    How long does it normally take to eat at the Crystal Palace? we have reservations for 6:15 & I want to see the electric parade @ 7 Pm . Should I make the reservation earlier ?

    Hi Tonya! Crystal Palace is a great character meal -- the food on the buffet there is really tasty! Your meal at Crystal Palace would probably take at least an hour, and if the restaurant is busy, you may have to wait 10 or 15 minutes to be seated. Although you can eat fairly quickly at a buffet since you don't have to wait for your meal to be cooked and delivered to you, it takes the characters a while to rotate through the restaurant and visit each table. Plus, if you're like my family, you'll want time to make multiple trips to the buffet! I don't want you to have to rush through your meal to see the parade, so I recommend that you move your dining time earlier. Many guests stake out parade viewing spots thirty minutes or more in advance, so an earlier dining time would allow you to have a relaxing meal and then find the perfect spot to watch the parade. 

    Have a great time with Pooh and friends at Crystal Palace! Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We'd love to help!
