    We would like to eat breakfast at they Crystal Palace Restaurant in the Magic Kingdom. Does it open the same time the park opens or can you eat there sooner? Thank you.

    The hours of operation vary seasonally, but the Crystal Palace often does open sooner that the rest of the Magic Kingdom. This actually one of my family's favorite ways to experience the Crystal Palace. We make a dining reservation there for 8:00 a.m. and then we're just finishing our meal when the park opens at 9:00, and we're all ready to experience the magic.

    If you have an early meal at any of the theme parks, just arrive at the park about 20 minutes before your reservation time. You will find a special character meal entrance line. (If you don't see it right away just ask a cast member.) They will check your name off the reservation list and allow you to enter the park. You will need a park ticket to enter.

    To make a reservation for the Crystal Palace or any Disney restaurant, just call Disney Dining at 407-WDW-DINE.
