    I have a breakfast reservation at Hollywood Studios at 8:15am on a day that has morning EMH starting at 8am. Will I need to arrive early enough to get to the front of the entrance line or will I be allowed into the park early to get to my reservation?

    Hi Dare,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We're so glad you stopped by with your dining question. My family loves early breakfast reservations inside the theme parks.

    You'll be happy to know that Guests with dining reservations will be allowed to enter the park early in order to make it to the restaurant on time. Do not feel you have arrive early enough to get to the front of the entrance line. That being said, I would plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your Advanced Dining Reservation. Once you arrive at Disney's Hollywood Studios, be sure to look for the special entrance which will be marked for Guests with early breakfast reservations. If you don't see the designated area, you can ask any Cast Member, and he/she will be happy to direct you to the appropriate entrance. You will need to verify that you have a breakfast reservation so keep your confirmation number handy. In my experience, the timing for when Cast Members release Guests to enter the park has always been subject to change; however, we have always been given ample time to arrive at our dining location without having to rush.

    After breakfast, be sure to head to Toy Story Land where you can Play Big in Andy's Backyard. Slinky Dog Dash has quickly become my new favorite attraction. 

    I hope this information has been helpful to you, Dare. Let us know if you have any additional questions that may arise. We would love to assist you further in planning a magical trip "to infinity and beyond!"

    Happy Planning,
