    Good morning, My 2-year-old, husband, and I have a breakfast reservation at cinderellas round table at 8:45 am Sep. 3rd How early can we enter the park to make sure we get to our reservation on time? Also, will there be characters there? Thank you!

    Royal Greetings, Kimberlin! Welcome to planDisney! 

    You and your family are cordially invited to enjoy a breakfast feast at Cinderella's Royal Table. Since you are Guests of the Princess herself, you can be sure that you'll enjoy a magical morning inside the grand Cinderella Castle to dine on the finest food in the land!

    I just checked the park hours for the date of your reservation, and I see that the official opening of the Magic Kingdom Park is 9:00 a.m. But not to worry, Kimberlin! Your trusted steed will ensure you arrive on time! Typically, Cast Members will allow Guests to enter the Magic Kingdom Park about 45 minutes or so before the posted opening time. Guests who plan to start their day in one of the other lands of the park will be held in the Castle hub area until 9:00, but since you have an early dining reservation, you'll be allowed to head right over to the Castle. Your best bet is to let a Cast Member know you have a reservation when you arrive, and they'll direct you to the check-in location.

    Character dining at the Walt Disney World Resort is still modified at this time, so you likely won't have interaction with the princesses as you would in normal circumstances. However, Cinderella, ever the gracious hostess, has been known to step in for a wave and a quick hello with her Guests, so be sure to keep an eye out for her!

    Kimberlin, I hope your family enjoys the royal treatment at your Castle breakfast. Have a truly magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, and please come see us again if you have any more questions! 

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
