    We have ADR at 8:15 am for CP. How early can we enter the park, as I would like to get pictures (including photopass) prior to our reservation. Is 7:45 too early?

    Hi Kathy,

    I think 7:45 am is a great time to be at the gates of the Magic Kingdom if you have an 8:15 am breakfast reservation at the Crystal Palace.  After all, they typically advise guests to arrive 15-20 minutes in advance of your reservation time.  Just bring your dining reservation confirmation number to share with the Cast Member at the gates so that you will be permitted to enter before rope drop. 

    This really is a great time of day to walk down Main Street U.S.A. and get some beautiful photographs of the castle before the park is filled with people.  It is not guaranteed, however, that a PhotoPass photographer will be available before normal park hours so be sure to bring your own camera.  Don't hesitate to ask other Cast Members to snap a photo of your whole group if the PhotoPass photographers are not yet at their stations. 

    Enjoy a delightful breakfast with Pooh and friends at the Crystal Palace!
