    We are staying at the CBR in July and have reservations for Cinderella's Royal Table at 8:35. I noticed MK doesn't open until 9:00 that day. What is the best way to get to the MK and how long do we need to plan for travel?

    Hi Brooke!

    You're going to love having an Advanced Dining Reservation before Magic Kingdom Park opens. It's very surreal walking down Main Street, USA without the hustle and bustle of an open park. Be sure to take some photos in front of the castle and along Main Street. There may be Disney's PhotoPass photographers roaming around at that time, but this varies so have your own camera at the ready.

    Typically, buses begin leaving resorts approximately one hour prior to park opening. Stop by the Concierge Desk at your resort the night before to confirm when you'll be able to get a bus. Sometimes resorts will have an earlier bus for guests with dining reservations prior to park opening. I always say to allow 45-60 minutes to travel around Walt Disney World. It's always better to be early than to be arriving at the "stroke of midnight!"

    Have a magical day,
