    We have BBB appt at 9:10 for my DD at the MK Castle (on day the park opens at 9). What time should we plan on leaving POFQ (using the bus system)? They said to be there 15 mins prior to appt. I assume we will be able to enter the park prior to opening?

    Hi Jennifer,

    I would recommend leaving your resort by 8:10.  It is always better to get there a little bit earlier than it is to be late.  You should try to be at the front gate of the Magic Kingdom by 8:45.  There will be a castmember at the front with a list of all guests who have Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique reservations and/or breakfast reservations in the park.  You will need to give the castmember your name and your reservation number.  They will then let you swipe your park ticket and enter the Magic Kingdom before the rest of the guests.

    I once had a breakfast reservation at the Animal Kingdom around the same time the park opened.  We ended up running late and arriving at park right when it opened.  I had to wait in long line and ended up being 15+ minutes late for my reservation.   If I been there five minutes earlier I would have been allowed to enter before everyone else.  Try not to make the same mistake I made.

    Have a great time
