    We have a 9:00 a.m. reservation for breakfast at Be Our Guest on a day when the park opens at 9am. Can we go in early to make it across the park in time? If not, what happens if we don't arrive exactly at 9am?

    Hi Jennifer!

    Yeah! You scored a Be Our Guest reservation during your Walt Disney World vacation. I know you will all be excited to start your day off with a magical breakfast in such a beautiful location.

    You will not have to rush or worry about making your reservation time. The Magic Kingdom often opens Main Street at least 30 minutes early for all guests to amble around and take photos and do a little shopping. At the end of Main Street there will be cast members holding ropes to all other parts of the park.

    For those with early dining reservations they can check in with the cast to the far left of the park entrance queues. Your name will be on a list and you might be able to actually enter before the regular guests. This will depend on how early they open Main Street that day. Once you reach the ropes at the end of the street please check with the cast members there who will also have a list of those with reservations for Be our Guest and Cinderella’s Royal Table. They will allow you to pass and head to the restaurant with plenty of time to get there. I always suggest you arrive about 10-15 minutes before your reservation to get checked in.

    My suggestion is to arrive at the park between 8:15-8:30 so you can take your time in reaching the restaurant. Enjoy and have a great day in the most magical park.
