    We have an 8:00am Be our Guest reservation on a day when MK opens at 9:00. What is the earliest they will let us into the park to get there by 8:00 and where do we go after security bag checks to get in early? Thanks!

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Aimee. We're so glad you stopped by!

     An early-morning breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant is my absolute favorite way to begin a day at Magic Kingdom Park. Well done getting that reservation! I know you're going to love dining in Beast's enchanted castle. 

     I would plan on arriving to the park entrance by 7:30 AM for your 8:00 AM reservation. Once you're through the security checkpoint, you'll see a Cast Member standing with an early-morning reservations sign. In my experience, that Cast Member has always been standing to the far left of the entrance. You'll confirm your Be Our Guest Restaurant reservation there. I would expect to be permitted park entry at least 15-minutes prior to your reservation, if not a bit before. That should give you enough time to snap a quick photo in front of Cinderella Castle on a nearly-empty Main Street, U.S.A. before heading back to Fantasyland! 

     Did you know Guests with breakfast and lunch reservations at Be Our Guest Restaurant can place their orders up to 30-days in advance? This convenient option on My Disney Experience saves my family lots of precious time!

     I hope this was helpful, Aimee. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have about your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
