    I have confirmed a reservation for Akershus Royal Banquet Hall on 08/21/12 for breakfast at 8:20 am. I noticed later that Epcot doesn't open until 09:00 am. I am concerned that we won't be able to get into the park to make our reservation. Is this a issue?

    Hi Bruce!! 

    This such a wonderful question that many people have!

    This will not be a problem at all.  All you will need to do is go up to the Epcot ticket turnstiles and let the Cast Member know that you have an Advance Dining Reservation for Akershus.  They will let you right in to head to the restaurant.  Please keep in mind that theme park admission is required to enjoy the restaurant.

    I would recommend being at the Epcot turnstile by 7:30-7:40am.  It will take you about 15 minutes to walk to the restaurant in Norway.  This will give you enough time to get back to the restaurant and let you check in a few minutes early.  I would also recommend you bring printed confirmation of your reservation just in case the Cast Member questions it.  

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions!!!

    Wishing you a magical trip!!
