    We have 8:15 reservations for breakfast at the castle and I just realized that the park doesn't open until 9. How does that work? Will they let us that far into the park, do we have to just show our confirmation?

    All four theme parks have character breakfast seatings before the park opens. If you have a reservation for one of those seatings, it is very easy to get into the park for your meal. In fact it may be even easier to enter the park then than it would later in the day when the crowds are much thicker.

    There will be a special park entrance turnstile open for guests with early breakfast reservations. The special entrance line is most often on one of the far ends of the row of turnstiles. There will be sign posted that says something like "Character Breakfast Entrance." If you don't see it right away, just ask any cast member. As you get to the breakfast entrance line, there will be a person with a clipboard checking to make sure that guests entering here do have reservations. Just give them your name and they will check you off the list. It is a good idea to also have your confirmation number with you in case there are any problems.

    I LOVE having early breakfast reservations at the Magic Kingdom restaurants. Be sure to keep your camera handy when you walk to your meal. This is one of the few opportunities you'll have to take photos of your family in front of the castle without zillions of other guests in the background.

    Have a great meal and give Cinderella a hug from me!
