    We have 8am reservations at BBB at WDW on July 22. The park doesn't open until 9am. What time should we be at the park and what do we need so they let us in early? Thanks!!

    Hi Amy,

    I LOVE having early reservations at the Magic Kingdom.

    For an 8:00am Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique reservation, you should plan to be at the Main Gate entrance by about 7:40. There will be one entrance lane open for guests with early character meal, tour, and BBB reservations. Look for a sign that says something like "Early Character Meals." If you don't see it right away, just ask any cast member for directions. They will look up your reservation on a clipboard or ipad and then allow you into the park at about 7:45.

    If you're moving with purpose, the walk from the gate to the castle only takes about five minutes. But you should plan to walk slowly, taking photos of your family on Main Street with the castle in the background. These are usually terrific shots - this is one of the few opportunities you'll have to get pictures without oodles of other guests in the background.

    Have a great vacation and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help.
