    We have reservations for Cinderellas Royal Table at 8:05 am. Magic Kingdom’s early entry is 7:30am. This coincides with the time we should be going into the park for our reservation. I know it will be crowded. Will we have any trouble getting in on time?

    Hey Howdy Hey Melissa and welcome to planDisney! 

    Your Elegant and Royal Dining experience at Cinderella's Royal Table will be a treasured memory for years to come! This experience is so much more than a meal and a visit with the princesses, you are going to want to have your camera ready for pictures of this beautiful castle interior and all that goes along with it. Thank you for stopping by with your question about entry into the parks. I will be happy to give you more information. 

    I like your planning strategy thus far to get to your reservation on time. You want to make sure you are at the parks about 30 minutes early for your reservation and get to the destination with a few minutes to spare. You are correct that as of this writing, Early Theme Park Entry begins at 7:30 AM. In most cases, Disney will usually have several Cast Members scanning MagicBands or phones to ensure Guests are staying with Disney Resorts Collection or a qualifying resort to get into the parks. There will also be entry for Guests who have dining reservations and need to get into the parks earlier. Typically this runs very efficiently and you shouldn't worry about getting to your dining location as long as you are at the entrance to the park at 7:30. 

    One other tip that might save you some time is utilizing Mobile Dine Check-In. Available through your My Disney Experience app, this will allow you to bypass the host stand and head straight to your table. As the time nears, check on your My Disney Experience app to see if you have this option available at your location. This will allow you to check in and even spend a little extra time taking pictures in front of an empty Cinderella Castle or on Main Street, U.S.A. Once your name is called, you will either be notified in the app or a Cast Member will come out to welcome you to your dining experience and then walk you to your table. 

    I am sure you will have a Magical time during your vacation. A meal in Cinderella Castle is the quintessential Disney experience you will love! If you have any further questions, please feel free to stop by and let us know, we are always happy to help!

    Have a Magical day,
