    When I made our breakfast reservation at Tusker House for Saturday, May 7th, it was suppose to open at 8:00. Now it doesn't open until 9:00. Our reservations are for 9:15. Are we permitted in before 9:00 because of our reservation? Can't wait!!

    Hi Melissa,

    Yes, with an Advanced Dining Reservation, you will be able to enter the Animal Kingdom prior to Park opening. When you approach the gates, head to the turnstile to the far right. It will be specially designated for entry for Guests with early morning reservations. Be sure to bring your confirmation number with you.

    Donald's Safari Breakfast at the Tusker House is located near the back corner of the Park. You need to plan to arrive at the restaurant 15-20 minutes prior to your reservation. Taking the walk back there into account, I would aim to be at the front gate by 8:30am.

    My family loves Donald's Safari Breakfast. It's a great way to start your Animal Kingdom day!

    Have a wonderful vacation,
