    We have several character breakfasts booked through our stay. Most of them are shortly after the parks open (9:15, 9:30 and 9:45 - all for 9am park openings). Will we be allowed into the park before it opens to beat the crowds?

    Hi Sarah:

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I absolutely love making Advanced Dining Reservations for prior to theme park openings.  I find it is a great way to maximize your time in the Theme Parks and I love walking down a practically empty Main Street U.S.A., it is truly magical.  Guests who have dining reservations prior to park opening will be able to enter shortly before their reservation in order to get to your dining location in time.  I would recommend taking the time to stop for pictures as you enter the theme parks - there is nothing better than taking pictures in front of Cinderella Castle without any other guests in the background!

    Please let me know if you have any other questions as your vacation approaches.  I would be happy to help.
