    We have an ADR at CP at 9:00 a.m. on a day when MK opens at 9:00 a.m.. How do we get into the park 15-20 minutes early for our reservation?

    All four theme parks have character breakfast seatings before the park opens. If you have a reservation for one of those seatings, it is very easy to get into the park for your meal.

    There will be a special park entrance turnstile open for guests with early breakfast reservations. It varies from park to park, but the special entrance line is most often on one of the far ends of the row of turnstiles. There will be sign posted that says something like "Character Breakfast Entrance." If you don't see it right away, just ask any cast member. As you get to the breakfast entrance line, there will be a person with a clipboard checking to make sure that guests entering here do have reservations. Just give them your name and they will check you off the list. It is a good idea to also have your confirmation number with you in case there are any problems.

    For pre-opening character meals at the Magic Kingdom, I like to try to be in the park at least 15-20 minutes prior to my reservation time. The park will only be populated with the few guests going to early breakfasts. This is one of the few times when it might be possible to snap a photo of your family in front of the iconic Cinderella Castle without other guests in the background of your picture.

    Have a great meal at the Crystal Palace. Give Eeyore a hug from me!
