    If I have breakfast reservations at 930am at Akershus, what is the earliest time I will be allowed into World Showcase?

    Hi Rachel,

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Breakfast at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall is simply wonderful. I am so excited that you were able to get a reservation! 

    We always do early morning breakfast reservations. In my experience, we generally can enter at least 15 minutes prior to our reservation time. On occasion, we have been allowed to enter 30 minutes prior. It sounds like you might be trying to squeeze in a tour of Arendelle on Frozen Ever After before or after that breakfast reservation? 

    We prefer to actually do pre-park opening breakfast reservations so that we can enter the park before the crowds arrive. On our last visit, we had an 8:10 a.m. breakfast reservation at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. We were able to eat and then get in the stand-by line for Frozen Ever After by 9:10 a.m. The wait was no more than 10 minutes! We also hurried over to meet and greet with Anna and Elsa at Royal Sommerhus. It was a fabulous morning!

    While at Epcot, be sure to check out the Voices of Liberty. The performance is short but AMAZING! If you sit on the floor of the rotunda, the sound is just perfect. This performance always gives us a nice air-conditioned break in the midst of our mad dash through the park!

    If you do get into Epcot before it gets crowded, take some magical photos along the way to your breakfast reservation. We love these photos of our girls looking as if they are in their own Walt Disney World wonderland!

    Rachel, I am sending pixie dust your way hoping your breakfast reservation goes well. If you have a princess or prince among you, be sure they each wear their best royal attire. It is not required, but our girls love to dress like royalty!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
