    We have a dining reservation for The Garden Grill at Epcot at 8:25, the park opens at 9:00. How do we get into the park before it opens to make it to breakfast?

    Hi Jessica!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Your trip is coming up in just a few weeks.   Are you too excited to sleep already?  I know I zoom all around my house like Dash when I have a trip coming up.   I hope you and your crew have an amazing vacation.

    My mouth is water thinking about the delicious breakfast at Garden Grill Restaurant.   In fact I just asked my 14 year old daughter where her favorite spot to eat at Walt Disney World is and she said "the breakfast at EPCOT with Chip and Dale".  We enjoy breakfast at this fun location on each trip we take.   Jessica, just a warning you may have to ask for seconds on Chip's Sticky Bun Bake because it's so yummy that it disappears very quickly.   I hope you enjoy this meal as much as my family does.   

    You will have no problem getting into the park early for your reservation time.  When you get to the entrance for EPCOT you will see a line for early morning dining and tour reservations,  simply go to that line and the Cast Member will scan your admission and ask for your name.   They will look up your reservation and let you in the park to head to your meal.   I always bring along the confirmation number just in case the Cast Member has any trouble finding the reservation.   Isn't that simple?   

    Once again, please enjoy your trip and let us know if we can answer any other questions before you depart on your magical journey.   It's always fun to lend a helping hand to fellow Guests.

    Dream as Dreamers Do,
