    We have breakfast reservations at Be Our Guest for 10 minutes before the park opening time, so I'm assuming we will be allowed to enter early if we show proof of our reservation at the gate. In this scenario, how early should we arrive at the park?

    Hello there, Jennifer! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks for stopping on by and asking your Walt Disney World Resort vacation question! 

    Get ready for a beast of a good time during your breakfast experience at Be Our Guest Restaurant! This is actually one of my top spots for an early morning bite to eat before spending the day at Magic Kingdom. I absolutely love making early reservations prior to the official opening time! Doing so gives us the opportunity to explore the front of the park a bit and, of course, take some amazing pictures in front of Cinderella's Castle! 

    Generally, I prefer to enter Magic Kingdom at least 30 minutes before our reservation time. This gives us the opportunity to walk back to New Fantasyland and take a few pictures along the way. We've never had any problem entering this early but results may vary! 

    Be sure to use this opportunity to take some excellent family photos! Since only a handful of Guests will be admitted to Magic Kingdom before the standard operating hours, the majority of Main Street, USA will be free and clear which can make it the perfect setting for those memorable pictures. There also tends to be a few Disney PhotoPass photographers in front of Cinderella's Castle to help capture those shots!

    I hope you have an absolutely magical experience during your early morning breakfast! Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you!
