    I just booked WDW 4/16-4/20/13! Yay! My question is I am doing ADR's for breakfast at Cinderella's castle and wondering what time does it usually start and how do you get there? I am assuming its prior to opening. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Jennifer,

    Reservations for breakfast at Cinderella Castle typically start at 8:00 a.m. The opening time for the Magic Kingdom varies, but often this is prior to the official park opening time. If you have an 8:00 reservation and the park is not yet open, there will be a special entrance turnstile with a sign that says "Character Breakfasts." Just go to that turnstile, give your reservation number, and they'll let you into the park.

    There are Disney buses that run early to get guests to character meals. I don't know where you'll be staying, but if you stop by the front desk of your hotel the night before your reservation, they can give you the completely scoop on where/when to grab a bus/boat/monorail to the Magic Kingdom. Some guests may find it more convenient to drive or take a taxi to an early reservation.

    If you have more questions, we're happy to help.
