    We have an ADR at the Crystal Palace. Do you have to have a ticket to Magic Kingdom to access resturant. The weather is prediciting thunder storms that day and we dont know that we want to try and do a park in the rain. Any advice would be great.

    Hi Mary!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.  The Crystal Palace is located inside the Magic Kingdom; thus you will have to have a park ticket for the day you want to dine there.  With regards to doing a park in the rain, I say "go for it".  That's especially true for the Magic Kingdom since it has so many attractions and stores to visit if it is raining!  That's because the rain does cut down the crowds significantly.  While it may be a little messy, you can get a lot more accomplished in the rain than you can if it's a beautiful sunny day.  While that's true at all of the theme parks, some parks like Disney's Animal Kingdom have relatively few inside attractions making it hard to tour that park in the rain.  I think the best is the Magic Kingdom, followed by Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    I hope this helps!  Write back with more questions!
