    Do I need to pay for “extra hour” tickets If I want to book a breakfast at 8am for be our guest and the park opens at 9am?

    Hi, Davida!

    Thanks so much for sending this great question to Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Guests with early morning dining reservations at restaurants within Walt Disney World parks may enter the park early using their regular Theme Park Tickets. No need for an extra ticket!

    Upon arrival at Disney's Magic Kingdom Park, look for the sign for Guests with early morning dining reservations; this is usually over to one side of the queue to enter the park. I suggest that you plan to enter at least 15 minutes prior to your reservation; Main Street, USA is going to look glorious with so few Guests in Magic Kingdom Park, and you'll be able to get photos in front of Cinderella Castle as well as Beast's Castle that look as if you are the only ones there!

    Be Our Guest Restaurant is truly a most enchanted way to start your Magic Kingdom day, so if you want to maximize your time in the park, consider pre-ordering your breakfast prior to arrival, either online or by using your My Disney Experience mobile app. Upon arrival, select the room where you'd like to dine (Although my favorite is The Grand Ballroom, there is something extra-magical about The West Wing) and your meal will arrive at your table in a jiffy.

    Have fun planning your day at Magic Kingdom Park, Davida! Be sure to send us more questions as you think of them, too. We love to help!
