    We have a 9:15am reservation at Cinderella's Royal table on a day when the park opens at 9am (and there are no extra magic hours). Will we able to get into the park early, and if we can, what is there to do in the park before it actually opens?

    Hello Summer!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I just love to hEAR that you have a breakfast reservation at Cinderella’s Royal Table! There is nothing more special than dining in royal regal in the company of Disney Princesses inside iconic Cinderella Castle.

    Guests are actually welcome to enter Magic Kingdom Park one hour before official opening time, so if the park opens at 9:00 a.m. on the date of your visit you will be allowed to enter as early as 8:00 a.m. Guests are able to walk around Main Street U.S.A., check shops that may be opened, stop by Main Street Bakery to grab a cup of coffee and a bite to eat, and make their way up to Cinderella Castle. 

    Access to all lands will be closed until park opening time, when ropes finally “drop”. About 5 minutes official opening time, Guests can enjoy Let the Magic Begin, which is a beautiful welcome show that takes place each morning right in front of Cinderella Castle. I highly recommend catching this show and when it is finished you can make your way to Cinderella’s Royal Table.

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Summer! I hope this helps you while planning.

    Best magical wishes,
