    This is our first time to Disneyworld and we have a reservation for the princess breakfast at Cinderella's Castle at 8:30 am, but the park doesn't open until 9:00. I'm assuming they open the gates earlier for the breakfast, what time should we be there?

    Hi Annette -

    Congrats on your first Disney vacation!

    You are correct that you are able to enter the park earlier for your breakfast reservation. When you get to the main entrance of the Magic Kingdom, you'll find an area marked "character breakfasts". As long as you have an advance reservation, you'll be able to get in early. I'd recommend that you arrive at that main entrance around 8:10am.

    Keep in mind that if you drive, you'll need to park at the Ticket and Transportation Center, and take the monorail or boat over to the Magic Kingdom. In that case, I'd recommend that you plan to park your car around 7:30am.

    Have a great vacation!
