    Silly ? for you. If you ADR for breakfast before the parks open, how do you get inside? Are there special doors to go to? Do you have to prove you have an ADR? I've joined the group of people who love your site!!! Thanks so much, very valuable for me!

    Thanks so much for the kind words. The Moms love helping Disney guests plan their trips.

    All four theme parks have character breakfast seatings before the park opens. If you have a reservation for one of those seatings, it is very easy to get into the park for your meal.

    There will be a special park entrance turnstile open for guests with early breakfast reservations. It varies from park to park, but the special entrance line is most often on one of the far ends of the row of turnstiles. There will be sign posted that says something like "Character Breakfast Entrance." If you don't see it right away, just ask any cast member. As you get to the breakfast entrance line, there will be a person with a clipboard checking to make sure that guests entering here do have reservations. Just give them your name and they will check you off the list. It is a good idea to also have your confirmation number with you in case there are any problems.

    I can confirm that if you try to get into the park through the early character meal line without a reservation, you will not be allowed to enter. I once wrote down the wrong date for an early meal and attempted to go to the Princess Storybook breakfast on a day when we did not have a reservation. I was not let into the park.
