    We're considering a breakfast at Crystal Palace before the park opens. The earliest reservation available was 8:20 a.m. Will this allow enough time to enjoy our meal and meet all the Pooh characters before the park opens at 9?

    Good morning, Robin! Breakfast with Winnie the Pooh and friends at The Crystal Place is a great way to cure a rumbly in anyone's tummy. Be sure to have plenty of Pooh's Puffed French Toast so you have lots of energy to bounce with Tigger!

    My family has dined at The Crystal Palace four times, with Advanced Dining Reservations from 8:05 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. I am sorry to say that in each of these trips, we had to miss visiting with Eeyore so we could head to our favorite rides at park opening. However, we did have plenty of time to enjoy all of the delicious buffet offerings. If meeting all of the characters is important to your family, but you still want to enjoy Magic Kingdom Park during the first few hours of park opening while the crowds are lower, then you may want to consider a later breakfast or other meal. A breakfast Advanced Dining Reservation after 10:00 a.m. would give you plenty of time to enjoy your favorite attractions, such as The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, with lower waits. You could then head over to The Crystal Palace and dine with all of Pooh's friends without feeling like you need to miss Eeyore.

    I hope you have a Tiggerific day at Magic Kingdom, Robin. T-T-F-N! Ta-Ta For Now!
