    Hi moms! We have an ADR for crystal palace at 8am on April 6. MK due to open at 9, will we be able to get fastpass+ before the park opens? Also, if grandparents don't want to go on any fastpass+ rides, can other members of party use their fastpass+? Thanks

    Hi there, Judith!

    Congratulations on scoring such an awesome Advanced Dining Reservation at Crystal Palace! I just love those early breakfast reservations. There is nothing more magical to me than walking down a practically empty Main Street USA prior to the Park opening.

    It usually takes about 90-minutes for a Character meal by the time you eat and have a visit with each of the Characters making their rounds. You may finish up faster than that though, it really depends on how much time your family spends interacting and taking photos.

    If you have a particular Attraction in mind that you'd like to get a FastPass+ for, I would head directly to that Attraction as soon as you finish breakfast. You might even have time to go on the Attraction and get a FastPass+ for later on in the day! I have let my kids use a FastPass+ that I'd scheduled for myself by just letting them take my MagicBand with them. It worked out just fine so you may be able to do the same if the grandparents don't want to ride. You can always ask a Cast Member if you run into any trouble.

    Thanks for stopping by the Moms Panel with your question, Judith! Please let us know if we can help with any others you have.

    Wishing you and your family a Pixie Dusted vacation!
