    Hi, Is there a dedicated entrance line to the MK with an 8:10am dining reservation at the Plaza Restaurant? Will this reservation enable us to be ahead of the regular crowd and get to Seven Dwarfs Mine Train before there is a long line? Thank you, Alan

    Hi Alan!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I really enjoy an early breakfast reservation at Magic Kingdom Park - it's lovely to see everything as it is just waking up for the day, and also gives you an opportunity to take some photos without many people inadvertently walking into the background of your picture!  When you arrive at the park, after clearing security, you will see an entrance (usually on the far left side) dedicated to Guests with early dining reservations.  You will be admitted to the park with plenty of time for you to arrive at your 8.10am reservation.  I would aim to arrive at security by around 7.30am.  It's worth noting that you have a delicious breakfast menu at The Plaza Restaurant, so you may not want to hurry it too much!, but if the park opens at 9.00am for regular Guests, and your breakfast is not too leisurely, there is no reason why you wouldn't be among the first in line for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.  However, if the park opens at 8.00am for Extra Magic Hours (exclusively available to Disney Resort hotel Guests), the queues will start building before you arrive for your breakfast reservation.  You can see the calendar here for Magic Kingdom Park to check the opening time for the day of your visit.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.  Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official news and updates on events that may be happening during your stay.
