    Hello, we have a dining reservation for 8:55am at the Crystal Palace. The park opens @ 9:00 and we are not on property to have early entry. Are we able to enter MK prior to opening and if so where should we enter the park. Thank you.

    Hi Lynn, and a warm welcome back to planDisney! I know it's pretty chilly and snowy in Ontario today, so why not plan a trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth and beat the winter blues?

    I'm super excited that you could score a reservation for breakfast at The Crystal Palace, one of my favourites. As you already know, booking an early breakfast reservation is a fantastic way to avoid the crowds and capture some awesome photos in front of Cinderella Castle without the crowds. If you have a reservation, you'll usually be allowed to enter the park 15 minutes early to your reservation time. Once you pass through security, a friendly Cast member will be there to check your reservation and let you into the park. It's awesome, right? 

    Now, I checked the park's opening times for the week you're visiting, and it's important to note that there will be Early Theme Park Entry for Disney Resort Hotel Guests every day, usually starting around 7:30 AM or 8:30 AM. When you arrive for your breakfast reservation, the park will already be open for Disney Resort Hotel Guests for at least 25 minutes.

    No worries though, you'll still be able to enter the park before your 8:55 AM breakfast reservation. To ensure a stress-free start to your day, I recommend that you arrive at the park around 8:30 AM. This way, you'll have plenty of time to pass through security, check your reservation, and leisurely make your way to The Crystal Palace for a delightful breakfast. 

    Lynn, I really hope you have a fantastic time at The Crystal Palace and indulge in all the mouth-watering Mickey Waffles you can eat. Trust me, you'll miss it the minute you get back home! And remember, if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to come back. It's always a pleasure to help out a friend like you.
