    We have 2 dining reservations that get us into the Magic Kingdom and Epcot before the park opens, how do we get into the park to get to our breakfast?

    Hi Nina,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like you've made some fantastic plans for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I love having breakfast reservations at an in-park restaurant before the park opens. It's just a different feeling walking into a park before most of the day guests. We have gotten some fantastic photos but we also just enjoy strolling through a quieter park. 

    You didn't mention if you are planning to stay at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel or somewhere off-site. If you are staying at an on-property hotel, there is generally early transportation to the parks for these early dining reservations. If you are unsure, check with the Lobby Concierge at your resort to determine your best method of early transportation. 

    When you arrive at the park for an early dining reservation, there will always be a Cast Member checking people in. Sometimes this Cast Member has a tablet or a clipboard with a list of early reservations. A line of people will form. Don't worry if the line seems long because it usually moves quickly. Before you know it you will be on your way to your reservation. 

    Nina, thank you for visiting us with your question. I hope you will let us know if you have any other planning questions!
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
