    If we have an early breakfast at the Crystal Palace before the park opens how long before your reservation time will they allow you to enter the park?

    Hi there Donna!

    This is one of my favorite recommendations to share with guests! I try to always book an early breakfast prior to any park opening so that I can snag plenty of photos of my family without anyone else in the background! I have gorgeous shots in front of Cinderella Castle and it looks as though the entire Magic Kingdom Park has opened just for us! The same holds true for Epcot when we experience an early meal at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Norway!

    Typically, the cast members will allow you entry from 45 minutes up to one hour prior to your dining reservation so that you can enjoy a leisurely stroll down a virtually empty Main Street U.S.A. on your way to Crystal Palace. What a delightful way to soak up the excitement of your Disney day just beginning!

    Thanks so much for visiting us here at the Walt Disney World Moms Panel! Please feel free to send more questions my way in the days leading up to your trip!
