    I was hoping to book an early breakfast reservation at The Crystal Palace during our stay at All Star Movies. Since the resort bus transportation does not start until 45 minutes before park open, how can we get to Magic Kingdom early?

    Hi Laura!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    The Crystal Palace is one of my favourite dining locations, and breakfast there is a perfect way to start your day at Magic Kingdom Park.  It's such a beautiful setting, but that aside it's also great fun to be greeted by Winnie the Pooh and friends while you enjoy a delicious meal.  Please be ready to make your dining reservation at this restaurant at 60 days in advance as it is a very popular location.

    If you are making a very early reservation which is too early for the Disney Buses, I would recommend using a Lyft ride. You just need to download the Lyft app to your phone which gives you a selection of available cars (with prices and varying pickup times).  You make payment on the app before your ride, so it's really simple to use.  You can also order a Minnie Van via this app if you fancy traveling in style!  It's also worth noting that the only car service that is permitted to drop you at the entrance to Magic Kingdom Park is the Minnie Van Service.  All other private cars and taxis have to stop at the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC) from where you will have to take a monorail or ferryboat across to the park entrance (therefore adding more time to your journey).

    Remember to check the park hours for the day of your visit, as these are subject to change and you might be able to work it so that a Disney Bus can take you there in good time for your reservation.  When you enter the park you'll see there's a separate entrance for Guests with early dining reservations, so you can avoid any queues.  

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  You can also send me a direct question if you wish.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation, and keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official news about events that may be happening during your stay.
