    I have reservations at Tusker House for 8 and am staying off-site. I read on a website that parking lots do not open til 8. We will be way late for our reservations if that is so, what can we do?

    We have run in to this very situation when driving our vehicle to the Animal Kingdom for an early morning breakfast on a non-Extra Magic Hour day.

    Typically the Magic Kingdom opens its parking lot 90 minutes prior to opening and the other parks open their lots at 60 minutes prior to opening.

    I remember being held at the toll booths and being very nervous about making our reservation or missing out on early morning touring. However, I don't ever remember actually missing the park opening "show". I believe they open the gates in enough time to get you parked and to the front gate.

    Once parked, go directly to the entrance for the Tusker House breakfast.

    We have arrived many times via car, parked and gotten to our early morning breakfast in time.
