    If we finish 8:05 Crystal Palace before MK opens at 9, do we have to stay there or will they let us head toward the rides to wait for the park to open?

    Hi, there! 

     Jennifer, I'm so glad to see you have a spring visit to the Walt Disney World Resort planned! My family loves to book early-morning breakfast reservations at Magic Kingdom Park. It's a lovely way to begin a magical day! I'm happy to answer your question about your upcoming breakfast reservation at The Crystal Palace. 

     If you finish your breakfast at The Crystal Palace before park opening at 9:00 AM, you do not need to stay there. You are welcome to leave the restaurant and stroll down Main Street, U.S.A., or sit on a park bench to enjoy the early morning light falling on Cinderella Castle. This is also a perfect time for some family shots taken by a Disney PhotoPass Photographer! Magic Kingdom's opening ceremony, Let the Magic Begin, occurs shortly before park opening in front of Cinderella Castle. You won't want to miss this official welcome from Mickey Mouse! 

     Jennifer, if getting to a specific attraction as quickly as possible is your priority after breakfast, head for the "land" where the attraction is located. Cast Members will stand at the entrances of those areas and escort Guests in once the park has officially opened. 

     My family recently waited at the entrance to Liberty Square because Big Thunder Mountain Railroad was our first morning priority. We had a rootin' tootin' good time with the Cast Members who led us through Liberty Square and into Frontierland! 

     Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel again, Jennifer. Wishing you a most magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
