    Love this Panel! My family and I have reservations for 8:05am at the Tusker house in the Animal Kingdom which opens at 8 that day, will we get in early in order to make are res? If so where do we get in?

    Great question MIchelle!  Better to know exactly what to do then to arrive amidst the crowds at the gates!

    I would suggest you arrive at the entrance no later then 7:45a.m. the morning of your reservation.  Proceed to the far right entrance turnstile where you will see a cast member. She will have the list of those parties who have early reservations and will allow you to proceed to Tusker House. 

    There is a pre-show opening ceremony each day at the Animal Kingdom park that happens in front of the Tree of Life.  If the day guests have been allowed to enter to this point then be sure to look for the cast member on the left in this area who will help you get to the Tusker House on time for your reservation.  When in doubt just ask any cast member you see and they will be happy to guide you in the right direction.
