  1. Thank you for great CURRENT advice and for touching on going with young children/preschoolers!
    We are going nov 30-dec.5th with our 4 year old and have a breakfast reservation for Cinderalla’s Royal Table at 9:10 monday morning. Will they let us in the park early so that we make it to the castle in time for our reservation or will they make us wait until rope drop/walk through behind cast members? If they let us in before rope drop, how early can we go? We would like to take pictures and not have to run to the castle.

    • They should let you in a bit early. Check at the character breakfast turnstyles for early entry. It should be all the way to the left near the monorail. I’d say I’m only asked for my reservation number half of the time!

  2. We are planning our Disney trip for October. I just made all of our reservations, and I was able to make a lunch reservation for Be Our Guest. Do you know if this is still Quick Service or have they changed it for lunch?

  3. We are going Nov 19-23 this year and I am looking at staying off site to save major $$$. I have found many hotels that offer free breakfast and shuttles to the park.
    Do you know if the dining plan can still be purchased of you stay off site?
