    If magic kingdom opens at 9 am and we have reservations at Cinderella's royal table at 9:15 am, are we allowed early park entry to assure we make our reservation on time?

    Hi Courtney!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Congratulations on making a dining reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table This magical location is very sought-after and it can be challenging to find an available opening there. You will meet Cinderella for photos, before you are taken up the staircase to the banquet hall, where several Disney princesses will visit your table for photographs and autographs. It is a very special occasion. I would recommend you arrive at Magic Kingdom Park at least 30-45 minutes before your reservation, and after you have been through a security check, make your way to scan your MagicBand or park tickets at the entrance with a sign for "Guests with early dining reservations". You will be admitted with plenty of time to make it to breakfast.  If the park is opening at 9.00, Disney transport will start running around 45 minutes prior to that time. I would recommend that you consider using the Minnie Van Service - this is a really fun way to travel around Walt Disney World Resort. They are driven by Disney Cast Members and can accommodate up to six guests. Reservations can be made by using the Lyft app on your smartphone.    Alternatively you could ask the Front Desk of your Disney Resort hotel to call you a taxi, but please allow some extra time for this as a taxi may not be readily waiting at your hotel.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
