    I have a BBB appointment for my niece at 8:10 am in the Magic Kingdom, but the park doesn't open that day until 9 am. What time should we get there, and where should we go to get through those waiting on rope drops?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Teresa. I'm so glad you stopped by with this great question!

     A visit to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is such a fairy tale treat. Your niece is sure to have a magical experience with her Fairy Godmother-in-Training! My niece had an early morning reservation at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique a few years ago when we traveled to the Walt Disney World Resort with our extended family. It was so great that we were able to enjoy her appointment before the park officially opened; the first hour of the day is the best time to experience short wait times, and we were finished with her appointment in time to enjoy those light crowds! An early appointment also meant my niece got to enjoy her royal makeover for the entire day.

     I recommend arriving to Magic Kingdom Park 30-45 minutes prior to your niece's reservation. That should give you enough time to get through security and then check-in with the Cast Member assigned to Guests with early morning reservations. In my experience, that Cast Member has been to the far left of the entrance holding a sign that says "Early Morning Reservations." Simply check-in there, and your family will be on their way to Main Street, U.S.A.! Don't forget to take a moment to snap a family photo in front of Cinderella Castle while there's so few people in the background.

     Has your group purchased Memory Maker? All the Disney PhotoPass photos taken during your niece's appointment at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique are included with the purchase of Memory Maker!

     I hope this was helpful. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
