    I'd love to make a res for bfast in MK for the earliest time possible and have an opportunity to take a few pics of us in front of the castle all alone w/o others. Are photopass photographers out that early before the park opens? How early can we go in

    Hi Denise,

    I can't think of a better way to start the day than an early morning breakfast at the Magic Kingdom.

    My family love to make Advance Dining Reservations for restaurants inside the theme parks at times prior to park opening when we visit the Walt Disney World Resort. We especially like the fact that it gives us an opportunity to get some great photographs inside the theme parks without many other Guests in the background.

    There are a few options available at this theme park:-

    1/ The Crystal Palace
    2/ Cinderella's Royal Table
    3/ Be Our Guest

    The earliest time that you are normally able to make dining reservations for breakfast is 8:00AM. Just make sure that you don't make your Advance Dining Reservation for a day when there will be morning Extra Magic Hours.

    Once you arrive at the Magic Kingdom on the day of your visit, inform a Cast Member that you have an early morning dining reservation and they will tell you where you need to go. The last time that I visited in October, we were told to wait in a line at the left hand side of the entrance area until access into the theme park was permitted.  

    In my experience, there has almost always been Disney PhotoPass Photographers on hand to take photographs on Main Street U.S.A and in front of Cinderella Castle prior to park opening. If not, I'm sure that you will be able to get another Guest to take some photographs of you using your own camera.

    Wishing you a magical trip filled with memories which will last a lifetime!
