    I have ADR for the Crystal Palace at 8:20. The MK opens at 9:00 how and where do we enter the park before it opens. Thanks for all your help.

    Hi there, Robin!

    Lucky you!  Having an early morning dining reservation at The Crystal Palace is awesome.  The restaurant offers one of the best buffets, in my opinion, and the interaction with Pooh and Friends is a blast! Also, arriving before park opening gives you a great opportunity to enter the park with no crowds.  There's nothing like feeling that you have Main Street, USA all to yourself. 

    Once you arrive at Magic Kingdom Park, there should be a sign marked for breakfast reservations.  If not, simply ask the nearest Cast Member where to enter for an early dining reservation.  Remember that you should check-in for your reservation about 10 minutes in advance, so plan to arrive at Magic Kingdom around 20 minutes before your reservation time.  One more thing!  Be sure to have your dining confirmation number handy at the park entrance.  Enjoy, Robin!

    I wish you a truly magical vacation.
