    Hello moms , I have a breakfast reservation at 8:30 at tusker house AK but i noticed that the park opens at 9 and I am not staying at a disney resort , so can i still enter the park before the actual opening time or should i change the reservation?

    Hi, there!

     Nour, your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just around the corner. How exciting! You will love having breakfast with Mickey Mouse and his pals at Tusker House Restaurant. You'll find traditional breakfast favorites like Mickey waffles, and African-inspired dishes like Beef Bobotie - YUM! Did I mention the fresh Jungle Juice? What a perfect way to start the day at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park!

     I am pleased to tell you that you do not need to change the time of your reservation. An early morning reservation means you get to enter Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park before the park opens for the day! I suggest you plan on arriving to the park at 8:00 AM. You will see signage at the park entrance for Guests with breakfast and tour reservations. The friendly Cast Members there will check your reservation and then direct you into the theme park. 

     Arriving to the park by 8:00 AM will give you some extra time to walk to Tusker House Restaurant for your 8:30 AM reservation. This is the perfect time to snap a family photo in front of the Tree of Life and enjoy the unique sights and sounds of Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park

     After you have enjoyed a delicious breakfast, I suggest heading straight for Kilimanjaro Safaris, which is just a short walk away from Tusker House Restaurant. The animals are usually most active in the morning, so it's the perfect time for a safari adventure!

     In the evening, don't miss nighttime entertainment like Tree of Life Awakenings - it's unforgettable!

     Thanks for stopping by, Nour!
