    Hello! I have a reservation at BOG at 8:00 AM on a day where Magic Kingdom opens at 8:00. Will I be allowed to get into MK with enough time to get to the restaurant and get checked in? Thank you!

    Hi Melinda,

    Early morning dining reservations are the best! It's amazing to walk down a mostly empty Main Street USA before the park officially opens as you make your way to your breakfast.

    When you arrive at Magic Kingdom, you will find a special check-in area for those who have early reservations. It's usually to the left after you go through security, but ask any cast member if you don't see the sign right away. They will check your reservation and allow you into the park in plenty of time to reach Be Our Guest by 8 a.m. 

    I would plan to be at the entrance no later than 7:15- 7:30 a.m. to give yourself time to stop for a few photos along the way without other guests in the background. (It should take about 10 minutes to walk from the entrance to the restaurant in Fantasyland.)

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. And congratulations! An 8 a.m. advanced dining reservation at Be Our Guest is one of the most coveted reservations at Walt Disney World. Enjoy!
