    What time do the Kilimanjaro safari's start when park opens early from 7am -8 am? Also have reservations for Akershus for 9:20. Epcot opens at 9am. Will we be able to enter a few minutes early to get there on time?

    Hi Julie!  Thank you for bringing another great question to us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    While Kilimanjaro Safaris is an attraction that currently does participate in Extra Magic Hours, availability of this attraction on any given day may be dependent upon the care and schedule of the animals.  As far as "extra" Extra Magic Hours which begin August 29, the calendar for Kilimanjaro Safaris for that day indicates it will begin operating for Extra Magic Hours at 7:45 am.  I recommend checking the calendar again for your specific dates closer to your arrival; often hours are updated just a few weeks in advance.  Keep in mind that the Extra Magic Hours schedule and available attractions are subject to change without notice

    Julie, you should have no trouble making it to Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in time for your breakfast with your favorite Disney Princesses.  The restaurant is about a 10-15 minute leisurely walk from Epcot's main entrance.  In my experience, Guests are usually admitted a few minutes prior to the stated opening time and held a bit further into the park, near Spaceship Earth, until park open.  At the entrance gates, you will also see signs directing Guests with breakfast reservations.  You can check in with a Cast Member there for further directions.

    I hope that helps!  Please visit the Moms Panel again any time with any additional questions you may have.  Have a wonderful visit!
