    Made reservations for BOG for 8:05 am but now Disney changed park opening to 8 am on 4/28 😩 Do you think we can still eat quick and enjoy short lines or should I cancel reservations and just get there early for rides? What would you do?

    Hi Katherine!

    Because all of the dining options at the Walt Disney World Resort are so amazing, it is hard for me to choose between those and all of the incredible attractions!  That being said, I usually go for an early morning in the parks to try to beat the crowds (and the heat) and a nice relaxed dinner in the evening so that I can eat my fill and not feel like I need to rush to make it to an attraction or show.

    Because Be Our Guest Restaurant is such an amazing dining experience, I doubt that you will want to rush through your meal.  There is so much to see and appreciate throughout the restaurant that it would be sad to miss all of the magic in the details.  Also, once Magic Kingdom Park opens, it does not take very long for the more popular attractions to get crowded.  If you really want to make it to some of the more popular attractions like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train or Peter Pan's Flight before the lines get longer, I would change your dining reservation to another time.  If these rides are not important to you, you already have FastPass+ selections for them, or you don't mind waiting in line, then enjoy your breakfast!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
