    Have dining reservations at 8:00 a.m. at Tusker House Restaurant, however, the park does not open until 9:00. How are we granted admission prior to the park opening?

    Hi, Tucker! You are going to love this meal! Since your Advance Dining Reservation is for 8:00 A.M., you'll need to check-in at the restaurant by 7:45 A.M. Plan to arrive at the front gates of the Animal Kingdom by 7:30 A.M. Make sure that you bring your Advance Dining Reservation confirmation number with you.  Once at the gates, the turnstile farthest to the right is designated for Guests such as yourself with early dining reservations.  It is clearly denoted for early entrance into the theme park. The extra time includes the walking time it will take to get to Tusker House because it is located at the rear of Animal Kingdom park in Harambe.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
