    We have a 8:30 AM Reservation for Cinderella Royal Table on Saturday Nov. 23. MK doesn't open till 9:00 AM. How do I get into the park to make my reservation or show proof of reservation. Staying at Pop Century Resort so trying to plan accordingly.

    Hi there, Jamie!

    Way to go on getting such a great early breakfast reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table!

    I would plan on arriving at the Park entrance at least 30 minutes prior to your reservation time. The buses at Disney's Pop Century [and all of the Disney Resort hotels] start running very early in the mornings to deliver Guests to the Theme Parks for early reservations. I recommend allowing 90-minutes for travel time so you can arrive early!

    Once you arrive at Magic Kingdom Park, you will see a sign directing Guests with early breakfast reservations to a certain area to enter. If you don't see it right away, just ask the nearest Cast Member and they'll point you in the right direction. Be sure that you bring your Advanced Dining Reservation confirmation number with you because the Cast Members at the Park entrance will normally check their list to confirm that you do indeed have a reservation.

    One of my VERY favorite things to do at Walt Disney World is to walk down a practically empty Main Street USA before the Park opens in the morning. I just love taking pictures and soaking in the atmosphere as we stroll ever-so-slowly toward Cinderella Castle! Some of my family's favorite memories are from that walk!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Moms Panel with your great question, Jamie! Please don't hesitate to write back in if we can help with any other questions you have!

    Wishing you a Pixie Dusted vacation!
