    We have a breakfast reservation at 8:40 am at magic kingdom however we are staying off site. How do we enter the park?

    Hi there Kerry! From one New Yorker to another, welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with your question, I'm thrilled to help! Can you believe your trip to Walt Disney World Resort is almost here? You are sure to make awesome memories at The Most Magical Place on Earth.

    Indulging in dining experiences at Walt Disney World Resort is an absolute delight for me. My family and I look forward to it every visit. 

    All guests (even those staying off-site) can make Disney World dining reservations. Unlike some perks offered exclusively to those staying on-site at a Disney World hotel (such as the Early Theme Park Entry), advance dining reservations are available to all guests, regardless of where you're staying. Park admission is required for in-park dining. You must have valid theme park admission (and a Disney Park Pass reservation for select ticket types) for the location of your meal. So, if you're dining at the Jungle Skipper Canteen, you'll need to have the proper tickets to enter Magic Kingdom Park for the date of your meal.

    To enter the park you will simply scan your MagicBand or use your Disney MagicMobile Service. Disney MagicMobile service is a feature of the My Disney Experience app. This app feature offers quick and easy access to select theme park and Disney Resort hotel amenities through an eligible iPhone, Apple Watch or Android phone. Once you enter the park, you can head straight to your dining reservation.

    I hope this information helps you prepare for an exciting visit to Walt Disney World Resort, Kerry! Thank you again for visiting planDisney. We'll see ya real soon!
