    We have a 9:20 breakfast reservation for Be Our Guest restaurant in December. Will we have to wait for the park to open to go to our reservation, or can we enter early? If so, how early? Thanks!

    Hi Elizabeth!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Be Our Guest Restaurant is such a beautiful place to dine.  The Christmas decor that time of year will make it even more special!

    Cast Members do allow guests to enter the park for early dining reservations.  Generally, the park opens at 9 a.m. (unless there are Extra Magic Hours that morning at Magic Kingdom). Since your reservation is at 9:20, it is a good idea for you to try and enter early.

    When you arrive at the Magic Kingdom gates, simply ask a Cast Member where the early dining entrance is located. I think they will let you in as early as 8:30-8:45 (possibly earlier ... it never hurts to try).  I have had a reservation at 9:15 before and was able to enter at 8:30.  It's a great time to grab some photos without the big crowds!

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
