    Hi, my family has a reservation for crystal palace at 9:10 am the park opens at 9am that day. Would we be able to get in MK a little earlier then 9am to get into MK or should we just arrive at the 9am park opening?

    Hi Sharon! Breakfast at the Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom is our favourite, and our new first morning tradition! The food is super yum and the character interaction with Pooh, Tigger and the gang is so fun! You will definitely need to arrive at the Magic Kingdom prior to opening, as I recommend you check in to the restaurant at least 15 minutes before your reservation. You will need to get through security, which can be crowded prior to opening, and then walk down Main Street USA to the restaurant. Personally, because of potential crowds at opening, I would plan to arrive between 8:15 and 8:30, which will allow you to walk through the park and take some pictures before the crowds arrive.

    Be sure to try Pooh's French Toast Sharon! Write us back with any other questions!
