Last time we ate here we had an 8:10 PS. We finished eating & saw all the characters by 8:45. Since the park was not open yet, we all just hung out by the Dinosaur ride & was one of the first ones to ride it that day! Now in December we will be eating again at Donald's breakfast. We have an 8:00 PS. I am hoping to be finished again by 8:45. But this time we are thinking of heading up to the Safari ride after we are done. Is it possible to head up to the Safari ride & hang out there until the park is open? Or do they have some areas roped off? How near can you get to the Safari area before the park is officially opened?
