    We have breakfast reservations at Be Our Guest at 9:10 a.m. - will they allow us to get in before the park opens at 9:00? I'm worried that we will be late for our reservation if we go in with the crowd waiting for the park to open.

    Hello Amethyst!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    When I book early morning Advanced Dining Reservations to get a good jump on our morning at Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks, I am always a little anxious about arriving to our dining location in time.  Like most planning scenarios, the added nerves are worth it when the result is an Endlessly Magical experience.

    As far as your Advanced Dining Reservations at Be Our Guest are concerned, you should be fine.  With the new Let the Magic Begin Welcome Show at Magic Kingdom, Guests are now granted access to Main Street, U.S.A. up to 25-45 minutes before official park opening.  This means that when you arrive at Magic Kingdom, you should be able to walk down Main Street, U.S.A., browse through some of the open stores, grab a Starbucks Coffee at Main Street Bakery and (depending on how early you want to be for your Advanced Dining Reservation), enjoy the Let the Magic Begin Welcome Show in front of Cinderella Castle at around 8:55 am.

    If there are any Cast Members restricting access to Fantasyland until after Rope Drop (official park opening), simply inform them of your Advanced Dining Reservations at Be Our Guest and they will grant you access to dining location.

    As Lumière might say "Bon Appétit"!
