    I have a 9:20 reservation at BOG. The park opens at 9 that day. We have some slow walkers and I’m concerned about making it to the back in time. Is there a chance to be let in early and if so what time should we get there? Thanks

    Hi Tara!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Firstly, congratulations on securing a reservation at Be Our Guest Restaurant, as this is one of the most sought-after dining locations, and Beast's Castle is as magical as you would expect.  You will absolutely be admitted to the park early for your 9.20am dining reservation.  I would arrive at the Magic Kingdom security check no later than 8.30am, then make your way to the entrance with a sign for 'Guests with early dining reservations' - this is usually on the far left.  You will have plenty of time to make your way to Fantasyland for your breakfast - here is a Magic Kingdom Park Guide Map for reference.

    If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, the complimentary Disney transport will start running approximately 45 minutes prior to park opening times, but for more time efficiency you might like to consider using the Minnie Van Service to give your day an even more magical start!  These can accommodate up to 6 Guests, are driven by friendly and knowledgeable Disney Cast Members, and can be ordered by using the Lyft app which will also display the cost of using this service.  You could also stop by the Front Desk of your hotel and ask them to call you a taxi, but please allow extra time for this as a taxi may not be readily waiting at your hotel.   It's worth noting that the Minnie Vans are the only taxi service permitted to drive to the entrance of Magic Kingdom Park, all others have to stop at the Transportation and Ticket Center from where you will have to take a monorail or ferryboat to the entrance of the park.  

    Please come back if you have any other questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
