    Can our family enter the Disney World parks BEFORE when it says it opens (not the extended park hours) for an early breakfast or morning stroll etc.?

    Hey, FU! You bet you can enter the parks before they open to the general public. To pull it off, make an advance dining reservation in a theme park at a time prior to its opening. Granted, park admission is required, but once you go through the turnstiles, you'll have a virtually empty park to stroll through on your way to breakfast.

    We love doing this because the photo ops are incredible. With hardly anyone in the park, you can get a shot of the family on Main Street with Cinderella Castle in the background and NO ONE ELSE in the shot. Cast members will be in the park and will hook your family up by taking your photo.

    Our favorites are Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom, Donald's Safari Breakfast in Animal Kingdom, Akershus in Epcot, and Play 'n Dine at Hollywood & Vine in Hollywood Studios.
