    My family has a dining reservation at CRT at 8:10 am before the park opens. When will we be able to enter the Magic Kingdom? And is there a special entrance for people with dining reservations before the park opens?

    Hi Andrea,

    Woo Hoo!  Let's hear it for breakfast with Cinderella!  I am a big fan of having Advanced Dining Reservations in the theme parks before the official opening time.  My family feels it is a real treat to enter Magic Kingdom before the rest of the Guests and we always pause at the end of Main Street, USA to have our photo taken with Cinderella Castle behind us.  Since there are relatively few people in Magic Kingdom at this time it feels like we have it to ourselves.

    Guests with early breakfast reservations inside the theme parks enter through a specially marked entrance.  When you approach Magic Kingdom look for signs which say something like "Breakfast Entrance" or if not readily apparent to you ask a nearby Cast Member where to go.  When it is time to begin admitting Guests with early breakfast reservations a Cast Member at the entrance will verify your reservation and admit you to Magic Kingdom with enough time to check in at Cinderella's Royal Table.  Personally I like to have my family at the special breakfast entrance about 45-60 minutes prior to our reservations.  The exact time Guests with early breakfast reservations will be admitted can vary but rest assured you will be admitted with plenty of time to walk to your restaurant.

    Have a Magical Adventure Andrea!  Your vacation will be here before you know it.
