    Hello, So excited booked WDW in July and have reservations @ MK for 8am CRT. I'm wondering if we finish breakfast early do they allow guest to ride any of the rides in Fanstasy Land? And, how early can I go into the park for an 8 am reservation

    Hi Claudia! Getting an early dining reservation for the parks means you are up early and out the door but it does give you the best chance to hit the parks before the masses start coming mid morning.

    When you have an early reservation at the parks such as the Magic Kingdom you will need to find the dining check-in location at the entrances. For the Magic Kingdom it is located to the far left and there will be cast members there checking off your names and sending you to the correct location for early entrance. Only those guests with confirmed dining reservations will be allowed to that point. You will then wait there with other guests and at the time determined which is often 7:45am these guests may enter. They have now begun a new early entrance for everyone to enjoy Main Street so all of this might be altered in the future. No matter what you will be allowed entrance to make it to your dining that morning.

    Unfortunately, if you rush through your breakfast it will not mean you can get a head start on other guests and start riding the attractions. They will open only at park opening time. What it can allow you to do is to get yourself in a better position to be near front of the lines for those popular rides. As we always say, the early guests get the shorter lines!
