    if we get in early for our dining reservation at 8:20am to be our guest, would we be able to ride the rides in fantasy land even if we don’t have the magic hours ticket but it is a magic hours day?

    Hi Melanie!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    There is something very special about entering the theme parks for an early dining reservation.  Remember to take some photos of a somewhat quieter park and enjoy those family photos with no-one else inadvertently wandering into the background!  Also, congratulations on securing a breakfast reservation for Be Our Guest Restaurant.  You will love Beast's castle, it is absolutely enchanting. The breakfast menu looks delicious!  To be sure you make it to your reservation on time, I would arrive at Magic Kingdom Park by no later than around 7.50am, so you can clear the security bag check, and be admitted at the checkpoint that is signposted for "Guests with early dining reservations", usually to the far left, with plenty of time to spare.  If there is a Disney Early Morning Magic - Fantasyland event taking place on the same day as your breakfast reservation, only those guests who have purchased tickets to the event will be permitted to enjoy the rides and attractions in Fantasyland until the regular opening time (usually 9.00am).  You will be asked to show a special event wristband or scan your MagicBand if you enter the line for any rides during this exclusive event.  However, as soon as you have finished your breakfast you are likely to be one of the first in line after 9.00am, as you will still be ahead of most guests who are just entering the park.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort.
