    If we have reservations for 4 at BOG at 8:05am (MK opens at 9am that day), can I just show up and order a coffee or pastry (and not a full breakfast) and just enjoy being in the park early before the gates officially open? Thanks!

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kevin. We just love helping you plan your Disney vacation!

     An early morning breakfast reservation at Be Our Guest Restaurant is an absolute must-do for my family when we're visiting Magic Kingdom Park. Dining in Beast's enchanted castle is our most favorite way to begin a day of pixie-dusted adventures! You'll be pleased to know that you may order a beverage without ordering an entrée at Be Our Guest Restaurant during breakfast. However, the only way to enjoy one of the delicious pastries at this dining location is to order an entrée. A platter of assorted pastries to share is brought to the table, but only if there's been at least one entrée purchased among your dining party. (There's often an argument in my family over who gets the chocolate croissant from the platter - YUM!) Aside from beverages, the only á la carte item available on the breakfast menu at Be Our Guest Restaurant is The Master's Cupcake - a chocolate sponge cake topped with Lumiere's special "Grey Stuff." I can speak from experience when I say The Master's Cupcake pairs nicely with a hot cup of coffee! 

     If you finish your light breakfast before the park officially opens, you will find yourself in a nearly-empty Fantasyland. You can return to Main Street, U.S.A. while you wait for the park to open or you can remain in Fantasyland. Please note that certain sections of Fantasyland are roped off until park opening. My family is always sure to be finished with breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant at least 10-minutes before "rope drop." This gives us a chance to head in the direction of Seven Dwarfs Mine Train or Peter Pan's Flight so we are among the first Guests of the day to experience these fan-favorite attractions! 

     Did you know you know that Guests with breakfast or lunch reservations at Be Our Guest Restaurant can place their orders online up to 30-days in advance? This convenient option on My Disney Experience saves my family lots of precious time!

     I hope this was helpful, Kevin. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have!
