    Is it a score? I was able to secure an 8:05am Be Our Guest dining reservation on Thursday March 23. However, the parks will be open early for a ticketed event 7:45am-9:00am. Will we be allowed to enter for our dining? We have annual passes.

    Hi, Jennifer!

    Thanks so much for sending us your question about early park entrance through an Advanced Dining Reservation. Great question, and that location is a total score!

    When Guests book an Advanced Dining Reservation at a Walt Disney World Theme Park, that early morning reservation gets them into that park prior to the regular Park Open. This means that your 8:05 a.m. reservation at Be Our Guest Restaurant will enable you to enter Magic Kingdom Park prior to its usual open at 9:00 that morning. 

    Once you are at the entrance to Magic Kingdom, look for the Cast Member holding a sign for Guests with Dining Reservations. That Cast Member will be able to confirm that you have that early reservation and will guide you toward the entrance area reserved just for lucky folks such as you. 

    There is so much to love about dining at Be Our Guest, whether it be for a Quick-Serve breakfast or lunch or a Table Serve dinner, so I am so excited that you snagged that great reservation! While I love dining in The Ballroom at Be Our Guest, be sure to look at The West Wing, too, for a glimpse of a certain Enchanted Rose as well as a portrait that's...well...rather magical.

    Enjoy your visit to Beast's Castle as a great start to your day at Magic Kingdom, Jennifer! Be sure to send us more questions as you think of them, too. We love to help!
