    My family is staying at POR, and my parents are staying at DAK. We have breakfast reservations at the Crystal Palace at 8 a.m. before the rest of MK opens. Will we all need to be at the park entrance to enter early or can my parents give the CM’s my name?

    Hi Melissa, 

    I'm so excited for you! Breakfast at The Crystal Palace is a "must do" for my family on every Walt Disney World Resort vacation! If you and your parents do not all arrive at the gate to Magic Kingdom Park at the same time, don't worry. You will all simply need to provide the Cast Member with the Advanced Dining Reservation confirmation number and the last name which is listed on your reservation. You will notice an entry point which is specifically designated for early entry for dining reservations. You can all plan to either meet up there and stroll down a practically deserted Main Street, USA together, or you can meet up at The Crystal Palace check-in podium...whichever works best for you. 

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel for assistance planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Enjoy your stay at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside (POR), and I hope your parents thoroughly enjoy Disney's Animal Kingdom (DAK) Lodge. 

    Wishing you magical memories,
