    Scored an 8:05 ADR at CRT on a day MK will open at 9 am (no EMH). What time can we enter the closed park for a leisurely stroll and picture pauses up an empty Main St? Also, what time will busses start transport from POR for travel considerations? SQUEEEE!

    Hi Megan,

    Congratulations on getting a highly sought-after reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table!

    I would plan to be at the entrance to Magic Kingdom no later than 7:30 a.m. That should give you time to walk leisurely up Main Street and stop and pose for pictures. There's nothing like being inside Magic Kingdom before the gates open to the general public.

    To enter, you will need to give your name and reservation number to the cast member at the gate designated for early diners,

    Buses generally begin running from the resorts to the parks about an hour before the parks open, but the resorts make special arrangements for those with early dining reservations. Please let the cast member who checks you in know what day you have  your reservation and double-check the procedure for Port Orleans Riverside. They can tell where the special pick-up takes place and what time you should plan to depart.

    Generally, a cast member with a clipboard or computer tablet is at the main resort bus station very early each day to coordinate the dining transportation.

    I hope you have a great breakfast at Cinderella's Royal Table. Please let me know if I can offer more help. Enjoy!
