    I have a reservation at Be Our Guest restaurant. I will already be in Magic Kingdom Park, but about how early should I probably try to arrive? I don't want it to be a hassle to get seated to eat. This is my first time at Disney!

    HI Amber!
    Thanks for your question and for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    How awesome that you are arriving soon for your first visit to Walt Disney World! You are sure to make memories that will last a lifetime!!
    Eating at Be Our Guest Restaurant at Magic Kingdom is one of my MUST DO dining experiences on EVERY trip. The theming is amazing and the food is quite good.
    It is not common for guests to be seated early at Be Our Guest Restaurant as it is incredibly popular. Cast Members accommodate guests as quickly as they can, but there is no benefit to checking in too early. I would suggest that arriving 5-10 minutes before your scheduled dining reservation will suffice. And don't forget to say hi to "The Master of the Castle" when you have finished eating.

    I hope this helps and I wish you a Magical first trip!!
