    I made reservations at Beast's Castle for breakfast at 8:30. The park doesn't open until 9:00. How do we go about getting to breakfast or do we need to reschedule for another time? We are not staying at a resort on Disney property.

    Hello and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Looks like a Walt Disney World vacation is in the works and I am excited to see that you have some great dining plans for your upcoming trip. Let's get started.

    You will be happy to know that no changes are needed with your current dining time.  As you approach the front gates to the Magic Kingdom, you will find touch point sensors.  Just look for signs stating "dining" or "dining reservations."  If you cannot find the location, Cast Members will be around and will be happy to assist you. You will be allowed to enter the park approximately 15 minutes prior to your reservation time. No need to wait until park opening and you do not need to be a Disney Resort guest.  Make sure to allow for travel time so that you do not miss your 8:30 a.m. reservation. 

    While visiting Walt Disney World, I suggest taking advantage of the Shop Disney Parks app.  Shopping has never been easier.  Click on the above link to see all the great features that this app offers. 

    Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"
