    Hello! I have an 8 ADR at Crystal Palace, but am not staying on resort property and have a rental car. Where should I park the car and what is the best transportation option after parking to make it to the MK park entrance in time?

    Hi, Jennifer!

    A breakfast at the Crystal Palace is a great way to start you day in the Magic Kingdom.  You will need to get an early start. Plan to drive to the Magic Kingdom parking lot, arriving by 7:00 a.m.  After parking your car, hop on a tram that will take you to the TTC. At the TTC, board the monorail which will take you to the front gates of the Magic Kingdom.

    Have your breakfast reservation number handy, and a Cast Member will allow you entry into the park (with valid park admission). It is a pretty amazing experience to see the Magic Kingdom this early with very few people in the park. Make sure to snap a few pictures in front of the beautiful Cinderella Castle before checking in for your breakfast with Pooh and his Friends.

    Have a wonderful time and please say "Hi" to Pooh for me!
