    We have a booking at Tusker House at 8:05am and the park opens at 9am. Do we go to the main park entrance? And what time do we get to the park to get to our reservation on time?

    Hello, Cara!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Tusker House Restaurant is one of my favorite character dining experiences and even better that you scored a pre-opening reservation! That means you can get some great pictures of a near empty Discovery Island as you make your way to the restaurant in Africa. Once you arrive at admission gates of Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, there will be a designated line (usually to the right of the Mickey touch points) for Guests with early dining reservations. Once a Cast Member verifies your dining reservation, you will gain entry to the park. To ensure you have plenty of time get through security/bag check area/entrance area and walk to the restaurant, I suggest arriving at least 30 minutes or so before your reservation. I hope this helps and you enjoy your breakfast. Please let us know if you have additional questions!

    Wishing you and your family a magical vacation!
