    Hi! What are the chances of getting seated at Crystal Palace without an ADR? If we might be able to,what time of day might is be easier? There are NO open times for our entire stay. Thanks! You all have been a great help!

    Hi, Polly!  This is my pure, unscientific observation of the Crystal Palace!   This location has many young mouseketeers dining here due to the wonderful dinner hosts:   Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore and pals.  Because of the young crowd, it is popular for breakfast, lunch, and early dinner.   It seems to me that when you go past around 7:30/8:00 pm, it looks to be emptying out, and the crowds are certainly not forming on the porch. 

    While an Advance Dining Reservation is always your best bet, try walking up and see what they can do for you.   Be flexible, and if they say no, head back later in the evening to see if they can squeeze you in!   If not, give counter service a try - Cosmic Rays and Columbia Harbor House are favorites in my family!

    Good luck and I hope you get to dine at this lovely Magic Kingdom restaurant.  Say "HI" to Pooh for me!
