    I have reservations for breakfast at 9:00 at Cinderella's Royal Table. What time should I arrive to the castle? What time will I be allowed into the park to get to the castle?

    Hi Missy,

    Congratulations on reserving one of the most sought after Advanced Dining Reservations at Walt Disney World!  Dining at Cinderella's Royal Table for breakfast is sure to make your royal day magical.  Per Walt Disney World's recommendations, Guests should check in to their restaurant approximately 15 minutes prior to their Advanced Dining Reservation time.  Since you have 9:00 a.m. reservations at Cinderella's Royal Table you should check in at approximately 8:45 a.m.

    For all of my family's Advanced Dining Reservations that occur before official park opening, I make sure we are at the theme park character breakfast entrance at least half an hour prior to our Advanced Dining Reservations time.  On days in which the Magic Kingdom's official park opening is at 9:00 a.m., you can generally expect to be admitted through the special character breakfast entrance at approximately 8:30 a.m.  Personally I prefer arriving at the character breakfast entrance approximately 45-60 minutes prior to our Advanced Dining Reservations in order to give my family a little buffer.  The Cast Member at the character breakfast entrance will verify your reservations and let you know what time you may enter.  Since policies and practices evolve to best meet customer needs, do not expect 8:30 a.m. admission to be the exact or official time.  The Cast Member at the character breakfast entrance will help you get to Cinderella Castle in time for your Advanced Dining Reservations and answer any questions that you may have.

    Have a MAGICAL vacation Missy!  Please let us know if you have any further vacation planning questions.  We are always happy to help!
