confirmation number just in case my reservation isn't on the Cast Member's sheet.

    After the Cast Member verifies your reservation, you'll need to use your admission ticket to gain entrance through the turnstile. A Cast Member will then direct you toward the restaurant located in Harambe, Africa.

    You can enter earlier than your reservation time. As soon as you arrive the park, proceed to the entrance. The walk back to Harambe takes 7-10 minutes. If you arrive early, Tusker House will ask you to have a seat outside at the Dawa Bar until your table is ready.

    Donald's Safari breakfast offers great food and lots of fun.
