    I have an 8 am breakfast reservation at MK on what is now an EMH day. Is there still any benefit to keeping it, like a quicker security line, or getting past the ropes at the Castle even before the 8 am EMH opening?

    Hi Amanda!

    It looks like you may be at Walt Disney World Resort right now! I know you must be having a magical time!!!

    Congratulations on scoring an early morning dining reservation! Those reservations are very popular and can fill up quickly! You will be able to enter the theme park a few minutes prior to opening so you can get to your reservation on time. While the reservation is fantastic, what are your priorities for your time at Magic Kingdom Park?

    You really can't go wrong. Dining experiences at Walt Disney World Resort are great and I know you will enjoy your breakfast. That being said, if you would rather spend time enjoying attractions and then grab a bite to eat later in the day, that's a fabulous option too.

    We love being at the theme parks when they open. We are able to do so much in a short time. It's a great way to maximize every moment of our vacation.

    Have you made your FastPass+ selections yet? If not - be sure to get those set up as that is another fantastic way to maximize your time in the theme parks.

    I'm sorry you are questioning your current plans but I'm thrilled you will have an additional hour in Magic Kingdom when the attractions are open. This is great news! I feel like a kid when I walk down Main Street, U.S.A. at theme park opening. The Cast Members are out waving to us and welcoming us as we walk by. It's the perfect way to start any day!

    I hope this has helped you think about your priorities and how best to plan your day.

    If you have any other questions, please let me know. Thank you so much for your question! Enjoy every magical moment of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
