    If I book breakfast at Tusker House before the park opens, will the path be open early to wait for the avatar ride?

    Hi Anne,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question. Disney’s Animal Kingdom is an incredible place, filled with so many special touches and gorgeous details. Between rides, shows, incredible shows, and fabulous activities, there’s so much to explore and I know you are going to have a blast!

    Anne, an Advanced Dining Reservation prior to park opening at Tusker House Restaurant will not give you an early entrance to Pandora – The World of Avatar. Tusker House is located in the Africa section of the park, and you will need to head over to Discovery Island and then head toward the pathway that leads to Pandora. That pathway will be blocked by a Cast Member until “rope drop” occurs at park opening. I’ve talked to several people who have tried the Tusker House strategy and found themselves at the backs of crowds because people are sometimes let into Pandora - The World of Avatar area a little bit before rope drop and end up closer to the front of the rope than those who need to finish a meal first.

    Plus, Tusker House is a fabulous breakfast, and you won’t want to rush through it. The characters circulate to your table, so you’d need to wait to meet all of them before wrapping up the meal. I recommend making the Tusker House reservation for a time when you can really enjoy your food and the ambience and characters. Have a glass of Jungle Juice for me - soooo yummy.

    One last tip: keep checking your My Disney Experience app for FastPass+ reservations – you never know when you might get lucky!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
