    Hi, Here’s hoping you can help. My first day is at AK with an 8am breakfast reservation at rain forest cafe. As I am buying an annual pass on line will I be able to collect/activate my ticket and get to me breakfast reservation? Thanks in advance

    Hi Siobhan!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am excited to see that your holiday to Walt Disney World is less than three months away!  Remember that you can start making your FastPass+ reservations 60 days in advance (if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel) by using your My Disney Experience mobile app.  A breakfast reservation on your first morning at Rainforest Cafe at Animal Kingdom is the perfect way to start your day at that amazing park.  You will find Guest Relations at the entrances to all the theme parks, and they will be able to help with your Annual Pass, and other enquiries such as dining reservations, show times and parade information for that day, and they will usually be open during the normal operating hours for each location.  If Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is opening for Extra Magic Hours on the day of your dining reservation, park opening will be at 8.00am (at this time Extra Magic Hours are listed for Mondays and Saturdays at this theme park, but this is always subject to change), otherwise it will be opening at 9.00am.  There is, however, some good news!  Did you know that Rainforest Cafe at Animal Kingdom has two entrances, both inside and outside the park? Which means you do not have to enter the park before you enter the restaurant, so your Annual Pass can be activated after your breakfast if Guest Relations is not open beforehand.  Have a look at the Guide Map here - you will see number (2) on the map is Rainforest Cafe, and you have the choice of entering and exiting from two places.

    If you were thinking of visiting Disney Springs for dinner on your arrival day, you will find a brand new Ticket Center there, so you could activate your Annual Pass while you are there too.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical holiday to Walt Disney World.
