    I booked CP for 8:05am on 12/19 180+ days ago. I was thrilled to score pre-park opening ADR. Disney just changed the park hours that whole week to 8am. What time will they let us in? Will I have to wait until 8am when the park opens? So sad this happened.

    Hi, Holly! Don't let this ruin your fun! You can still get in before everyone else.  You are asked to arrive 10 minutes before your reservation.  That is 7:55.  You can get in fifteen to twenty minutes before your arrival time.  I would be ready to enter about 7:35 if I were you.  When you arrive at the gates, just look for the designated spot that is allowing early entry. It should have clear signage, but if you don't see it, ask a Cast Member to point you in the right direction.  Make sure that you have access to your confirmation number for your Advance Dining Reservation in case it is needed to verify early entry.  There is nothing like being in the theme parks before they open to get a couple of fabulous pictures without other Guests in the background, and you'll still be able to do that. Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
