    If we have a 9:00 am appointment for the Pirate's League in Magic Kingdom, can we enter the park early -- so as to arrive 15 minutes early for our appointment (as it says is required)? Or should we schedule a later appointment?

    Ahoy, Joseph! 

    Fear no more, matey! This Old Salt will help you get to The Pirates League in time! 

    Planning for an early appointment at Magic Kingdom Park can indeed be a fun puzzle, as you have to go through security and enter the Theme Park before getting to your appointment. All Cast Members know that, and they do their best so that you can be on time for your fantastic transformation inside Magic Kingdom Park. 

    My best advice to help you get your little buccaneer to The Pirates League in time is to arrive at this Theme Park at 8:30 a.m. and talk to a Cast Member at the entrance. That means that you should probably plan to arrive at the Ticket and Transportation Center by 7:50 a.m. if you're driving. This time frame will give you time to park your galley and take the ferry boat or the Monorail to get to Magic Kingdom Park

    I've had early appointments at Theme Parks before (like a yummy breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant, for example), and I was always allowed to enter so that I could get there in time. I'm sure good winds will help you sail smoothly to Adventureland, Joseph!

    May the magic be with you,
