    I have early morning reservations at Crystal Palace before the park opens at 8:25, I wanted to take some pictures of the castle before the reservation, and wanted to know how early we could show up? Thank you for your time.

    Hi Stephanie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    I am glad to hEAR you have a reservation for breakfast at The Crystal Palace, one of my favorite restaurants at the Magic Kingdom Park. A perfect way to start a magical day!
    Yes, you will be able to enter the park before park opening hour. When you arrive at the Magic Kingdom, there will be a well marked turnstile for guests with early morning reservations. Make sure you have your reservation number and valid park ticket with you.
    I usually arrive 20 to 25 minutes before my reservation hour. I like to walk slower and stop to take pictures of empty Main Street U.S.A. and Cinderella Castle before I get to the restaurant. That moment when the park is almost empty is absolutely special and unforgettable!
    Let us know if you have further questions. It is a pleasure to help.
    Have a pixie-dusted day!

With so much to explore, I would love to help you plan your next Walt Disney World vacation and discover all the fantasy and magic this special place has to offer. Learn More About Gina
