    We have a reservation for CP at 8:20am but they have now changed the hours so MK opens at 8 instead of 9.. What time will they let us in? I was planning on getting through the gates before the park opens for some pics on Main Street before the crowds.

    Hi there, Donna!

    You will be permitted to enter Magic Kingdom at 8:00 AM, when the gates open. However, if you get there earlier and ask, a Cast Member can make the decision to allow you inside. Remember to bring your confirmation number with you.

    Unless your reservation is before the Park opens, typically Guests are asked to wait outside until such time as the Park has opened.

    Have a wonderful trip!

    See you later, celebrator,
