    We have an ADR for Crystal Palace at 8.25am, and magic kingdom does not open until 9am that day, and the TTC will not open until 8am. As we are staying off site, can we get dropped off at contemporary and walk over?

    Sara, thank you for stopping by planDisney. This is an important question to make sure you get to your reservation. 

    Magic Kingdom Park is a special place and everyone loves it. When you visit on the morning of your meal, you will have a new love and admiration for how beautiful it looks as you walk down an amply Main Street U.S.A. The sidewalks will be freshly cleaned and if you look hard enough you will see it twinkle. 

    In the morning of every park day the TTC or Ticket and Transportation Center will open an hour before park opening. When you approach the main gates you will show the Cast Member your Advanced Dining Reservation for The Crystal Palace. This all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet is so delicious and meeting Winnie the Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Woods is going to be a morning you likely will not forget for years to come. If you are dropped off prior to 8 a.m. you should be able to arrive to your reservation time using the Disney Monorail. Usually to enter one of the Disney Resorts Collection Hotel you will need reservations for a stay or to dine. The Cast Member at the gatehouse will normally ask to see your reservations. They may not ask if you are only being dropped off, it is always at the discretion of the Cast Member at the gate. Because I like to play it safe, I would recommend being at the TTC for around 15-20 minutes before the transportation starts it’s first trip of the day. 

    Hopefully, this information is what you need to arrive on time. If you have any other questions about planning stop back anytime

    See ya real soon,
