    Hi, If I have reservations at Cinderella's castle for an 8am breakfast, but the park opens at 9am, how does that work? Where should I park and enter?

    Hi James,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How wonderful to have a pre-park opening breakfast reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table!

    We love breakfast reservations before the park opens because we enjoy the serenity of the park before the crowds arrive. We take the most magical photos on our way to the restaurant - just us in front of the castle seems so perfect! When you arrive at Magic Kingdom, simply let a cast member know that you have an early morning breakfast reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table. They will tell you which line to use to enter the park. 

    Be sure to review your parking options. You may also call 407-824-2222 or ask a cast member at the park entrance if you have specific questions. There are preferred parking options as well as parking for guests with disabilities. I suggest that that you arrive to the parking lot at least 45 minutes prior to your dining reservation to give yourself enough time to park and get through the entrance. 

    James, if you have any princesses or princes with you, they may want to dress like royalty to dine with their princess friends. We always bring our girls' princess attire from home, tiaras included!

    Sending pixie dust your way hoping you enjoy a magical time in the castle!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
