    Thanks for help so far. Hoping to book Pirate League for 11 yo niece and BBB for DD (3 & 6) on Dec 11 earliest appt poss.Staying offsite, what time are we able to get into the park if we have 9 am bookings? What entrance will get us to both the fastest

    Hi Sherry,

    It sounds like you have great experiences in mind for your niece and daughters!

    Guests with early appointments and early dining reservations are normally allowed into the park about a half hour before their reservations. One entrance gate at the front of the park will be designated for those entering early. (You will need to provide your reservation number to the cast member manning the entrance.)

    I recommend that you arrive at the Magic Kingdom parking lot an hour or more before your reservation to give yourself time to get from the car to the Transportation and Ticket Center and then the entrance to Magic Kingdom on the monorail or ferry boat.

    One of the additional benefits to early entry is the chance to take some pictures on Main Street before other guests are allowed in. It can feel as if Magic Kingdom is your private park.

    Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is in Cinderella Castle, at the end of Main Street. The Pirate's League is in Adventureland, near Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. It is probably a 5-minute walk from one to the other if there aren't many other guests to contend with.

    Once the girls have finished their transformations, you will be ready for a fun-filled day inside the park, which will be all decked out for the holidays.

    Please let me know if I can offer any other help as you plan your trip. Early December is a wonderful time in the Walt Disney World resort. Enjoy!
