    Hello Moms and Dads, I have an 8:30am reservation for BOG on Tuesday May 16. MK is hosting a Disney Early Morning Magic extra ticket event that day. Will I be able to enter the park early, to get to my reservation, without buying the extra ticket? TY

    Hello Steven!  Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Steven, you have combined two of my favorite things when planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation: booking Advanced Dining Reservations for Be Our Guest Restaurant and maximizing your time before the Walt Disney World Resort Theme Park officially opens.

    The Disney Early Morning Magic - Fantasyland Special Event will be in full swing when you arrive at Magic Kingdom. When you arrive at the main gates of Magic Kingdom, look for signs that indicate entrance for Advanced Dining Reservations (in my experience, the far left next to Newsstand Store) or ask a Cast Member for directions. Entering will allow you to head up Main Street, U.S.A. and toward Beast's Enchanted Castle in Fantasyland. Those who have entered as part of the Early Morning Magic Special Event will be identified with a special sticker that they use (with their regular ticket or MagicBand) to access the activities included in that event, similar to how your MagicBand or Advanced Dining Reservations grant access to Be Our Guest.

    Along the way, be prepared to inform Cast Members covering the Early Morning Magic Special Event that you have reservations for Be Our Guest and they will grant you passage toward your magical dining experience.

    As you are not taking part in any of the extra activities that the Extra Morning Magic offers, you do not need to purchase a ticket for the event. After your enchanted breakfast, attractions in and around Fantasyland should be open to all guests after 9 a.m.. If you do not have a FastPass+ for Seven Dwarves Mine Train, I recommend you get in line as soon as you finish your breakfast.

    Have a Magical Experience!
