    If I make an early ADR at either Crystal Palace or Tusker House for breakfast, are you allowed to leave the restaurant before the park actually opens? Not necessarily ride rides or shop, but are you confined to the restaurant?

    Hi Belinda,

    You are not confined to the restaurant before official park opening.  In fact, that's one of the added bonuses of an early breakfast reservation in a theme park.  Rides may not be operating, but there are a few sections of the park where you may wander before the park gets crowded and those moments are magical, indeed.  For instance, some people book an early breakfast reservation at the Crystal Palace just so they can gain early entry to the Magic Kingdom and take photos as they stroll down Main Street U.S.A. on their way to breakfast.  This is one of the only times you can get photos of Cinderella Castle without other guests in the shot.  So enjoy your magical mornings in Disney's Animal Kingdom and the Magic Kingdom.

    Let the memories begin!
