    We arrive at the world in 18 days!! YAY we have 7 in our party and ADR at the Crystal Palace at 8:25. MK doesn't open till 9. What is the best way to get there? Thanks a million Love the panel.

    Hi Michelle!  If you are staying at a Disney resort you can take a bus to Magic Kingdom (unless you are staying in the MK area, you can take a boat and/or monorail).  Buses typically start running 60-90 minutes prior to park opening.  You may want to check with your concierge desk the day before to get an accurate time on when the buses will start running.  If buses won't be starting until 8:00, a better option might be to take a taxi van.  Bell services can help you with that.

    If you are staying off property and taking your own vehicle, you will be allowed to park in the Magic Kingdom parking lot.  

    Once you arrive at Magic Kingdom, head to the line for early dining entry.  If you can, try to get there a few minutes early so you can take your time strolling down Main Street U.S.A.  This is also a fabulous time to get an awesome picture of your family in front of Cinderella Castle without too many people in the background.

    I hope you enjoy your breakfast at Crystal Palace as much as we do!  Diane
