    Hello! We have an 8am dining reservation at Crystal Palace during our visit in February. How early will we be allowed to enter the park? Magic Kingdom will also be having extra magic hours that day (8am until 9am), will that have any affect on us?

    Hi Michelle!

    Starting your Magic Kingdom day at the Crystal Palace is a perfect plan. You will enjoy their great buffet and the meet and greets of Pooh and friends during breakfast.

    Guests with early dining reservations will need to proceed to the far left queues at the entrance. You will see cast members holding clip boards who will check you in for your reservation time. Since you have an 8am time you will be allowed into the park before other guests at approximately 7:45am. This will give you enough time to walk down Main Street to reach the Crystal Palace.

    There will be no issue for you getting into the park on time. Extra Magic Hour guests will be waiting in the queue lines for the 8am opening.
