    Hi! We are staying at the Contemporary resort and have early reservations at CRT before the park opens. How does that work? Do we just go through the regular entrance? Do we just walk to the castle, or is there someone at the gate to escort us? Thanks

    We have had character meals in the Magic Kingdom before park opening many times in the past. 

    Just arrive at the MK about 20 minutes before your scheduled reservation. You will need to go through the security bag check, but the line should not be bad if you are going very early in the morning. Once you are through security, look for a sign that says "character breakfasts." There will be one entry queue open just for this. If you don't see it right away, just ask any cast member. There will be someone at the character breakfast queue with a clipboard checking to make sure you do have a reservation. If you are on the list, you will use your ticket to enter the park and then you just walk up to the Castle on your own. Check in at the Royal Table podium and they will take you up to your meal. 

    Hope you have a great breakfast!
