    We have breakfast reservation at 8:40am at Donald's Dining Safari Breakfast at Tusker House Restaurant, Animal kingdom. How early do they allow you to enter the park. If we are staying at POP hotel when should we leave the hotel? thanks

    Dear Jessica,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about planning for your Advanced Dining Reservation at Tusker House Restaurant for breakfast!

    I always advise leaving at least 90 minutes before your Advanced Dining Reservation inside a park, so if you head out of your room around 7 or 7:15am, you should have more than enough time to get there. Once you arrive at the entrance to Disney's Animal Kingdom, you should look for Cast Members who will be directing those guests with Advanced Dining Reservations before park opening. Follow their directions and you will be on your way to your delicious breakfast with Safari Donald Duck and friends before you can say "Mickey waffle!"

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
