    Hi! I’ll be in WDW next week managed to secure a LeCellier res for 1:50 pm. I was scheduled for MK in the morning and hop over to EPCOT later. Since hopping starts at 2 should I change park reservation to EPCOT or will we be able to get in a little early?

    Heigh-Ho Lori,

    You are only a couple of sweet dreams away before coming home to The Most Magical Place on Earth and you have asked a great question. Many times Guests wait patiently and anxiously for that Wish Upon a Star Advanced Dining Reservation. They try daily and multiple times per day up until the time of their arrival and hope availability opens. And in your case, some well-deserved pixie dust was sprinkled and you now have a reservation at Le Cellier Steakhouse

    While it is good news you have the Park Hopper option, the question at hand is can you make it to the reservation on time? You are correct park-hopping hours begin at 2:00 p.m. but Guests must first make a Disney Park Pass reservation, at one of the four Walt Disney World Theme Parks, and enter that specific Theme Park before park hopping. And while there have been times Guests have been permitted in a little early it is not guaranteed. I think for peace of mind I would encourage you to cancel your current Disney Park Pass reservation, at Magic Kingdom park, and reschedule it for Epcot. Please be sure to check the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar before canceling your current Disney Park Pass reservation. All of this can be done in your My Disney Experience under My Plans. Simply scroll to the date in question, select View Details and after confirming Epcot has availability, and cancel the Magic Kingdom park reservation. Next, continue with making a new Disney Park Pass reservation at Epcot. And Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo you are set to enjoy a beautiful start to your day at Epcot with a delectable late lunch at Le Cellier and then park hop off to your next adventure.
    Safe travel and may your upcoming stay be filled with many magical and memorable moments.

    Have a Practically Perfect Day,

    Amy M.
