    I have breakfast reservations at tusker house for 9:10am 3/11 but I see the park doesn't open untill 9:00 am I gonna be able to get in the park and find the restaurant in 10 minutes. First trip so I have no idea where tusker is or how long to get there.

    Hakuna Matata!

    Let me reassure you that you can indeed have "no worries" about your Advance Dining Reservation at Tusker House. Donald and his friends make it very easy to join them for breakfast!

    The WDW theme parks all offer breakfast reservations prior to the official park opening time. While the attractions will not be open for guests, it is easy to enter the park for your Advance Dining Reservation.

    First, if you are using Disney transportation to the Animal Kingdom, you'll need to board a bus marked "Safari Breakfast" or "Animal Kingdom". I would recommend arriving your bus stop at 8:00 a.m.

    When you arrive the Animal Kingdom entrance, you'll first pass through Security. Next, proceed past the ticket/information booths. You'll want to head to the turnstiles on the far right where a Cast Member will have a clipboard with a list of Tusker House reservations. There should be a sign indicating that the line is for "breakfast".

    I usually bring my confirmation number just in case my reservation isn't on the Cast Member's sheet.

    After the Cast Member verifies your reservation, you'll need to use your admission ticket to gain entrance through the turnstile. A Cast Member will then direct you toward the restaurant located in Harambe, Africa. There will be other guests headed that way. Along the route, Cast Members will be available to direct you.

    You can enter the Animal Kingdom earlier than your reservation time. As soon as you arrive the park, proceed to the entrance. The walk back to Harambe takes 7-10 minutes. If you arrive the restaurant early, the Tusker House host will ask you to have a seat outside at the Dawa Bar until your table is ready.

    Donald's Safari breakfast offers great food and lots of fun. On your walk to Tusker House, enjoy the beautiful scenery!
