    If you make a reservation at BBB for 8:00am when the park opens, are you allowed through the Disneyland gates prior to 8am to make the appointment on time?

    Hello, Lindsey! 

    Making a reservation at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at the Disneyland Resort for the same time that Disneyland Park opens is a great idea! That means that your dear little princess or prince will be able to enjoy that most magical makeover all day long. 

    “When’s it my turn? Wouldn’t I love, love to explore that shore up above?”

    Rest assured that your turn will come. Your child’s Fairy Godmother-in-training or Coachman will be waiting for your arrival. To ensure a smooth check-in experience, I recommend arriving several minutes before park opening. Typically, guests are permitted to enter the park well before the official park opening. That’s a great time to snap a photo in front of the station house of the Disneyland Railroad, window shop along Main Street, U.S.A., and take in those first magical moments of your visit to the Disneyland Resort!

    At the Central Plaza of the park, temporary rope barriers are usually set up until the announcement that the park is officially open. Guests gather in front of these ropes, eagerly awaiting their chance to “leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy.” When the Park Announcer gives the word that the park is open, the sudden rush of excitement fills the air! Because those ropes are likely to be relatively close to Fantasyland, your remaining walk to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique will be quite short.

    I hope your little Mouseketeer loves the exciting makeover on that special day. I recommend taking a few pictures with your own camera as the makeover happens. And when it is all complete, find a Disney PhotoPass photographer to record those special memories forever. Maybe that can be while you Meet Disney Princesses at Royal Hall!

    I hope you have a magical time, Lindsey!
