    Hi Diane 9 more days till our trip i was wondering if we have a reservation at CRT for 9:05 are we able to go in the park before it opens since we have to be early for our reservations or do we have to wait for rope drop? Thank YOu

    Hello Danielle!  I can't believe your trip is just about here!  You didn't mention what day your reservation is so I'm assuming it's on a day when Magic Kingdom opens at 9:00.  Normally, if your reservation is at a time after the park opens, you will need to wait until the park officially opens before entering.  However, you are right, Disney does ask that you arrive at the podium early for check in.  If I were you, I'd plan on being at the Magic Kingdom gates no later than 8:30.  There will be a special line for those with early reservations.  Talk to a cast member there and he/she will advise you on what time you can enter the park.

    OK, have we talked about online check-in in our previous questions?  This is a relatively new feature that can be performed within 10 days of your arrival.  Click on "my disney vacation" in the upper right corner of and then select  "online check-in service."  By doing this now, you will be saving valuable time when you check in at your resort...which means more playing time!

    Have a super magical vacation, Danielle!  Let me know if you have any last minute questions...Diane  :)
