Can I Enter the Park Early If I Have A Disney Dining Reservation?

Castle View

Yes!  Disney has this all set up for you!  When you have a Disney Dining Reservation before the park opens, you will proceed to the turnstile entrance.  Disney will have signs set up to guide you to the correct area. If you do not see these, just ask the nearest cast member and they will point you in the correct direction.  Upon arrival at the turnstile, the cast members will be checking guests in to make sure you do in fact have a dining reservation.  Be prepared to provide them with your name!  🙂

Quick Tip!

Be sure to enjoy the “emptiness” of the park!  This does not happen very often!  Stop quick to take picture in front of Cinderella’s Castle (in Magic Kingdom) or in front of Spaceship Earth (in EPCOT). These are once in a life time pictures!  Enjoy your early entrance!  🙂
