    We have early dining reservations for The Plaza at 7:55 with park opening at 9:00. Where do we go to get in early? Do we wait in line for security/bag check or go somewhere separately first?

    Howdy, Stacy!
    Thanks so much for stopping by and asking us a question. We're here to help with any of your Disney planning needs.

    That early Advanced Dining Reservation you've secured is wonderful. You'll be able to enjoy your breakfast before the park officially opens, which means magical pictures on Main Street USA with hardly any guests in the background. 

    Once you arrive at the Magic Kingdom, you will go through security either before you board the boat or Monorail, or at the entrance of the Magic Kingdom. It depends on where you are coming from that morning. Once you're all done with security, you tap your MagicBand or Admission Card and wait out front of the park for a Cast Member to direct you into the park. In the past, they have held up a sign notifying all Advanced Dining Reservations guests where to stand and wait until they escort you into the park. 

    I would suggest arriving at the Magic Kingdom entrance no later than 7:30am that morning. This will give you plenty of time to make it through security and be in the correct waiting area for breakfast. 

    Stacy, I hope this helps to give you a better idea of where you'll need to be that morning. If you have more questions about the menu at The Plaza or what to expect at Rope Drop, just stop by and visit with us again soon.
