    We are going to the Magic Kingdom and Cinderella's Royal Table for an 8:55 am breakfast and we are off property. Once we reach the parking lot how long should we allow to reach the check-in at the castle?

    Hi Vickie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Hooray! Your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is almost here. You are going to LOVE dining at Cinderella's Royal Table. Delicious food, Disney princesses and dining inside Cinderella Castle ... it's the stuff fairy tales are made of!

    I recommend you plan to arrive at the parking lot for Magic Kingdom Park no later than 8:00 a.m. If you have slow-moving little ones like I do, I would even arrive a bit earlier. You will need to walk or take the tram to the Transportation and Ticket Center, go through security, then board either the monorail or ferry boat to Magic Kingdom Park. Once there, you will enter the theme park then walk to Cinderella's Royal Table.

    If you arrive before general admission, search for the line for breakfast reservations. This line allows you to enter Magic Kingdom Park before general admission Guests if you have a breakfast reservation. A Cast Member will check to verify that you have a reservation, then you'll be able to scan your ticket or MagicBand to enter the theme park.

    I hope this helps you plan ahead for your magical day at Magic Kingdom Park! Let us know if you have any other questions!
