    We have an 8:05am reservation at CRT in a couple weeks. We are staying at the Wilderness Lodge, and from what I can tell, the first bus leaves around 7:00am.

    What time do they actually start letting people with ADRs into the park when the official opening time is not until 9:00am?

    Do we even need to take that early bus from WL since it is only about a 5 minute ride, and how often do they come that early?

    Finally what happens if we are done before 9:00am? Do we just wait for the rope drop to Fantasy Land in the castle walkway?

    I am not sure how often the bus will run in the morning. I would leave plenty of time though just in case.
    When you arrive at the entrance there are separate turnstyles for those with ADR's. In the past they have been way to the right, but it could have changed.
    If you should finish before 9:00 you will be allowed to stay at the castle, but would have to wait for the rope drop.

    They let us into the park around 7:50 for our 8:05 CRT ressie

    We finished just after 9am, but the park was already open for EMH on that day

    They let us in at exactly 8:00a on a non-EMH morning for our 8:05a ADR at CRT and CP.

    They let us in around 7:50 for our 8:05 ressies last week :( I was hoping for some great photo's from an empty street but I suppose those days are over since they let all the early ADRs in at once....and everyone is scrambling to get to their restaurant.

    And because everyone is scrambling to get to the rest. if one member of your group strolls along slowly they can get good pics. Wait about 5/10 min after they let everyone in and you'll be fine for pics.

    I'm not sure that the bus runs that early. I believe it starts 1 hour before the park opens, which is the same time they open the gates for ADR's.

    When we were there in Feb., we had to take the boat to CR and then the monorail over to MK in order to make our ressies.
