So you might be wondering, how exactly do you get into the Magic Kingdom or any other park before the rest of the guests get in? Well there are a couple of ways. You can find out when extra magic hours are at that park, get up extremely early to ensure that you are the first in line for the day and then when they let you through the gate run as fast as you possibly can towards the castle and snap photo after photo while you are running! Or.....you can do it my way which is to choose a day with normal operating hours (most likely an opening at 9 am), book an early breakfast reservation at Crystal Palace or an early Keys to the Kingdom tour (preferably 8 am) and then only get up moderately early to make it there on time. Stroll up the gate, tell them that you are on the list, and casually walk down the middle of Main Street with less than 50 other guests who had your same idea. Snap photos at your leisure and then show up to your reservation.
