    We have a reservation for 8:10Am But we do not have extra hour ticket Will we be able to get into the park For our reservation?

    Hi there, Betty!

    Welcome, and thanks for visiting us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We are always so excited to hEAR about what you will be doing when you visit Walt Disney World Resort. 

    The answer is, yes you will be able to enter the park for your reservation at 8:10 a.m. with a valid theme park ticket. At the main entrance, just let the Cast Member know you are there early for a dining reservation. Once you are in the parks, head towards the location of the restaurant that you’ve made your reservation at!

    My family and I experienced this on our last trip in April. Half of our party on the reservation was staying at a Disney Resort Hotel so Extra Magic Hours were included. However, the other half did not have Extra Magic Hours, but since they had a dining reservation they were able to enter the park. All we did once we entered Magic Kingdom Park to dine at Be Our Guest Restaurant was check in with a Cast Member. The Cast Member at the entrance of Fantasyland stopped to validate our MagicBands. After one of our party member’s MagicBand was scanned to confirm our reservation, we were on our way!

    Tip: Give you and your party plenty of time to arrive at your reservation destination. If you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, be sure to also check out the Resort Transportation times the night before you travel using the My Disney Experience Mobile App!
