    Erin - thanks for your answer. I was just able to get 8:05 Crystal Palace reservations so am super excited about my chances for great Main Street pictures! With 8:05 what time will they let us in the park? Thanks again!

    Hi Kari,

    I'm so glad you were able to get the early reservation!

    They should let you into the park about 15 minutes prior to your reservation. Personally, I'd be at the Magic Kingdom by 7:30 at the latest. This will give you a chance to scope out the scene and figure out which turnstile will be open for early breakfast/BBB reservations. Get yourself near the front of that line. You'll then be in a good position to be one of the first into the park when they do start letting folks inside.

    There are usually a few cast members on Main Street at that time, setting up for the day. They're pretty used to guests wanting to get the early morning shot. You can feel free to politely ask them to step out of your frame for a second if that makes your picture better. Or better yet, ask them to take some photos for you. This way you'll be able to get the entire family in the picture.

    Have a great time!
