    My kids want to eat at Crystal Palace for breakfast. I'm not a breakfast eater. My wife will be there and eating too. Will the staff let me join them at the table but not eat, or is it a requirement that each person at the restaurant pay for the buffet?

    Hello Grant, 
    I can't think of a better way for you and your lovely family to begin your Disney day other than with breakfast at The Crystal Palace within the Magic Kingdom Park
    I completely understand your concern and have indeed come across this situation during my own family trips to Walt Disney World Resort.  
    In our particular case we explained the dining dilemma to the Cast Member seating us and were permitted to dine even though my husband did not eat from the buffet; in fact he just purchased a coffee and watched us relish our food!  
    I'm sure if you do as we did, there shouldn't be an issue; after all part of the magic of vacationing with your loved ones at Walt Disney World Resort is that you can enjoy precious time together as a family.  
    If I can help you further plan your trip to Walt Disney World Resort please come back and ask me another question.
    Have a great Disney day.
