    I made a reservation for breakfast at Tusker House for my family at 8:00 AM. The extra magic hours start at that time, but we are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel. Will we be able to get into the park for 8:00 AM or should I change the reservation?

    Jambo Kristin!  A WILD time awaits you at Disney's Animal Kingdom and the Tusker House restaurant! This fabulous dining experience is one of my favorites... I mean what can be better than dining amidst the wonder and beauty of Animal Kingdom in the company of some of your favorite Disney characters, right!?

    As long as you have booked a reservation at Tusker House, you will be permitted to enter the park and head directly to the restaurant.  There will be a special turnstile available for those with early dining reservations, so be sure to have your confirmation handy when you arrive!  After confirming your reservation and swiping your park ticket, a cast member will lead your party straight to Tusker House.

    Thanks so much for the question and congrats on your upcoming Walt DIsney World vacation!  If you think of any additional questions, please feel free to ask me!
