    we have cp reservation for 915am in magic kingdom. although the park is set to open at 9am can we still get in earlier than park opening?

    Hi Lorrie,

    Yes, with early morning Advanced Dining Reservations, you can enter the park prior to the official opening. Since your reservations are for 9:15, you'll want to be checking in at the podium at the Crystal Palace no later than 9:00. Taking into consideration the walk down Main Street and pausing for a few photos while the park is quiet, I suggest getting to the gates by 8:45 or so. Once there, head to the far right hand turnstile. It will be specifically marked for early entry into the park for guests with dining reservations. Be sure to bring your confirmation number with you.

    Have a wonderful vacation,
