    My boys don't even know yet - our first time. We have reservations to have breakfast at the Crystal Palace with Pooh and Tigger at 8:20 am, our FIRST DAY...I'm gonna cry, I am so excited! Anyway, what time can we get into the Kingdom?

    Hi, Penny!

    Wow! So exciting!

    Breakfast at The Crystal Palace is a spectacular way to start any day in Walt Disney World, but on your FIRST day? Spectacular!

    The first breakfast reservations  at Magic Kingdom will be available at 8:05, but Guests are encouraged to arrive early for check-in. As such, I'd plan to be there by 8 a.m. for your 8:20 reservation (although you could get there earlier!) to get through bag check, and head over to the special line for Guests with early morning reservations. Tell the Cast Member there your reservation information, and you'll be allowed to enter the park before it opens.

    Set aside a few extra minutes, though, as you'll absolutely want a photo in front of Cinderella Castle before your breakfast. Main Street U.S.A. will be far less crowded at this hour than it will be later in the day, so grab that photo op while you can, so you can remember that first moment you all saw Cinderella Castle in person. Yup. That first sight is THAT kind of a moment you'll all remember forever. (Sigh...)

    Send more questions as you plan this first, most important trip to WDW, Penny! I'd love to help!
