    Hi, what time do we need to leave Port Orleans Riverside to get to the Magic Kingdom for our 8am reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table? Thanks!

    Hi Karen,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How wonderful to have a reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table. If you have any princesses or princes with you, I do hope they will wear their finest royal attire for the occasion!

    To arrive a few minutes early, I suggest that you leave Disney's Port Orleans - Riverside by 7:00 a.m. Since the bus service may not be operating that early, arrange for Minnie Van Service™. If Magic Kingdom opens at 9:00 a.m. that morning and there are no early morning Extra Magic Hours, then all guests will be allowed into the park at 8:00 a.m. to enjoy the shops on Main Street, U.S.A. before the Let the Magic Begin show. With your 8:00 a.m. breakfast reservation, you should be allowed to enter earlier. When we have 8:00 a.m. breakfast reservations, we have been able to enter the park by 7:45 a.m. When you get to the park entrance, just let a cast member know that you have an 8:00 a.m. breakfast reservation and they will direct you from there.

    Karen, my family loves those early morning breakfast reservations when we can enter the park a few minutes before other guests! We always stop to take a few photos on our way to the restaurant. If you will have a princess or prince with you, I do hope she or he comes dressed in royal attire. Our girls have adored taking photos with their princess friends and I love downloading all of our photos from Memory Maker. If you have not considered it, I hope that you do! On our last trip, we took over 200 photos and had access to all of those digital copies with Memory Maker. 

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
