    Question What time should I get to the park?

    Hi all. I will be attending the meet and I'm going to join someone for breakfast at 9:05a.m. at the Carnation Cafe. I was hoping you can help answer these questions for me:

    1. This is the first time I'm using my AP that I got at costco, where do I exchange it? Are the lines long?

    2. What time should I be at the tram to get into the park in order to exchange the AP and be able to meet for breakfast at 9:05?

    Thank you very much! I may add additional questions later, but this is all for now.

    Re: What time should I get to the park?

    Depends on the day. If it's a weekday, you will probably want to be at the entrance gates by 8:45. If it's a weekend day or holiday, best to be at the gat8e by 8:15- 8:30 at the latest. As for your AP, have breakfast first, then go to the Bank of Mainstreet and wait in what is generally a lengthy line (20 minutes) to exchange your ticket for your AP! Have fun

    Unlike tickets bought online or in other stores, tickets purchased at Costco must be redeemed at the ticket booths before you go through the turnstiles. If the gate opens at 9:00 and you have to get your ticket processed at the booth first, I suggest getting there as early as possible, as the lines at the booths may be long if they don't have all of them open, depending like Eric said, on what day of the week you go.

    B there at 8-8:30.

    Go to the ticket booth and exchange your cisco pass for an AP ticket

    Then go in the park. To to MS bank, right to the opera house.

    U will problably get a 20-30 min line and u will get ur AP and take a pic for ur AP.

    Then mite have enough time to go to the cafe amd meet

    You could also try the Guest Services window instead of one of the ticket booths, sometimes the line is much shorter, especially before the park opens.

    ^ yes...that's why they're generally called 'ticket booths'.

    With the Celebrate Today campaign more vistors are coming on their birthdays making the ticket booth line longer. I'll say get to the park around 8-8:30. Also you will probably be able to park on Pinocchio.

    It's okay for someone who hasn't gone to the park in 2009. Everytime I go I'm shocked that the ticket booth and Annual Pass lines are very long in the mornings. Cast Members will direct you to the Pinocchio parking. If any space is open. Pinocchio parking is across from Mickey and Friends parking. I prefer parking on Pinocchio.

    Plus if the ticket booth lines on the World of Disney side of the entrance plaza are insane (and they are) then just go across the plaza to the ticket booths on the Harbor Blvd. side. Usually they're easier.
    I'm literally a born Disney fan! I was born at Providence St. Joseph Med Center right across the street from Disney Studios in Burbank. The same hospital where Walt died.
