    I was lucky enough to get reservations for breakfast in Cinderella's castle. Our reservations are for 8:00am. But the park doesn't open until 9 that day. I was wondering if you knew what time the parking lot opens and how early they'll let us in. Thanks

    Congratulations on getting that Cinderella reservation! An 8:00 a.m. reservation is perfect. I would get to the Magic Kingdom by about 7:30 to leave time for a security check and the walk to the castle. There will be a special park entrance line for people with early breakfast reservations at the Crystal Palace and Cinderella's Royal Table. Usually this line is to the far left of the entrance turnstiles, but if you don't see it right away simply ask a cast member to direct you. At the early entrance line, you will need to give a cast member your name, and possibly your reservation confirmation number. Then, they will let you enter into the park. Proceed to the castle, check in at the desk, and you will be escorted up to your meal. Don't forget to stop in the lobby for a photograph with the Fairy Godmother. If things are running smoothly, you should be done with your meal just in time for the park opening. Have a great trip!
