    Can you see the new Let the Magic Begin welcome show while enjoying breakfast at Cinderella's Royal Table? Our reservations are for 8:05 and I know my kids would love to be able to see the show too.

    Hi Caraline!

    One of the hardest parts of a Walt Disney World vacation is to see and experience everything that is offered on property. It will usually come down to hard choices but we all just add what we couldn't do on one trip to the list of must do's on the next.

    First of all, congratulations on being able to get a reservation to Cinderella's Royal Table as that is definitely one of the sought after reservations by guests. It will be an enchanting experience to enjoy a great breakfast meal while being entertained by Cinderella and her friends. Unfortunately, your time of 8:05 will likely prevent you from being done in time to see the opening show, Let the Magic Begin. This will take place approximately 5 minutes before the park is opened to guests to enjoy the attractions.

    If you arrive a bit early for your breakfast and they are able to take you in early you might have a chance to be done and out to see the show but you also won't want to cut your dining experience short. Although the breakfast is inside the castle and the show is in front of the castle you would also need to walk around to get to the front to see the show.

    My best advice is to arrive and check in just a bit early, enjoy the experience, and if you see you are finished then scoot around to the front of the castle as the show will begin about 8:55 for a 9am opening. Or you can exit the restaurant and get in line for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and be one of the first to ride that attraction. If your children do not meet that height requirement then find another attraction to head to early and be in line at opening! It will free you up for one of your FastPasses to not have to use one early in the day.
