    We have breakfast reservation at 8:00 am at the Crystal Palace but the Magic Kingdom doesn't open until 9:00 am. When will we be allowed in the park to head to the restaurant? Will we be permitted to take pictures on a mostly empty Main Street?

    Hi Amy!  Many of the parks have early character dining opportunities. The important thing to remember is to get there early enough to make the walk from the entrance to the restaurant so you are not late. Each park will have a separate gate where you will need to go through. Cast members will have your reservation name and number on a sheet and you will be allowed in. Do NOT wait in the regular lines to enter.

    You can snap some pictures as you are walking to the restaurant but don't get caught up in that so you miss your time.  Since the park is not open for day guests  you will only be allowed to go in certain locations where the dining is. It will be a great time to get a shot of the castle without lots of heads in your photos! Enjoy!
