    If I have an early restaurant reservation during early morning Magic hours but I am not staying on site at a Disney resort, will I be able to get into park?

    Hey, Lucia! I am so glad you were able to score an early morning breakfast reservation! I actually really loved these pre-park opening meals when our daughters were little. They gave us a great way to enjoy a delicious breakfast and spend some time with our favorite Disney characters, while still being able to enjoy the first few hours after park opening with lower crowds. It was a total win-win!

    Even though the park will be open early for Disney Resort Hotel guests to enjoy Extra Magic Hours, you will still be able to enter the park to make your breakfast reservation. Just be sure to have your dining reservation confirmation number handy when you arrive at the park. You will see a Cast Member near the entrance of the park, holding a sign indicating the designated entry point. You will also find Cast Members nearby checking guests in with their confirmation numbers. Once you are checked in, just scan your Disney Theme Park Ticket and follow the Cast Member's directions for the best path to take to the dining location.

    I hope this information helps you plan for your pixie-dusted adventure at Walt Disney World Resort! Thanks so much for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions.
