    My breakfast reservation is at 8.35 in Tuskers but the park doesn't open until 9am. What do we do? Turn up at the entrance early and they will let us in? Presumably it is quite a hike from entrance to AK to Tuskers so need to build that time in too?

    Hi there Pamela!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!  Donald's Dining Safari at Tusker House Restaurant is a magical way to start your day at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park.  Rest assured, Guests are allowed to enter the park for Advanced Dining Reservations that are prior to regular park opening. When you arrive at the park, simply let a Cast Member know that you have an Advanced Dining Reservation for Tusker House Restaurant.  I would recommend having your Advanced Dining Reservation number on hand, unless you have it linked in your My Disney Experience account. You will be allowed to enter the park in order to make your Advanced Dining Reservation on time. I would allow approximately 10 - 15 minutes for the walk to Tusker House Restaurant. 

    I hope this information is helpful to you. Please don't hesitate to stop by again with any additional questions that you may have as your vacation draws closer. Best wishes for a magical trip, Pamela!

    Bon Appétit,
