    Hi moms. We are staying at okw 12/5 - 12/16. We want to be at the gate before opening. I have been trying to find restaurant hours for breakfast. We would rather eat before we enter the park if possible. Thank you,

    Hi Jeff! My family likes to eat breakfast before the parks open too -- we've found that the first hour after opening is a great time to experience lots of rides without waiting in long lines. 

    The new dining reservation system on the Disney website now lists each restaurant's serving times for breakfast, lunch, and dinner -- if you search for a reservation, the serving times for that restaurant will be listed on the results page. The website also lists the hours for some, but not all, restaurants at the top of the restaurant menus in the Dining section of the site.

    In general the table-service restaurants in the parks open for breakfast one hour before the park opens. During your December trip, the parks open at 9 a.m. most days, and the character breakfasts in the parks begin serving at 8 a.m.. The restaurants in the resorts usually open at 7:30 a.m., although a few like Chef Mickey's and the Grand Floridian Cafe open at 7:00 a.m.. 

    Hope you have a great time in December!
