    We are visiting 6/27-7/2/10. Plan: AK on 6/30, EMH morn. We are staying off-resort, so we can't take advantage of EMH. I know there will be bigger crowds but can't change AK day. Can I book ADRs for 8am and show res to get in to park for res?

    Hi Kathleen, You must be eating at Donald's Safari Breakfast in the Tusker House! That is our family's "must do" meal in the Animal Kingdom. You'll find the character interaction to be wonderful, and the variety of food to be fantastic!

    If you have an early morning dining reservation, you will show your confirmation number to get into Park. You won't be able to ride any attractions, as they randomly check Key to the World cards (Room Keys) during Extra Magic Hours. However, it sounds like right about the time you are finishing up breakfast, the Park will be open for it's regular hours anyway.

    Just enjoy a leisurely meal and then be ready to hit the Park at 9am!  The Tusker House is located right near the Kilimanjaro Safari, so you may want to head to that ride first. We like to ride it twice...once first thing in the morning, and again later in the afternoon. You'll see different animals at various times of the day.

    Hope this helps and enjoy your magical vacation!
