    Hi Moms. My family and I are visiting WDW in April and we have booked a character breakfast at the Crystal Palace Magic Kingdom. The breakfast starts at 8.40am yet the park doesn't open until 9.00am. Will we be allowed into the park before it opens?

    Hello Paul,

    You will most certainly be able to enter Magic Kingdom Park prior to opening in order to enjoy your fabulous breakfast at The Crystal Palace. When you arrive at Magic Kingdom Park, look for the sign for early dining reservation entry. You will check in with a Cast Member who will scan your park admission and allow you into the park for your meal. Be sure to have your camera ready because it is breathtaking to be able to walk down a nearly empty Main Street, USA or capture a rare photo of Cinderella Castle without other guests in the background. I always say you get the feeling of the magic "waking up" when you're in the park before official opening. 

    Enjoy your breakfast with Pooh and friends, Paul, and please be sure to come back and see us again if you have any additional queries.

    Have a magical day,
