    Planning ahead to make dining reservations for Oct. 1st. We want to go to Hollywood & Vine but I'm not sure when the park opens. Can I make 8am reservations if the park doesn't open until 9:00? Assuming someone is at the front gate to let us in? Help!

    Hi Courtney!!!  Greetings to a fellow Georgian!!!

    We have an Advance Dining Reservation for Disney Junior Play 'n Dine at Hollywood and Vine for an upcoming trip and I am so excited for our son to be able to see the characters, especially Jake!!!

    Park hours are not out for October at this point, but the usual opening time for Disney's Hollywood Studios is 9:00am.  If you booked an Advance Dining Reservation time before 9:00am all you will need to do is go to a cast member at the turnstiles and let them know that you have a dining reservation at  8:00am (or whatever your reservation time might be) and they will let you right in to head to Hollywood and Vine.  I would recommend taking your confirmation number with you, just to be safe. 

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions!!!

    Have a magical day!!
