    1st trip to WDW 7/7-7/16, we have reservation for Akershaus banquet hall @ 8:35am but it says park doesn't open till 9am. How do we get in the park to get to our reservation??

    Hello Tiffany!  I am very excited to hear that you and your family will be coming to Walt Disney World for the very first time!   You and your family must be anxiously awaiting for July to come around.  Do not worry about not being able to get to your reservation on time.  All you and your family will need to do is just arrive at Epcot as if you were getting ready to enter into the park.  As you approach the entrance, you will notice a sign that may say "character dining".  A cast member will be on hand to help you with any information you may need.  At this point, you will be allowed to enter into the park and proceed to Akershus Royal Banquet Hall.  Do not be afraid to ask the cast members any questions you may have.  They are always ready to help and are very sweet.  Since your reservation is set for 8:35 a.m., I would arrive at Epcot between 8:00 and 8:15 a.m.  

    I hope this helps ease your mind.  You and your family are going to have a fantastic time.  Please let me know if you have any more questions concerning your upcoming trip!  Have a magical day!
