    I have made reservations for breakfast with Cinderella during our trip. Breakfast starts at 9:05, but the park doesn't open until 9. Are we allowed to enter early so we are on time?

    Hello fellow Lauren!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you again for sending in such a great question. 

    I can see your concerns as no one wants to keep a Disney Princess waiting. Luckily, not too long ago, Magic Kingdom Park changed their opening procedure and Guests are now let into the park (just up to Cinderella Castle) up to an hour before the park is scheduled to open. You can read more about the new opening and the  Let the Magic Begin ceremony here on the Disney Parks Blog. This should give you plenty of time to get into the park, maybe even do a little shopping on Main Street, U.S.A., watch the ceremony and arrive on time for breakfast with Cinderella. 

    I wish you a wonderful vacation, Lauren, and if there is anything else we can assist you with, please come back and visit! 

    Magical Wishes,
