    We have a BOG ADR for 8:15 on a day the park opens at 9. We booked so we can go in early to get photos. With the new opening show at the castle so everyone can now enter at 8 do we no longer get that perk? When can early ADRs enter?

    Hi Andrea! Starting your day at Be Our Guest is a perfect plan for a Magic Kingdom visit. Inside is so magical and it will be fun to tour all of the dining rooms before you head outside to tackle the attractions.

    The new opening for the Magic Kingdom has many guests feeling a bit confused. Since the railroad is under refurbishment they have started a new opening show at the castle. I believe they also felt by letting guests in early to the Main Street area this would help alleviate the crowding at the turnstiles each day. Guests can disperse and wander the street and shops while waiting for the opening.

    I can understand why you are disappointed that you might not get that perfect picture with the castle in the background now. With your dining time being 8:15 there is still a chance. Be at the entrance by 7:30 and check in on the left side where you will see cast members with notepads. Most likely they will allow you to line up and enter araound 7:45 before the mass crowds by a few minutes. Take advantage of this and get those pictures quickly. Obviously I can't promise this but this is your best chance. Good luck for the best photo ever!
