    We have CRT 8:15 am ADR in April!!! When will MK allow us entry as they open at 9? I want to get their as early as possible just to see if they'd let us in right away instead of having to wait until 8:15 :) Hoping to be in new fantasyland by 9...

    Hi, Rosalie!

    I love that you are so excited for your upcoming reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table in April! It really is such an extra-special experience to be able to see that beautiful castle from then on and say "we ate there!" Plus, the experience inside the castle is magical as well. I'm so excited for you!

    Regarding your early entrance into Magic Kingdom, get there as early as you'd like! Tours even earlier than Guests with Advanced Dining Reservations, so Cast Members will be happy to allow you to enter Magic Kingdom well in advance of your ADR. I suggest that you be at the park gate, through bag check already, no later than 8 a.m. If you can arrive a little earlier, I would do so, as you'll want to pause for photos on a very empty Main Street U.S.A., with the jaw-dropping Cinderella Castle as your perfect backdrop before you dine. Check-in at the restaurant should ideally take place 10 minutes prior to your reservation, and you'll want to stroll up Main Street at that hour, taking in the beauty of Magic Kingdom before it's open to the general masses.

    Be sure to tell your server once you are seated that you'd like to be finished your meal as soon as possible, with the New Fantasyland expansion as your goal by 9. If at all possible, your server will keep that in mind and help you get through this special experience without worrying about rushing you.

    Have a wonderful trip, Rosalie! Be sure to send more questions as you think of them; we love to help!
