    I have a 9:45 breakfast reservation for Tusker House. Will I be able to get into the park early and wait until the rides open to get on Flight of Passage before it gets too busy?

    Hi Cody!

    Tusker House Restaurant in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is one of my favorite character dining experiences!  I love the traditional food offerings as well as the African flavors on the buffet.  I'm a picky eater, so it's a great way for me to try new things.

    It looks like Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park opens at 9:00AM when you'll be visiting.  Typically guests with reservations before the park opens are the only ones who are allowed in the park early to go eat and not to head to an attraction.  Since your reservation is 45 minutes after park opening, you'll likely not be allowed to enter early.  My suggestion is to get to the park extra early and be among the first guests in line to enter the park and head straight for Pandora - The World of Avatar to get in the standby queue for Avatar Flight of Passage where you'll be whisked away on the back of a banshee in the Valley of Mo'ara .  Many Disney Parks Moms Panelists use this strategy when visiting and fly in and out in less than 20 minutes.  There is a back entrance/exit to Pandora - The World of Avatar which will take you on a lovely walking path right to Tusker House Restaurant afterwards.

    I highly recommend visiting Pandora - The World of Avatar after dark to see the amazing bioluminescent forest of this land.  It's beautiful!

    Have a magical day!
