    Hi! We have ADR for Crystal Palace @ 8:05 AM. Since this is before MK opens, how do we get into the park? Thanks!

    Hi Janelle!

    This is my absolute favorite time to eat at Crystal Palace!  I love walking down Main Street U.S.A. before the park opens!

    I'm assuming you are staying on-site with my answer.  Generally, the transportation system begins operations one hour prior to the parks opening.  If you need assistance with transportation, check in with the front desk of your resort the day before your early morning reservation and they will help secure transportation for you.

    Once you arrive at Magic Kingdom, you'll need to go through security to have your bags checked and then head over to the open turnstiles.  You'll be able to check in with a cast member to gain entrance at 8:00.  I always bring my reservation number, just in case.  If there is any confusion once you arrive at MK, just ask the security guard as you go through bag check or any of the cast members.

    Have a great time!  Diane  :)
