    Hi moms. ME, my wife, and two children will be going to HS on 9/19. We have reservations at Hollywood & Vine at 8:30 a.m. I noticed that the park does not open till 9 a.m. that day? Will they let us into the park early?

    Hello, Terry!

    You are going to have a spectacular time on your upcoming family vacation to Walt Disney World! Hollywood Studios is a great park, and a wonderful way to start any park day is with an early breakfast right in the heart of the magic. Good choice!

    For Guests with either dining reservations or tours scheduled prior to any park open, entrance into the park is really very simple. Just arrive at the park entrance at least 20 minutes prior to your reservation time (I like to get there 1/2 hour early to allow us to take family photos in front of the park icons without lots of crowds nearby). At that time, there will be a designated turnstile or two specifically for these Guests. A Cast Member will ask you if you have a reservation and will confirm that your party is on the list; at that point, you will be welcome to enter the park. It's that simple.

    We just did this last month as we entered Epcot at 8:30 for an early breakfast with the princesses, and some of my favorite group photos are of that morning. Everyone is refreshed, happy to be in the park early, and there isn't another Guest in sight! That's a really special time to grab a photo, so be sure to do so, if you have the time.

    Have a wonderful trip!
