    My family has reservations for breakfast at 9:05 for Cinderella's Royal Table. We are staying off-site. What time do you recommend we arrive at MK to make it on time? (Won't it take quite a while to even walk through MK to get to Cinderella's castle?)

    Hi Angela!

    I recommend that you arrive at the entrance to the Magic Kingdom parking lot at 8am.  You will still have to park and then walk or take the parking tram to the Transportation and Ticket Center.  Then you will have to take the monorail or a ferry boat to the theme park and go through security.  As you face the theme park, the entrance for guests with early morning reservations is usually on the right, but not always.  By starting your journey at 8am, you won't feel rushed to get down Main Street USA to breakfast.  Be sure to bring your camera and take some photos; it's great having a relatively empty Main Street USA all to your self!

    I hope this helps!  Write back if you have any more questions!
