Quick early entry question..

I have never done the early entry for ADRs at MK....I know they have early entry for CP and CRT. The earliest advertised seating is 8:05. How soon before that would they let us in the park?? I was hoping for a photo op on an almost empty Main Street. Do you think it would be perhaps 10-15 minutes before the ressy?? That would be more than enough time. Also what are the chances of a photopass photographer at that time?? TIA

When we were there a few weeks ago we had 8:15 am ADRs and they let us in about 7:55am. We had time for a picture and by the time we arrived at CP there was a line to check-in. My advice is take the pictures and don't worry. Everyone is checking in so you will be fine.

You should arrive for your reservation at least 20 minutes before to check in. So you will be able to get early entry at least 45 minutes before the reservation.

We had early ADRs at CP the last 2 trips.I think we got in between 7:45 & 7:55. We did have time for 2 seperate Photpass photograghers both times. One in front of the castle & the Walt /Mickey statue. The other one in the middle of Main Street near the bakery. Our ADR last year was at 8:20 and we got to CP about 10 mins before the ADR.

Not true!!!
As PP have said, for the first ADR's at the MK they let you in between 7:45 and 7;55

There are Photopass Photogtaphers waiting for you on a nearly empty Main St
I have some great photos.

Cp @ 8:05

We will be having our breakfast at CP at 8:05. I was told the earliest we could get into the park would be 7:45. I plan to get on the bus from POP as close to 7 as possible so we can be one of the first in line. Can't wait for those Photopass pics! Is it October yet?
