    We have reservations for Bibbidi Boddidi Boutique at 8:40am but the park doesn’t open till 9am. Will they still honor our reservation?

    Hi there Brian, it's great to have you here at planDisney!

    For many of our youngest guests, there's really nothing like starting off a morning with a magical Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique transformation to look and feel like royalty for the rest of their Magic Kingdom Park adventures that day. This very popular and often sold-out experience is definitely one of those trickier spots to snag in advance, and I'm happy to walk you through what you can expect for one of those very early pre-opening booking times:

    • You'll be happy to hear that in my observations over the past few early theme park mornings I've experienced, guests are often let in through the turnstiles and down Main Street, U.S.A. even up to an hour prior to the posted park opening and held in designated holding areas until the appropriate time. On the arrival date that you've indicated for us, Magic Kingdom Park is currently scheduled to open at 9:00 a.m. and even earlier at 8:30 a.m. for those benefitting from Early Theme Park Entry for Disney Resort Hotel Guests. Cast Members begin letting these guests through to the lands beyond earlier, as well as those with early Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique bookings and dining reservations to locations such as Cinderella's Royal Table.
    • I advise arriving as early as possible in order to be among those who get the opportunity to experience what's like to snap a relatively empty shot in front of Cinderella Castle, and keep an eye out for Cast Members who may have signage directing those with bookings where to go - as operations may be subject to change without prior notice on the morning of your visit, it's always best to ask a Cast Member directly to help you get to your reservation on time, with your booking confirmation ready to show when they ask for it.
    That morning, I recommend taking the time to enjoy what it's like to see Magic Kingdom Park slowly come alive to welcome everyone in - especially as fellow guests hastily make their way to their first attraction of the day. If you really want an additional special way to mark this makeover moment, consider a Capture Your Moment session for shots that you'll all want to be able to look back on for years to come! (Don't be surprised if you encounter hundreds of your fellow guests in line also eagerly waiting to make their way in; you'll be coming at a time full of excitement in Magic Kingdom Park!)

    Here's to all of your early-morning adventuring!
