    Can you enter MK early to eat breakfast at the Main Street bakery before the park opens? Does the Bakery even open before 9 am? We are there the end of August and we all want a cinnamon roll but don't want to waste park time eating in the morning.

    Hi Tara!

    Usually "rope drop" is held just before the tunnels that go under the Main Street Railroad Station.  In other words, guests are usually held inside the turnstiles but unable to enter Main Street until after the park officially opens.  Many years ago, rope drop would be held on occasion at the end of Main Street, but I haven't experienced that in many years.

    Unfortunately, that means you won't be able to get to the Main Street Bakery until the park is officially open.

    The only exceptions to getting into the park early is if you have a advanced dining reservation (ADR) at a Table Service restaurant before the park opens or if you're on an early morning  "behind the scenes" tour.  By the way, having an early morning ADR is a great way to have a nice breakfast and get into the Magic Kingdom early!

    Have a magical vacation!
