    Hello! We have booked breakfast with Winnie the Pooh and friends at 8.05am before the park opens at 830am (magic hours) what time will we be able to have access to the park to get to our dining (and see Main Street without the crowds!!)

    Hi Rachael,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your question! Your holiday will be coming up soon, can you feel the magic?

    How exciting to hear that you snagged a breakfast reservation at The Crystal Palace, you and your party will definitely create some great memories! From my experience, guests with dining reservations before opening will follow the direction of the Cast Members to the gates so you can scan your tickets and head into Magic Kingdom Park

    Since your reservation is early, I suggest being through security and at the gate by 7:45 a.m. if possible. This way you can be let into the Park and you’re on time for your reservation. 

    As you’re walking over to the restaurant, you’re right, a quiet Main Street U.S.A. will definitely be a sight to see (especially if the holiday decorations begin to go up)! Make sure to have your cameras ready so you can snap a few quick pictures before heading over to the check-in stand at Crystal Palace. Keep in mind that you will need to follow the direction of any Cast Members, so if they direct you one way, please follow their path. 

    I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is helpful as you prepare for your upcoming holiday. If you have any other questions in the meantime, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!

    The Magic Is Calling,
