    We are not staying on Disney property but have breakfast reservations before park opens. Is there a particular gate entry/line for early entry for breakfast reservations?

    Hi Savyvann!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I love to enjoy an early breakfast reservation in any theme park before it opens!  There is something very special about being in a park while it is waking up for the day.  For any Guests with a dining reservation at a restaurant inside a Walt Disney World Resort theme park, you will be admitted with enough time to make your way to your restaurant.  For your early reservation, I would suggest arriving at the theme park around 30-40 minutes earlier, to give yourselves enough time to clear the security bag check, and walk to the restaurant.  Head to the touchpoint entrance with a sign for 'Guests with early dining reservations' where you will scan your MagicBand or park ticket.  

    As you not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, I am assuming you will arrive by car?  The parking lots at the theme parks will typically open an hour before park opening, sometimes even earlier than that, so you should have plenty of time.  If you are arriving by taxi, they will be permitted to drop you close to the entrance of Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.  If you are visiting Magic Kingdom Park, all taxis must take you to the Transportation and Ticket Center.  You will then board a monorail or ferryboat to take you across to the park entrance.

    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 Resort.
