    You guys are great! Is breakfast at The Crystal Palace too young for my 9-year-old son? Can he eat off the adult buffet, or does he have to use the kids one? Want to get into MK before official opening time, but want to get the right venue! Thanks!

    Hi, Barb!

    Breakfast at The Crystal Palace isn't too young for anyone; the food is fabulous!

    In fact, when several of my Disney Parks Moms Panel buddies and I met for breakfast last summer, we chose The Crystal Palace and not one of us had a child with's that good.

    Your son is welcome to try any of the delicious dishes at this great buffet breakfast; there just happens to be a kids' buffet for those little diners who don't want to try anything from the regular buffet. That being said, one of MY favorites from The Crystal Palace's breakfast buffet is actually at the KIDS' buffet!  Pooh's Puffed French Toast is simply delicious; you'll have to try some, too!

    Book an early breakfast at The Crystal Palace, then arrive about 20 minutes prior to your reservation. You'll be allowed into Magic Kingdom upon arrival (before it opens!) and will be able to snap some wonderful shots of the stunning Cinderella Castle and Main Street, USA with very few people in your photos. Check in at the restaurant, eat 'til your hearts' content and you'll be out within an hour. At that point, head to your first choice portion of the park and enjoy the quiet before the crowds start to flock into the park. Perfect plan, Barb!
