    If I have an early morning res (8am) for the Plaza for breakfast, will I be able to get into the park early and get to the rides early? Or will I not be able to get past the hub like everyone else?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Carling!

    Fueling up for a magical day with breakfast at The Plaza Restaurant is a great idea!  Who doesn't love starting their day with Mickey waffles??

    Whether or not you will be able to access areas of Magic Kingdom Park beyond The Plaza Restaurant will depend upon park hours on the day of your visit.  If your reservation time is prior to official park opening, look for signs directing you to the entrance for guests with pre-park opening reservations.  A Cast Member will verify your reservation and can provide further direction.  While Main Street, U.S.A. is open for all guests up to an hour prior to regular park open, walkways to the various lands will be roped off until after the Let the Magic Begin welcome show.

    If you are a Disney Resort Hotel Guest and morning Extra Magic Hours are being offered the day of your visit, you would be allowed access to the available attractions if you finish your meal prior to park open.  If your visit will be on a day with "extra" Extra Magic Hours, you may even be able to enjoy an attraction or two prior to sitting down for breakfast.

    I hope I have answered your questions.  If you have any additional questions, please stop by the Moms Panel again anytime.  We are always happy to help.

    Enjoy your visit!
