    Hi! We have several ADR's for 8:00 AM breakfasts, there are 8 of us and we drive our cars to the parks. Do the parking lots open early enough for us to park and make it the meals? This panel has been great helping with the planning!

    Hi Kimberly!  Congratulations on booking your Advance Dining Reservations for your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!  Depending on where your ADR's will be taking place, the theme parks begin transportation and allow for parking beginning an hour before the scheduled opening time.  If your ADR's occur at the resorts, parking is open essentially 24 hours, but be prepared to be asked for your ID and your ADR time.  They may or may not cross check a list of scheduled guests.  When driving, the travel time is definitely less than on Disney transportation, so you should have plenty of time to arrive at your ADR's.

    Hope this helps you plan a magical vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Malanie, New York

Hi there! The Disney Parks have been a part of my life since I was a little girl. Introducing my children, husband, and family to all the magic that Walt Disney World can offer has led to countless moments with Mickey and Friends, Disney Vacation Club membership and fun on the high seas with Disney Cruise Lines! Our vacations are usually centered around a visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth, and I am super excited to help you plan and create magical moments for you and your families!
