    We have breakfast reservations at Garden Grill at 9:15 a.m. one day of our trip this summer. We will be arriving on the Skyliner through International Gateway. Will we be allowed to enter the park early? If so, what time should we plan to arrive?

    Hi Melissa!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thanks for stopping by with another great question!

    I’m not sure if you’ve been able to experience the new Disney Skyliner yet, but if you haven’t, you are in for a treat! Traveling in this Gondola gives you a beautiful view of the Walt Disney World Resort. Some of the Gondolas are even themed, making this experience even more exciting. I love that the Disney Skyliner will drop you off right at International Gateway at EPCOT, making entry into my favorite theme park easy!

    Garden Grill Restaurant is my family’s favorite place to dine for breakfast. Not only do you get to meet some of your favorite characters such as Chip ‘n’ Dale, Mickey Mouse, and even Pluto, you will get to indulge in a delicious breakfast. Your experience starts with the most decadent cinnamon roll, and the scrambled eggs and Mickey-shaped waffles are so tasty.

    If your dining reservation is not until after EPCOT opens, you likely will not be allowed into the park early. Typically those with dining reservations that begin before theme park opening will only be allowed into the park early. Be sure to stay up to date on theme park hours by downloading the My Disney Experience Mobile app.

    I hope that you enjoy traveling high in the sky as much as I do!
