    If our meal reservations begin 30 min before the 2:00 hopper start time, will they allow early admission to the restaurant?

    Hey there, Michele!

    Thanks so much for stopping by with this great question. 

    I love nothing more than making an advanced dining reservation at one of the fabulous table-service restaurants inside the theme parks. My family really enjoys a break from all the hustle and bustle of the day. 

    If you have a dining reservation for a park that you do not have a Disney Park Pass system reservation for, you will not be allowed to hop over and enter the park before 2:00, so you may miss your reservation!

    I recommend that you modify your existing reservation to a time after 2:00.

    If there are no later reservations at the moment, I encourage you to keep checking! Reservations are updated in real-time, so if someone cancels a reservation, you just might be able to snag it. 

    I hope that this helped, Michele! Please come back here if we can answer any other questions for you!

    See you real soon!
