    We have a 7:20am Chef Mickey's reservation on a day when Magic Kingdom opens at 9:00am. Are we able to get into MK prior to the 9:00 opening if it's not an Extra Magic day? So excited - we rebooked from Feb 09 up to Nov 08 and are so excited! :) Thanks!

    Chef Mickey's is at the Contemporary Resort which is only about a 10 minute walk from the Magic Kingdom.  Since the breakfast buffet usually takes about 45 minutes to complete, you will have some time to spare before heading to the Magic Kingdom.  You won't be able to get into the Park until it opens to the public at 9am.

    I would recommend visiting the Grand Floridian and the Polynesian.  Both resorts are on the monorail and depending when you go in November they may have their holiday decorations up. 

    I would still try to get to the Magic Kingdom about 15 minutes before it opens.  There is a park opening ceremony that you and your family are sure to enjoy.

I have been fortunate enough to be on the Walt Disney World Moms Panel since 2008.  As a Disney World enthusiast, I can’t imagine a greater opportunity.  My husband, our 6-year-old daughter, and I visit WDW a few times a year.
