    Hello!My family have 8:00am ADR @ Tusker House on a day where AK have extra magic hours in the morning. Was hoping to get crowd free pics at the park,will we be able to get in earlier or should I change my ADR to a later time??? Thanks.4mos. to go!!Yipeee!

    Hi Rachel,

    You're supposed to be at the Tusker House podium 15 minutes in advance of your reservation time. This means that they should let you into the park at 7:45 at the latest. While you won't have much time "alone" in the park, you will likely have four or five minutes where things are quite empty. In my experience, this is enough time to get a few classic shots of the family.

    I would not change my reservation to a later time. Even without photos, getting into the park early is a great way to start your day.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else we can do to help.
