    Hi! We are visiting Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom next week for the first time and we have a dining reservation for breakfast at 8:20 am but the park doesnt open until 9am? So I am just wondering how this all works...? Thanks so much for your help!

    Hi Krystn,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Congratulations to you for securing an early dining reservation in Magic Kingdom. My family loves dining reservations before park opening. It gives us a chance to get into the park before the crowds arrive!

    When you get to the park entrance, ask a Cast Member to show you the line for guests with early dining reservations. Guests can now enter Magic Kingdom a little early to see the Let the Magic Begin Show. If you want to beat those crowds, arrive no later than 8:00.  You should be able to enter using the line for guests with early dining reservations. 

    Have your camera ready or find a PhotoPass photographer! My family loves taking photos when the park is nearly empty. Those moments are priceless.

    Have a magical trip!
