    CRT @ 8:05am. Will buses get us there early enough f/ AOA? also EMH so MK opens at 8 that day. We need to get in at 7:45 (I assume) to make it to castle on time (and snap a pic on the way lol). Is there a separate line to get in for dining reservations?


    So a few answers for you here, but maybe not in the same order.

    No, there is not a separate line, per se, for people with dining reservations. But what you do, if you have to enter the park before official opening hours to get to your reservation, is go to the extreme left or right of any park entrance. Typically there you will find a host from the restaurant, complete with restaurant uniform on. They can confirm your reservation and let you in. You still scan your tickets at that time, and then you follow a roped path to your dining destination.

    As for getting to your restaurant on time, because the park opens at 8 am that morning, the buses will start at 7 am. So yes, you should get there in plenty of time. I would try to catch the first bus, getting there around 7:30. That gives you time to get your picture taken in front of the castle without all the crowds in the way. 

    HINT: The PhotoPass photographers will already be out and ready to take your picture!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
