    I would like to experience MK when it is empty. Can you suggest restaurants that allow my family (total 11 ppl) to get into MK before it opens or stay later (after closing)? Also suggest a restaurant with awesome view of the fireworks @ MK?

    Howdy Patricia!

    Welcome to planDisney!  I love to chat about dining experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort!  Thank you for sharing your question with us!

    When I get a “Rumbly in my Tumbly” at the Walt Disney World Resort, there is always a dining option to hit the spot!  Visiting the Magic Kingdom Park before the theme park opens is “What Dreams are made of!”  When you mix dining and the Magic Kingdom Park before or after park hours together, you will have an experience like no other!  This combination is definitely a dream come true!  At this time, breakfast options before the theme park opens are minimal. Still, since your vacation is several months away, I am sure you will have several options to choose from when your window opens up to make your advanced dining reservations.  I have enjoyed many early breakfast experiences at The Crystal Palace!  This is an excellent option for breakfast (when it returns) or dinner.  My family and I have enjoyed watching the different Magic Kingdom Park fireworks over the years from the porch of The Crystal Palace.  I recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog to see when breakfast hours return to this fabulous dining experience!

    Since you will be visiting during June of next year, you will be able to experience all the festivities scheduled for the 50th-anniversary celebration of the Walt Disney World Resort!  I am super excited about the nighttime spectacular that will be uniquely designed for this once-in-a-lifetime 18-month event!  Disney Enchantment will be a nighttime spectacular that will extend from Cinderella Castle down Main Street, U.S.A.  To stay informed of all the announcements about this EPIC celebration, go to “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” and “Sign Up!”

    As you continue to plan your visit to Neverland, if you have any more questions, please come back to planDisney!  We are always here to help you with all your planning questions, Patricia!

    See Ya Real Soon,
