    Booked for Nov. 15 to 19th. Seeing MK on 16th and 17th, doing MVMCP on 16th. Able to get early morning breakfast at Crystal Palace at 9:35 for 17th. Is this too late as park opens at 9? Kids are ages 7 and 12. Should I get earlier times as to beat crowds?

    Hi, Mary!

    If your kids are early birds, an earlier breakfast might be nice!  Your kids are going to want to be going on as many attractions as possible, and the morning hours are the time to do it!  This is when the crowds will be the smallest of the day.  With a 9:35 reservation, you will not be out of your breakfast until about 11:00.  If I were planning, I would switch to an earlier time (if available) or even change to having a lunch.  (Do a grab and go breakfast and get your day in the park started early!)

    It is totally up to you, but my kids are 12 and 9, and I know that when they see short lines at the parks, eating is the last thing they want to do.  They have things like Space Mountain, Buzz Lightyear, and Splash Mountain on their TO DO list! 

    Good luck with whatever you decide.
