    Hi! Staying off-site for our Jan '11 trip. We have an 8 am ADR at Tusker House in AK during morning Extra Magic Hour. Since we're not Disney hotel guests will we still be able to enter AK for our ADR? Will we be able to ride anything when our meal is done?

    Hi Lisa,

    I just checked the Animal Kingdom Calendar, and it looks like the morning extra magic hours are scheduled for Monday, January 10 (not the 11).  In any case, it wouldn't matter, if you have a reservation before the park opens, you are let in during a special entrance and guided towards the restaurant.  Generally, a character meal will take at least an hour - probably more like 90 minutes by the time you've been seated, had all of the characters stop by your table, and settled your bill.  I think it will be after 9:00 AM by the time you leave the restaurant, and the park will be open.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
