    We have a reservation at BBB at 8am on a friday in MK, how early do you suggest we get there?

    Hi Toni,

    I would plan to be at the Magic Kingdom gates about half an hour prior to your reservation time. This will give you a chance to go through security and check in at the gate. Look for a turnstile that says something like "Early Check-In." This will be for guests who have BBB or character meal reservations prior to park opening.

    Once you're in the park you have an excellent opportunity to take some photos of your family on Main Street and in front of the Castle without loads of other guests in the background. If you want to get everyone in the shot, just ask a passing cast member to take the photo for you.

    Have a great time!
