    Hello. Absolutely love your blog. I have an 8:40 breakfast reservation at The Crystal Palace, what is the earliest I can arrive at the Magic Kingdom and be permitted to enter. The park is scheduled to open at 9:00am. Thank you.

    Hi Emily,

    I'm so happy to hear that you enjoy the Moms Panel!

    You have chosen my family's absolute "must do" restaurant. We love Crystal Palace for breakfast! Be sure to bring your confirmation number with you because the Cast Members will ask to see it to allow early entry into the Magic Kingdom. If the park opens at 9:00am, I would plan to be at the gate by 8:00. You'll be able to stroll down a primarily empty Main Street, USA and get some great photos of your family in front of Cinderella Castle without crowds in the background.

    By the way, be sure to try the "Pooh Toast", it's my favorite. In fact, I answered this question specifically about the Pooh Toast at Crystal Palace.

    Wishing you a wonderful vacation,
