    We have an 8:05 AM be our guest reservation when a regular MK opening at 8AM. Will we be allowed in before 8 AM to make it to our reservation on time? We were also hoping to maybe squeeze in a quick ride on Seven Dwarves. Thanks!

    Hi Brittany!

    Be Our Guest Restaurant is one of my absolute favorite places to dine at the Walt Disney World Resort!  Luckily, Cast Members do realize that it takes a few minutes to get from the entrance of Magic Kingdom Park to Be Our Guest Restaurant, so they will let you into the park a few minutes early (usually around 15-20 minutes before the park opens).  Just make sure you go to the special area specifically for guests with early dining reservations.  There will be a Cast Member there holding a sign to show you where to go.  They will scan your MagicBands and allow you to enter the park!  If you need any help, just ask any Cast Member.  They will be happy to assist you!

    Because of the popularity of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, the line can get pretty long very quickly after the park officially opens.  Because of this, I doubt that you would have the time to ride before your reservation.  Also, if you are late to your reservation, your table may be given away.  There is usually a line of people waiting for a no-show or a cancelled reservation, so if you miss your reservation, you may have to wait for another table to become available.  You don't want to miss the amazing experience of dining in the Beast's enchanted castle, so if you can't get a later reservation to give yourself time to ride, I would suggest trying to make the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train one of your FastPass+ selections instead!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
