    Only 20 more days til we head to the world!!! We have ADR at Crystal Palace for 810am, park open at 9:00, can we drive or should we take the bus. Would like to drive but can we get from parking lot to MK in time. what time should we leave PoP. Thanks

    Hi Jessica,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  You have secured my favorite advanced dining reservation.....Crystal Palace BEFORE the park opens!  There is nothing that beats getting to stroll down an empty Main Street at the Magic Kingdom.  Be sure to snap a few pictures!

    We always drive, and one of the benefits of arriving this early is that you will probably be in one of the closest parking sections, and will be able to easily walk to the Monorail station.  I would leave your resort at least one hour prior to your dining reservation (personally, I would leave about an hour and fifteen minutes early...I hate being late).  This will give you time to park, take the Monorail, have your bags checked and stroll down Main Street.

    Enjoy your meal, it is a great place to start your day at the Magic Kingdom!
