    Hi Panel! We have an 8:00am reservation at BOG. How do we get into MK before park opening? Thanks for all of the great information you offer!

    Hey there Kristy! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Being able to enter Magic Kingdom before park opening in my opinion is one of the coolest things! I love that when you enter the place is practically deserted. There is no better time to get that perfect picture in front of Cinderella Castle. I always take a few moments to just stop right in the middle of Main Street, U.S.A. and take in all of the beauty. It makes me think about “Uncle Walt’s” dream and how his hard work and determination led to this beautiful park. This park brings so many people together and creates such beautiful memories for so many families, that being able to take it all in before the crowds come is a truly magical experience.

    When you have a dining reservation before Magic Kingdom Park opening there are Cast Members available to help guide you to the check in area, you may even see a sign that will bring you the right place for check in. When I recently dined at Be Our Guest Restaurant before park opening, I was directed to the left hand side of the entrance to Magic Kingdom, near the “Newsstand” shop. Please keep in mind that they may shuffle check in locations around so if in doubt ask the nearest Cast Member! Once you approach the check in area, they will ask for your name and they may even scan your Magic Band. I always recommend keeping your reservation number handy just in case there is a technical issue and they can’t locate it. Once they see that everything matches up they will let you into the park! Once inside there will be Cast Members directing you to your dining location!

    I hope that you will love the Be Our Guest Restaurant breakfast experience as much as I did! Have a wonderful time!
